Camera pan with a "look at" constraint Oct. 29, 2018, 10:24 a.m.

Ondrej
Houdini 17 will have a new option to continuously export the view changes to the camera so you don't get that snapping back to your camera interest on mouse release. This option effectively just applies the constraint after each processed mouse motion to give a smooth motion. I don't know whether this specifically addresses your particular problem, but I thought I'd mention it.

Hello Ondrej,

did this ever make it into H17? If so, I have a hard time finding it.

Thank you
Andy

How remove letters from end of a string ? April 2, 2018, 7:36 a.m.

Hi,

please have a look at the string manipulation functions in the docs. In your case http://www.sidefx.com/docs/houdini/vex/functions/rstrip.html [www.sidefx.com]
Note the related functions at the bottom of that page.

Edit:

Here's some further info: http://www.sidefx.com/docs/houdini/vex/strings.html [www.sidefx.com]

string a_string = "hello world!";
string thirdbyte = a_string[:-3];

result: hello wor

Hope this helps

quicktime movie export? March 18, 2018, 8:28 a.m.

Yes, for something quick to post to Slack or email it is much more convenient to have a QT file instead of a sequence that needs to be converted.

Also, let us not assume that everybody knows how to use the tools for the conversions. My animators will give me a stinky stare if I told them to use ffmpeg in a shell.

It used to work in MPlay and it was useful. I'd rather see it fixed than deprecated.

Thank you and have a great sunday.
Andy
