I made a tension map in Houdini to learn more about building my own deformers. The transition from Softimage to Houdini has been painful and lots of fun at the same time.
The first two weeks were hard, but I'm slowly getting the hang of the interface and how to work around some of the selection bugs. I hope the next release will fix some of the old niggles.

Please have a look at the hip file and let me know if I'm doing it the right way.

Thanks
Werner

Looks good to me. First class actually.

Using Rest Attributes and SOPs along with VOP SOPs for the attribute working is how it's done.

Thank-you for a good example file.
There's at least one school like the old school!

Hi Ebonit,

I used Softimage for many years before I moved over to Houdini. Softimage ICE was my tool of choice and when I started with Houdini, I decided to rebuild some of the tools I made way back in Softimage.

There is a wealth of information here and on the odforce forums to get you going. Learn by playing and looking at other people's HDA;s.
