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.

Bundle chooser in Mantra ROP not displaying predefined bundles Feb. 5, 2018, 9 a.m.

It's always been this way. In my experience, nobody uses bundles.

We do use bundles and smart bundles quite extensively and we're glad they are there

Have fun
