Houdini 6.0.215 Fixing a bug where hcollapse was crashing on Linux. Tue. February 18, 2003
Houdini 6.0.215 Fixed bug that prevented SOPs residing inside a subnet and SOPs that were subnets themselves to footprint their geometry on a re-selection. Tue. February 18, 2003
Houdini 6.0.215 Fixed crash when clicking on the Final Behavior menu in the collision POP. Tue. February 18, 2003
Houdini 6.0.214 Fixed bug where if you selected a subnet using the object Copy tool in the viewer, it would copy the contents within the object subnet and not the subnet itself. Mon. February 17, 2003

Houdini 6.0.214 Fixed bug in Windows where help browser would capture focus and wouldn't let go. Mon. February 17, 2003
Houdini 6.0.214 Light geometry has been enhanced to reflect area shapes as well. Mon. February 17, 2003
Houdini 6.0.214 Fixed bug with having a pop network in a sop network, where attributes were being referenced before being added, resulting in crashes. Mon. February 17, 2003
Houdini 6.0.214 The Edit Capture Blends tool will now warn the artist if there are no captures available for editing in the selected objects. Mon. February 17, 2003
Houdini 6.0.214 Fixed a problem where selecting "Edit Comment" from the comment button in a operator dialog would sometimes bring up several comment windows, each for a different operator. Mon. February 17, 2003
Houdini 6.0.214 On the Handles page of the Type Properties dialog, the standard Transform parameters are now listed as possible bindings for Object subnet types. Mon. February 17, 2003
Houdini 6.0.214 Fixing a problem where the split, copy, tear off, and move playbar here entries in the pane menu bars weren't disabled when they should be. Mon. February 17, 2003
Houdini 6.0.214 Houdini now requires version 6 licenses to run. It now also requires an additional beta license. Mon. February 17, 2003
Houdini 6.0.214 When instancing geometry (or lights), orientation is now more consistent with the copy SOP. Rotating the orientation now works as follows:

1) If the normal attribute exists, use this to define the
orientation.
2) If the normal attribute doesn't exist, but the velocity
attribute does, then use the velocity attribute for orientation.
3) If neither the normal or the velocity attributes exist,
then don't perform any orientation.

Houdini 6.0.212 Fixed a crash with dragging the Crop handle when in the Units was Pixels. Sat. February 15, 2003
Houdini 6.0.211 Fixing a bug where geometry files other than .geo and .bgeo would not load on Linux. Fri. February 14, 2003
Houdini 6.0.211 Fixed a problem with operator type definitions with locked contents, and which contained CHOPs exporting to other nodes inside the subnet. When an instance of this operator type was created, the CHOP would not get cooked, and so would not export its channels properly. Any existing type definitions will have to be re-saved (after forcing all problem CHOPS to recook) before this fix will take effect. Fri. February 14, 2003
Houdini 6.0.211 Fixing a problem when the top-right help button is pressed while a pane is maximized. Fri. February 14, 2003
Houdini 6.0.211 Fixed bug which prevented the opening of a Render Scheduler with a hotkey. Fri. February 14, 2003
Houdini 6.0.211 The Null SOP now can have no inputs, in which case it, as one would expect, generates no geometry. Fri. February 14, 2003
Houdini 6.0.211 You can now have merge OPs wire into the indirect inputs of subnet OPs even if those inputs are not connected to anything at the parent level. Fri. February 14, 2003
Houdini 6.0.211 The caching of the Trail SOP has been tweaked. It now removes geometry from its cache based upon when they were last needed, not on their frame number. This way, the second time playing through an animation where the cache size is less than the frame range, will cache as well as the first time. Fri. February 14, 2003
