One more thing about bad UI, it seems like everything about “Curve” is hard to use in Houdini.

I've reported a ref for better curve tool several weeks ago but with no further report(except for the auto report email). The curve tool in Houdini really sucks, compared to C4D.

Is "SideFX Houdini" a complete 3D software, or just an advanced FX package ? Sept. 10, 2019, 9:31 p.m.

It's not so complete, for now. While it's very advanced in some aspects but really lacks some very basic functions.

That’s exactly what I was thinking.
It's very complicated in most cases and you always should pay attention to what’s under the hood.

It's just like when you create a good function HDA to procedurally generate some complex geometry with input curve. And when you start to use the HDA to do real work, you find the Curve Node is so hard to use, it even can't select/move multiple points once a time. It's just how Houdini makes me feel, there're indeed very great functions which other DCCs doesn't have, but some basic functions in Houdini really sucks.
