Houdini Main Changelogs

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
Houdini 6.0.211 Fixed bug in the code to convert absolute node references to relative node references when saving an operator definition from the Type Properties dialog. Fri. February 14, 2003
Houdini 6.0.211 If the embedded operator type library and another external operator type library both have definitions for the same operator, and both have the same time stamp, preference would be given to the definition in the embedded library (even if the "Give Preference to Definitions Save in Hip File" option is turned off). Now in that situation, preference is given to the definition in the external library file. Fri. February 14, 2003
Houdini 6.0.211 Fixed crash when clicking on the Jump button of the Node parameter in the Export CHOP. Fri. February 14, 2003
Houdini 6.0.210 Fixed bug where doing a chrename hscript command on a channel scoped in the channel editor would cause the channel to lose its scope. Thu. February 13, 2003
Houdini 6.0.210 Fixed a window resize bug in mplay when any bars were stowed or unstowed, or the views were split. Mplay would shrink to a very small size. Thu. February 13, 2003
Houdini 6.0.210 When using 'mplay stdin' the -k and -K options (listen for renders/flipbooks) are ignored. This allows OpenGL renders to proceed when another mplay is listening to renders. Thu. February 13, 2003
Houdini 6.0.210 Fixed a problem with COPs handles getting 'stuck' in interactive low-res mode when the handle was released. Thu. February 13, 2003
Houdini 6.0.210 Made sure the balloon help tag settings were restored properly from the preference file. Thu. February 13, 2003
Houdini 6.0.210 The Fetch Object now uses the Dynamic Path gadget to select its source rather than the popup menus. This allows the easy use of relative paths. Thu. February 13, 2003
Houdini 6.0.210 The built-in multiline text editors (such as those in the View Code or Type Properties::Help), along with the textport, have expanded functionality. You can now select multiple lines, and using Shift+Direction allows you to create and expand selections, which can be deleted in the expected fashion. Clicking on the last line of the textport, or anywhere in the text editor, will set the cursor to that position. Thu. February 13, 2003
Houdini 6.0.210 Fixed the window positioning code on Linux so it not only contrains the window size to your desktop resolution, but also ensures that it is positioned entirely on the screen. This was most obvious in mplay when adapting the window size to an image larger than the desktop. Thu. February 13, 2003
Houdini 6.0.210 Fixed a problem under Windows where vcc would print out incorrect line numbers when reporting error messages from vcc. Also fixed a problem where errors with pragma directives would not display the correct source code with the rror message. Thu. February 13, 2003
Houdini 6.0.210 Fixed a problem with mantra that could result in mantra not shutting down properly under Windows if mplay was shut down or terminated a connection to mantra mid-render. Thu. February 13, 2003
Houdini 6.0.209 Added a File menu item to refresh all operator type libraries from disk. Wed. February 12, 2003
Houdini 6.0.209 Fixed bug where if the user had a window with active focus partially obscuring the graph mode in the channel editor and then left-clicked on the channel editor's graph, it would be erased in gray and not be redrawn. Wed. February 12, 2003
Houdini 6.0.209 When selecting objects, the Ctrl+middle mouse click on an object will now run the object's select script. Wed. February 12, 2003
Houdini 6.0.209 Software emulation fix for viewing a component greater than the number of components actually in the raster. The bug would cause an apparent shift of 1 pixel in the raster. Wed. February 12, 2003
