Houdini Main Changelogs

 
19.5.73

Added a 'Clip Range' parameter to MotionClip Extract which can be used to declare that the extraction frame rate and range should be obtained from the clipinfo detail attribute of the input MotionClip.

Thu. November 18, 2021
19.5.72

Fixed a bug with hou.Point.dictListAttribValue() function not working correctly when given an attribute name.

Wed. November 17, 2021
19.5.72

Fixed an issue where the Constraint Network DOP's guide geometry incorrectly displayed constraints which have anchors with a non-empty but invalid name (these constraints are ignored by solvers).

Wed. November 17, 2021
19.5.72

Fixed hou.Node.asCode(recurse=True) to include sticky notes.

Wed. November 17, 2021
19.5.72

Fixed a regression when loading packages with a "package_path" keyword set with environment variables.

Wed. November 17, 2021
19.5.72

Relaxes a condition on the input geometry to TopoTransfer where each mesh component must have 8 or more vertices. This abstracts the weighting scheme used in the mesh reduction step such that now vertices are weighted to at most 8 vertices.

Wed. November 17, 2021
19.5.72

The Curve::2.0 SOP shelf tool now sets the selectable template flag on the currently selected node when placed.

Wed. November 17, 2021
19.5.71

The pdg Python module now has a pdg.AttributeUtils.ignoreWarnings context block that can be used to temporarily supress @attrib expression warnings caused by the lack of valid work item data.

Tue. November 16, 2021
19.5.71

Updated FBX to version 2020.

Tue. November 16, 2021
19.5.71

Failed attribute evaluations in expressions on TOP nodes now report more detailed warning messages. For example, out of bounds indices, mixing up string/numeric attribute types, and invalid file tags now have explicit messages that describe the cause of the failed evaluation.

Tue. November 16, 2021
19.5.71

Added a new argument to HARS that enables printing of Thrift's global output logs to the standard streams. This means that by default, HARS will no longer print Thrift global errors and messages.

Tue. November 16, 2021
19.5.71

Fixed an issue where when recursively checking if child transforms have been changed, an out of range index error was thrown instead.

Tue. November 16, 2021
19.5.71

The Usd Stitch and USD Stitch Clips LOPs now allow the destination file path parameter to contain explicit SDF_FORMAT_ARGS (such as specifying that a .usd file should be written in ASCII format).

Tue. November 16, 2021
19.5.71

The Configure Primitives LOP and Edit Properties LOPs will no longer apply an API schema to a primitive (or set any attributes defined in the schema) on a primitive type that is not supported by the API schema (according to the schema's definition). Karma Render Settings/Product/Var API schemas now declare in their definitions that they can only be applied to Render Settings/Product/Var primitives.

Tue. November 16, 2021
19.5.70

Fixed rotation transform issues for box collider input.

Mon. November 15, 2021
19.5.70

Fixed a HOM documentation bug where the documentation incorrectly stated that the defaultExpressionLanguage() method on the hou.MenuParmTemplate, hou.RampParmTemplate and hou.ToggleParmTemplate classes returned a tuple of script languages rather than a single script language.

Mon. November 15, 2021
19.5.70

Fixed a bug with the ROP Fetch TOP adding file paths from non-ROP inputs as outputs on work items. This was also causing those files to be deleted when running Deleting All Outputs on the ROP Fetch.

Mon. November 15, 2021
19.5.70

Fixed a bug in the Python 3 build where the HDK hcustom script added a python2.7 include directory to the header search path on the compiler line. For Linux and macOS only.

Mon. November 15, 2021
19.5.70

Fixed a potential crash in the Bullet solver when aging was enabled.

Mon. November 15, 2021
19.5.69

Baking a geometry HDA that uses packed primitives or instancing will now maintain the node instancing for the baked nodes. Previously, the baking process was doing a plain copy of the source nodes, which meant that any instancing relationships would be lost.

Sun. November 14, 2021
19.5.67

Fix regression from 18.5.666 where non-existent texture paths would get lost on FBX scene imports.

Fri. November 12, 2021
19.5.67

Added a new HOUDINI_PDG_SCHEDULER_DEBUG variable that enables debug messages for scheduler events, such as work item state changes or output files.

Fri. November 12, 2021
19.5.67

Fixed issue when an edit LOP is generated as a result of T/R/E in the select state the pivot was at the origin instead of the appropriate location for the selection.

Fri. November 12, 2021
19.5.67

When using a SOP Import or SOP Create LOP, the node now generates a warning if the imported SOP layer doesn't have a Save Path set.

Fri. November 12, 2021
19.5.67

Fixed a bug where Guide Deform was transforming the roots points of parting lines.
