Any Tutorials on octahedral impostors Oct. 15, 2018, 11:21 a.m.

Hi there,

Yes, the tutorial video can be found here: []
I need to still create a tutorial page for it, but that video should get you going already.

Every time I update the game tools I have to edit the env file again because the installer removes my Redshift path in the HOUDINI_PATH variable. Is there any way to avoid this?

Could you tell me what version of Houdini and Toolset you are using?
