Should I start learning Houdini 19.5 now or wait for v20 to start? Will v20 be that much different in regards to learning curve or workflow?

The core concept won't change. You will invest enough time and brain cells to understand houdini. Just start and learn and enjoy the coming H20 as the upcoming playground

Are you sure? I can’t tell from the sneak peek that they ported over the viewport to Vulcan.

My biggest hope is that Karma XPU is far more responsive than now in Beta, if you make changes in the shader tree it‘s so slow updating.
And I also hope they updated their geo paint tools för environment dressing.

Feathers look very nice but I‘m afraid I won‘t use them.

But I‘m excited that we might know more next week.

Does Gold mean production ready?

ML skinning sounds exciting , I really hope there are plans for a nice ML framework to use all kinds of models.

edit: based on "And a foundational SOP & TOP toolset for Machine Learning using ONNX" it seems to be happening.

What do you mean by outdated? 🤔
I like the UI, it's simple, to the point, no flashy gimmicks that slow things down! 😉
