Hello!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sDDruhbcEAk [www.youtube.com]
I'm trying to follow this presentation, and Luis says the tool “trace PSD file” is available in the Game Dev Tools, but it's not. I even updated to build 309 (latest).
Any idea?

Does anyone know where are all those tools?
I only see small portion of them in the shelf.

The are in the geometry “TAB Menu” under the folder GameDev(H17) or Labs(H18).
The shelf is somehow limited to 1920px width…

I'm sorry but I can't find any element you've mentioned, would you mind sharing a screenshot with annotation? That would help me greatly (I'm using Houdini 18 apprentice).
Thanks!

The Sop your looking is there.

With mouse in network - TAB > Labs > Import > Labs Trace PSD File(beta)

Or if you want. Right click on empty space of the Labs shelf and “Edit Shelf Tab…” add the trace psd to your shelf.

Thanks for trying to help, but again I can't find it.
In the tab menu > labs, there are only 3 options (fire presets, impostor camera rig and LOD hierarchy) and no subfolder.

I was able to find it in the edit shelf tab, but it looks I should find it in the tab menu as well?

I don't know…I'm using production build 297 and under TAB I have many options (more than the 3 you mention).

I'm using Houdini 18.0.287 , and it was installed on 2 different computers in 2 different places.
Maybe the problem is related to this version of Houdini.

Those 3 Labs options you mention in the tab menu are at Object level. The tool you are looking for is in Geometry level. (ie. add a geometry node and go inside that)
