Hi All,

I am following the quick start tutorial (http://vimeo.com/16544171) [vimeo.com] that shows how to make a bunch of columns and knock them down.

I have built my column, but when I go to File Export there is no option of OBJ?

Do I have to combine the node network into a single object?

How do I export a complex object out of Houdini Apprentice?

Thanks

The easiest way to export OBJ from SOPs is to RMB on any sop node, then “Save Geometry…” and specify *.obj name.

These are basics, you should go through some more tutorials before starting project with it

cheer,

Thanks for the info. I am still learning the terms.

Assume I have a new scene and I added a Box to the scene.
A geometry node appears. Is that a SOP node?

If so, I do not see any export option when I right-click on it.

Really, you turn your life into a nightmare attempting Houdini and not knowing which node is a SOP node. Go ahead:

watch something, then ask questions!
