Hi everyone,

I'm rolling out a series of "Houdini Shorts" not just on YouTube but also on TikTok, Twitter, and other platforms like LinkedIn. These videos will provide additional Houdini tips, tricks, and sometimes a sneak peek into my in-depth advanced content like Pragmatic VEX course(s).

Feel free to subscribe/follow for more updates.

Hope you find these useful, and as always thanks for watching!

I'm not quite clear on this. Are you recommending splitting complex code into multiple wrangles for performance or readability?


Regarding performance: Splitting a block of code into multiple wrangles forces you to save data to attributes, which are then read by the following wrangle. Doesn't this approach cause overhead compared to keeping all data in memory in a single wrangle?

It's short format videos for quick tips. There are quite a few people making these as they are orders of magnitude faster to produce than full length videos while still being useful.

It's on a case by case basis. For example when implementing some algorithm like point cloud fitting, doing it all in 1 wrangle is extremely inefficient, but also forces you to use detail run over mode.

For saving attributes it also depends. If you save the attributes on the current elements using the @ syntax, the overhead should be minimal. But sometimes even using setpointattrib, setprimattrib, etc functions is worth it if you can parallelize the next steps. Ultimately you have to profile and see if you gain performance doing this vs not and how much more complicated the setup becomes vs the speed gains.
