Houdini Main Changelogs

Houdini 6.0.216 Fixed bug where sliding particles were not updating the posuv and posprim attributes when sliding along a virtually flat surface. This made it difficult to transition the particles to a stuck state. Wed. February 19, 2003
Houdini 6.0.216 The SoftTransform and SoftPeak SOPs now have the visualization mode of "None". This will cause no visualization to occur, even temporarily. Wed. February 19, 2003
Houdini 6.0.216 Fixed a crash when you tried to source an invalid script. Wed. February 19, 2003
Houdini 6.0.216 Soft Transform and Soft Peak no longer crash when no group is chosen for the operation. Wed. February 19, 2003
Houdini 6.0.216 When running the "tmgls -l" command, paths no longer start with /Director. For old behaviour the HOUDINI55_COMPATIBLITY environment variable can be turned on. Wed. February 19, 2003
Houdini 6.0.216 When running the "tmgls -l" command, paths no longer start with /Director. For old behaviour the HOUDINI55_COMPATIBLITY environment variable can be turned on. Wed. February 19, 2003

Houdini 6.0.216 If there is no middle-mouse or right-mouse help, pressing either of these buttons on the operator help question mark will display the left-mouse help. Wed. February 19, 2003
Houdini 6.0.216 When Houdini writes OPlibraries files (after Installing and Operator Type Library), the library paths are no longer written using full paths. If the library is in a subdirectory of where the OPlibraries file is, we write out a relative path. Otherwise, if the library is in a subdirectory of HIP, HOME, HSITE, or HFS, we write out the library path using the appropriate environment variable. Otherwise we still write the full path name. Wed. February 19, 2003
Houdini 6.0.216 Fixed bug where CHOPs wouldn't save channel data to any format other than .clip and .bclip under Linux. Tue. February 18, 2003
Houdini 6.0.215 Fixed bug where Houdini would crash if a subnet type operator was deleted while a network editor was viewing the contents of that subnet. The network editor would contain invalid subnet input connectors, and interacting with those connectors in any way would cause the crash. Tue. February 18, 2003
Houdini 6.0.215 Fixed bug where deleting a node that was connected to the input of a node with read-only permissions would cause Houdini to hang in an infinite loop. Tue. February 18, 2003
Houdini 6.0.215 Fixde bug where Edit SOPs would not function properly inside subnet type operator definitions with locked contents. These operators would always appear with error conditions related to permissions. Now these types of operators work properly inside operators with locked contents. Tue. February 18, 2003
Houdini 6.0.215 Fixed the Create Type From command from the RMB menu of a subnet operator. If the subnet contained any locked SOPs or Edit type SOPs, the locked data in those operators would be lost. Now all locked information is preserved by this command. This fix also applies to the Change Type menu item and opchangetype hscript command. Tue. February 18, 2003
Houdini 6.0.215 Fixing a bug where loading the line sop proto install on Linux would make Houdini unstable. Tue. February 18, 2003

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 Eliminated "Softlock" as an unlocking option. Softlocked sops will still load and cook OK. We do not want to encourage anyone to softlock their sops any more. Mon. February 17, 2003
Houdini 6.0.214 Fixed bug in the graph mode of the Channel Editor where if you box selected a channel that has only a single key, it would move exponentially with the mouse movements. Mon. February 17, 2003
Houdini 6.0.214 Fixing a bug where Houdini would not save a hip file if the license server went down. Mon. February 17, 2003
