Hello ,



The contrail tool from the downloadable FX Tools does not work with Houdini 9.1.218.
I get a red flag on the psurf otl and others….


Using H 9.1.218 VC8, windows XP.



thanks,

The problem is with the if() function that was changed slightly (properly I might add). I will run through them all tomorrow.

PM me if you need an immediate work-around.
There's at least one school like the old school!

Hello,


Is it the OTL's causing the fault are is it the newer versions of H9.1?
What can I do to use these tools…



thanks,

Hey Bernard,

The error is with the switch__separate_rest_input Switch SOP found inside /obj/contrail/psurf_disk1/psurf/psurf1

Here's the fix:

Change the expression in the switch__separate_rest_input Switch SOP

From
if(strcmp(opinput(“../”,1), “”) == “”, 0, 1)
to
if(strcmp(opinput(“../”,1), “”) == 0, 0, 1)

Cheers!
