Just keep putting in RFEs [www.sidefx.com].

Or make a comparison video of other curve tools in other packages… shame is a good motivator too

Houdini 18.5 Sneak Peak Oct. 20, 2020, 11:28 a.m.

I could not agree more.

From what i have seen, SESI attack a problem multiple times before settling on a robust version that is optimized with each release.

I can see from keynote the animation tools in 18.5 are obviously just the beginning, and its a foundational release in terms of dealing with animation/rigs on a large scale and technical requirements.

To me it looks like 19 will have the a rigging context and animation ux upgrade, animators usually just want solid easy to pick handles, sliders, intuitive animation curves, selecting/moving keys etc. But making that first means nothing without a good foundation.

IMO animation and rigging is the only thing keeping a lot of studios using it. I hope SESI plan to bringing in character animators to beta and alpha test their stuff.

Very interesting times, cant wait to see what you guys cook up. And im looking forward to trying out 18.5…. 10 secs from finishing downloading.
