That will be nice ,to insert more user firendly workflow in houdini .
I am a Softimage user and because of retirement of Softimage i no longer invest in it,but as user of SI i never see an environment so fast in doing things.
For a few days for now i evaluate Houdini workflow to see it is fit to my flow and i find it amazing at some points ,but in polymodeling tools are now lack of useful tools and i hope that will change soon enough.
So, no ADSK stuff,make in money from such tools is not wrong ,but when it comes to do things in a wall street style( only money cont) , this is not right way.
So put some love in your tool and i guarantee you will grow fast now,
