Any news as to when we can expect H16 compatibility? It was released in February, and now it's almost July.

I'm trying out the bridge for the first time in ~6 months, and it looks like I can't even open up a bgeo.sc file because H16 introduced some subtle changes to the file structure.

Maxon needs to have a compatible version out within a week of the H16 release - and keep it updated throughout.

There's also a bug in the current build that C4D uses (15.5.632) that prevents geometry saved in H16 to be opened in 15.5.632, even if H16 is setup correctly using the environment variable that should enable it: “HOUDINI15_5_GEO_COMPATIBILITY = 1”

The recommended fix is to:

1. Save out the Geometry from H16.
2. Open up the geometry in H15.5.717, and save it out again.
3. Open up the geometry in H15.0.633 / use geo in C4D HDA.

It works, but really?

Come on Maxon!

End of May Maxon Tech Support told me: “es ist geplant mit einem Service-Update auch eine an Houdini 16 angepasste Schnittstelle bereitzustellen. Hierzu liegt uns derzeit aber noch kein Zeitplan vor, den ich Ihnen nennen könnte.”
Looks like the current 18.057 update does not contain a bridge to H16
