Houdini Main Changelogs

Houdini 5.5.5 Added the -u optoin to the opgetinput command. It works in concert with the -o option to let you specify the output index of the output op that you want to find connected to the input op. If this option is not set, or has a negative value, the command behaves as before, returning the first connection to any output index of the output op. Tue. May 28, 2002
