blubbmediavuxA decent curve workflow should be native to the application considering how often curves are required to do things.
Houdini 17.5 has everything to create a super curve tool
Yes! , when a software costs a couple of thousands of $s .
But , have you tried to build something (on your own and ask for help on both forums) which could help you in so many cases ?
Today, H18 presentation showed a “new Sweep SOP”. something similar i had done myself (without coding or even using the Sweep SOP itself) with Hou11 or H12. cannot remember. I am sure almost every Houdini user has built his own version.
as far as i remember, during a decade present on forums i havent heard so much requests about such a small thing as much as i have read last month (+YT+VIMEO) about a single SOP Node as .. Curve SOP.
Who am i to defend or justify SESI ? No one. But as a forum member i would suggest to solve this issue as in a Houdini forum: Start something > if help is needed ask > people will help.
Something more useful will come out of this. and above all, we all will learn as we do everyday on this forums.
