Houdini 16.0.561 Fix bug where animated ramp parameters on VEX/VOP related nodes failed to flag their owner node as time dependent. yesterday
Houdini 16.0.558 The dialog script for VOPs now supports syntax for defining custom tags for node inputs and outputs. Eg, inputtag { input_name tag_name tag_value } The tags can be queried thru hou.VopNodeType.inputTags(). Fri. March 24, 2017
Houdini 16.0.558 Fixed a bug where Houdini crashed when trying to scroll the contents of a Key-Value Dictionary parameter using the mouse wheel. Fri. March 24, 2017
Houdini 16.0.558 Fix incorrect IK solutions when the root bone has translations. Fri. March 24, 2017
Houdini 16.0.558 Added a `kwargs` dictionary to the context of the Key-Value Dictionary parameter's Chooser Callback script. The dictionary contains the parameter and its owning node. Fri. March 24, 2017
Houdini 16.0.558 Fixed the bug in stochastic path cutoff where "Cutoff Threshold" was ignored under "Probability" cutoff method. Fri. March 24, 2017
Houdini 16.0.557 Fixed python error when creating a Simple Blend Constraints with multiple targets. It now creates a proportional one if more than one target is selected. Constraint Networks are now created using a rate driven by an expression. The constraints and generic creation scripts now look for a "chopnet_rate" parameter and will install an expression on it if it is found. This means all the new nodes will also inherit the expression automatically. Also, to fix motion blur issues, a new global animation option has been added. It can be referenced in expressions with $CHOPMOTIONSAMPLES and it acts as a multiplier on the $FPS in the "chopnet_rate" expression. Thu. March 23, 2017
Houdini 16.0.557 Added split support to hou.Pane. It's now possible to minimize/maximize splits and set the split fractions.$ Thu. March 23, 2017
Houdini 16.0.557 Use 'kwargs' for the (before|after) script parameters instead of 'argv'. kwargs['file'] is the file being saved. kwargs['autosave'] is True only if the save is triggered by auto save timer. (for kwargs['success'] is True if the save was successful. Thu. March 23, 2017
Houdini 16.0.557 Fixed bug with moving a wire while zoomed out that prevented changing just the input or output of the wire, and instead only allowed wiring through a node. Thu. March 23, 2017
