Houdini 17.0.372 The Vellum Object DOP will respect its creation frame rather than always creating at start of the simulation. Mon. October 15, 2018
Houdini 17.0.372 Added 2 new helper functions for Heightfields: * HAPI_CreateHeightfieldInputNode: Helper functions used to create the nodes required for Heightfields. It will create a Heightfield SOP, unlock it, and expose its height and mask volume nodes, as well as the heightfield merge node that can be used to add additional masks data later. Heightfield data can then be set on the volume nodes via HAPI_SetHeightfieldData after calling HAPI_GetVolumeInfo/HAPI_SetVolumeInfo . * HAPI_CreateHeightfieldInputVolumeNode: Helper function used to create an Input volume node that can be used to store additional mask data for Heightfields. That volume should be connected to the merge node exposed by HAPI_CreateHeightfieldInputNode Mon. October 15, 2018
Houdini 17.0.372 The glTF ROP exporter now only exports normal maps if the Bump & Normals Texture Type is set to Normal (ignores Bump type) since the glTF format only supports normal maps. Mon. October 15, 2018
Houdini 17.0.372 Added back the ability to set keyframes using ALT-LMB on value fields in the channel list. Not all the parameter mouse modifier click shortcuts work on value fields from the channel list because the shortcuts are also using to extend the value column selection. ALT-LMB doesn't conflict so it was added. Delete Keyframe/Delete Channels are also available as keyboard shortcuts ( Del and Ctrl-Del ) if the mouse is over the channel list. The channel list gear menu shows all the keyboard shortcuts. Mon. October 15, 2018
Houdini 17.0.372 Fixed a bug where changing the value of a Key-Value Dictionary parameter through the Parameters pane did not invoke the parameter's callback script. Mon. October 15, 2018
Houdini 17.0.372 Renamed hou.GeometryDelta.copyGeoPointAttributes() to the more appropriate setPointPositionsFromString() method, which is also more flexible by allowing one to use arbitrary positions. Mon. October 15, 2018
