So ready!

When does SESI usually put up the new version download? Midnight at the SESI corporate location? Midnight in GMT? Or the morning?

My guess is will be more in the afternoon given that the day before is a holiday. However, I'm frequently wrong so YMMV.

I only miss one features in the stream of yesterday. In the Houdini Roadmap Presentation at SIGGRAPH 2016, at the end of the video he said something about having an output preview of each node inside the Shader building. However, in the presentation refers to a previwe indide the nodes of a COPs Network… It would be awesome to have some preview similar to Substance Designer.

Unfortunately we didn't have time to get the shader preview working as smoothly/quickly as we wanted, so we decided it was best to just leave it out for now. COPs are currently the only nodes that can support previews.


I thought I was the only one wondering about those shader previews being absent from the release. This was disappointing, so I do hope you guys don't decide to drop the idea altogether. The things is, I would like to use Houdini instead of SDesigner if possible, but those previews are important.
I Understand that this is a huge undertaking though and at least we have the new network editor now - and it's awesome. I love the previews in COPs, so I'm glad we got that - was a bit of a surprise because you guys have been quiet on the compositing front. (by the way, a video editor / finishing in Houdini would be awesome - even if its simple at first, I don't want to use 100 different applications). Sculpting and texture painting tools for H17? Pwetty plweeez?

Good job on H16, it's awesome. Cheers!

Took off work for 2 days for this…..

It's a good thing web page refreshes dont cost money….

I'll create free tutorial content if you let Indie on Beta SESI.

Probably not a great idea. If we all sit here and hit refresh on the SideFx.com website then this is essentially the same thing as a “denial of service” attack. This is what took down Sony and others recently by hackers.

I realize it's a stretch but I don't think any of us know how many people are anxiously awaiting for Houdini 16 or how robust the hosting services are at SideFX lol.

Patience is probably better than a broken SideFX website.

On another note…..

Can anyone tell me if we are able to up res particles at render time in H16? I found a couple of “workarounds” from a couple years ago but those were really overkill and wonky solutions.

If it makes it easier for you - and for our servers we'll be posting on FB/Twit as soon as H16 is live. We're aiming for 12p EST… but no promises! …we want everything smooth so are making sure the CDN is ready to go…

Cheers, Chris
