I can't download Houdini Apprentice version from the website (windows) July 5, 2017, 7:01 p.m.

Having the same issue. Houdini Apprentice wasn't connecting to lisencing server, so figured uninstalling Houdini and re-downloading from website + reinstalling would fix. Can't even download from website now - download stops at 700mb and gives me a network error.

Applying custom parameters to expressions in copy stamp May 3, 2017, 5:44 p.m.

did you try to close you expression you are missing a “)”

fit01(rand(stamp(../box1/copy1, copy, 0)+435), ch(../Null1/Parameter1/), (../Null1/Parameter2/))

post your .hip

Even after closing expression and making adjustments mentioned above, it still doesn't seem to want to work?

fit01(rand(stamp(../box1/copy1, copy, 0)+435), ch(../null1/paramater_1/), ch(../null1/parameter_2/))

Applying custom parameters to expressions in copy stamp May 2, 2017, 6:04 p.m.


I am playing around with the various options within the transform tool, and find myself wanting to reference values within the node from elsewhere (i.e a null node with custom float parameter).

Right now, the y.axis transform is: fit01(rand(stamp(“../box1/copy1”, “copy”, 0)+435), -3.5, 3.5)

Pretty self-explanatory expression, transforming a box ‘x’ amount of times (determined by copy stamp) along the x-axis between -3.5 and 3.5.

My question is: how can I use a value from a float parameter in a null node and insert it in the place of ‘-3.5’ and ‘3.5’? Technically I can just change the values within the transform node itself, but for visual clarity I want to be able to input these values within a cleaner interface/ a slider.

I figured it would be something around the lines of:

fit01(rand(stamp(“../box1/copy1”, “copy”, 0)+435), -ch(“../Null1/Parameter1/”), (“../Null1/Parameter2/”)

But this does not seem to work.
