Houdini 19.0 Nodes VOP nodes

Map Point VOP node

Creates a dictionary that maps one KineFX point to another.

On this page
Since 18.5

Creates a dictionary in the following format that can be consumed downstream to create relationships between pairs of points.

{
    'reference': string, // The point attribute on the driver skeleton to use as reference. If set to "ptnum", the point number will be used.
    'value': string or int // The value of the point attribute on the point to use as the driver.
}

You can bind the output dictionary to an attribute using the Bind or Set Attribute VOP nodes.
