No. It will be a part of the Modeler(former DM) package

Houdini 17.5 has everything to create a super curve tool
A decent curve workflow should be native to the application considering how often curves are required to do things.

Yes! , when a software costs a couple of thousands of $s .

But , have you tried to build something (on your own and ask for help on both forums) which could help you in so many cases ?

Today, H18 presentation showed a “new Sweep SOP”. something similar i had done myself (without coding or even using the Sweep SOP itself) with Hou11 or H12. cannot remember. I am sure almost every Houdini user has built his own version.

as far as i remember, during a decade present on forums i havent heard so much requests about such a small thing as much as i have read last month (+YT+VIMEO) about a single SOP Node as .. Curve SOP.

Who am i to defend or justify SESI ? No one. But as a forum member i would suggest to solve this issue as in a Houdini forum: Start something > if help is needed ask > people will help.

Something more useful will come out of this. and above all, we all will learn as we do everyday on this forums.

.cheers
except the things that cannot be seen , nothing is like it seems .

The counter argument is that every new modelling tool in H18, et al, is from forum discussions. Chicken or egg eh?


In regard to forum noise for sops, at H13/14 timeframe there was huge discussion for individual sops.

The next goal is an effective curve tool based on python states.


free tool?

I think, when it will be finished, I will upload it as a free tool

FWIW, I posted a cheapo python script that helps make the Curve tool a bit cooler here:
