Playback during file cache? Dec. 28, 2020, 8:07 p.m.

just read the output with a second houdini instance

Houini bezier curves, are not bezier?? Dec. 14, 2019, 12:26 a.m.

But to create a curve the ‘handles’ are required.

Also, it's rare that anyone, no matter what program they use, to get the desired curve with the initial lay down.

There has to be some moving of the anchor points and/or handle points to get the final curve one is satisfied with.

Sure editing and adjustments to the curve should be possible and should be easy and intuitive…
I will record a tutorial to show how i go about it in different scenarios. Will be published early next year.

Houini bezier curves, are not bezier?? Dec. 13, 2019, 6:25 p.m.

I am actually not talking about editing bezier curves with the “handles”.
I was talking about creating curves (also bezier but also poly) in general.

I was serious about wanting to know what kind of curves/profiles you want to create/draw and struggle to do so in houdini.
Please, please send me examples. Is it more technical or more organic? Is it floor plans? Or logos typo? Or profiles? 2D or 3D?
Please give me a challenge!

I am currently working on a font/curve optimization tutorial. see screenshot: top is the input and below is the optimized version.
