This important noce, at the heart of many important algorithm is not more backcompabible, pos and volecity force attribute has been removed, and no backup.. Can't open my previous setup with 19.5x.

Sidefx has not used us to do that in the past, knowing how important this could be for our production pipeline, so why?

I still see a Position Force and Velocity Force parameter on POP Interact in 19.5 ..
I'm not sure why you would not be seeing that, perhaps you have a custom version of the HDA that's being used instead?

Hello! Actually you are right, the OTL definition was switching by default to a custom one from the studio.
