[Sidefx-houdini-list] Get chop valueness

Try chop(string channel) Or chopf or chopt if you want the value at a particular time -----Original Message----- From: Jason Lam [mailto:jason at mindfloss.com.au] Sent: 20 April 2006 17:09 To: sidefx-houdini-list at sidefx.com Subject: [Sidefx-houdini-list] Get chop valueness Hey dudes Thanks all for your help, I have yet another question Basically I want you to be able to walk up to a character, trigger it to perform say frames 1 - 150 of an animation, and then the next time it'll go do the next lot etc. I coould do it with a switch chop and have each clip loaded in sepereately, but I thought I could have it on one mega long sequence, and then play segments of it. So... I want to access the value of a count chop in a script so I can do nifty things based on how many times a given event has happened. So I figure I'll have a logic chop watching my count chop and then in the script I need to query the value of count and on various event numbers I would change the start and end of another count chop which fed into my lookup chop. Actually no I write it out it does seem kind of silly. Anyways, I'm sure it'll be handy to know, so if you could enlighten me as to how to acces the value of a chop that'd be tops. I did try chls which didn't seem to list the count channel for some reason, and ch("/ch/ch1/count3/count/") didn't work either.
