Hi all,

Just a curious question:

Is it possible to open a obj/shop node in a second window/pane automatically?
Imagen the SI material manager, you select a material in your top list, and it will open in the pane below.

Can one mimic this behavior somehow in Houdini? All this jumping in and out of nodes is ….. annoying…. ;-)

cheers!

Not the same, but still a bit faster than double clicking: I'm using expanded tree view. If something inside node is selected in tree view, H jumps into appropriate network. At least, allows to go directly from one to another network, without opening and closing.

Had the same problem and still have it to some degree. I can't figure out yet if it's me or Houdini. Maybe I'm not used to it yet and it will get better as I become more experienced, but I wouldn't be shocked to find that in fact Softimage is simply better with the scene management. Time will tell.
