Houdini Main Changelogs

Houdini 4.9.443 Eliminated the "none" solver type from the Inverse Kin CHOP. Thu. August 9, 2001
Houdini 4.9.443 We no longer tilt the homing if viewing in ortho. Thu. August 9, 2001
Houdini 4.9.442 We no longer home the viewport when it's type changes implicitly. We leave it up to the viewstate to do that when the user does it manually. This fixes a bug where the viewmemory button would have to be pressed twice if changing a type as well as the transformation matrix. The side effect is that the first time the user switches to a new type implicitly (e.g. when changing the viewports configuration) they have to home all manually. Wed. August 8, 2001
Houdini 4.9.442 Fixed bug in operator list that made it so that unexposing an operator would not remove it from the list. Subsequently turning on the expose flag for that operator would add a second (or third...) copy of that operator to the list. Wed. August 8, 2001
Houdini 4.9.442 Using tilted homing on the x-axis will now tilt around the correct axis. Wed. August 8, 2001
Houdini 4.9.442 Removed the default hotkey bindings to cplane 'x' 'y' and 'z' because 'x' was conflicting with setting the current viewport. Wed. August 8, 2001
Houdini 4.9.442 Inputs to the Pop SOP will now work correctly when within subnets. Wed. August 8, 2001
Houdini 4.9.442 PolySplit now handles open polygons correctly again. Wed. August 8, 2001
Houdini 4.9.442 Deleting Palette materials no longer core dump. Wed. August 8, 2001
Houdini 4.9.442 Fixed InverseKin CHOP locking bug when manipulating joints of IK bone chains after exiting and re-entering the Bones state. Wed. August 8, 2001
Houdini 4.9.442 PolySplit default snap tolerance changed to 0.05 Wed. August 8, 2001
Houdini 4.9.442 The SOPs using local variables (most notably the Point SOP) now work with velocity, up vectors, and centers of masses properly. Wed. August 8, 2001
Houdini 4.9.442 PolySplit no longer detaches itself from the network if it is done building. Wed. August 8, 2001
Houdini 4.9.442 Fixed bug in PolySplit where cutting through vertices would sometimes miss to consider valid polygons. Wed. August 8, 2001
Houdini 4.9.441 It is now possible to toggle a SOP's highlight flag using the context sensitive menu that pops up when pressing the right mouse over the geometry. Tue. August 7, 2001
Houdini 4.9.441 Viewports no longer use the camera's opengl clearing and fog parameters when not referencing the camera. Tue. August 7, 2001
Houdini 4.9.441 gplay should no longer core on start up. Tue. August 7, 2001
Houdini 4.9.441 Construction plane state can modify floor again! Tue. August 7, 2001
Houdini 4.9.441 Keyboard events are now propogated to the cplane menu so that we can have hotkeys work there too. Tue. August 7, 2001
Houdini 4.9.441 PolyExtrude will reverse the normal of the back primitives if "Output Back" is enabled. Tue. August 7, 2001
Houdini 4.9.441 Fixed bug in PolySplit where we might get caught in an infinite loop. Tue. August 7, 2001
Houdini 4.9.440 It is now possible to switch between footprints and templates using two new options in the sop's viewer menu. Mon. August 6, 2001
Houdini 4.9.437 Invisible handles no longer respond to key presses, unless those key presses affect the visibility of the handle. Thus if you press the hotkey to "Set Keyframes" on handles, keyframes will not be set on invisible handles. Fri. August 3, 2001
Houdini 4.9.437 Using the trail sop to compute velocities of particles should now work without needing a cache sop. Fri. August 3, 2001
Houdini 4.9.437
  • persistent handles can no longer be turned on/off with their handle's hotkey. Much too often, persistents that had been turned off sprang back into action when the user hit 't' for the currently active, non-persistent handle.
  • fix Brush state bug where a hidden persistent handle would steal the mouse events from the brush before the brush had a chance to to anything.
