Can you change the camera Dolly speed in viewports? April 23, 2021, 3:07 a.m.

Also if you move the viewport by mistake which happens a LOT now, can you undo that? In Max I could press shift Z and it would undo a rotation.

Hi Andreas, how are you man?

No you can't undo viewport actions like in Max. I have asked for this for a long time but one of these I might find some time to implement it myself.

I'm not sure how something can happen by mistake, but tumbling doesn't count as an action in Houdini since it doesn't affect the scene and is not saved to file. Since it's not an action it can't be undone. It would be terrible to have every tumble fill up the undo buffer.

In Max viewport actions are kept in a separate buffer that doesn't affect the scene action buffer, so you can undo/redo each independently.

is this tool in your patreon for H18.5 ?

Thank you..

Hi it's but I have to update it regularly because it gets updated almost daily sometimes. Also some builds of H18.5 have certain qt issues on some OSes. Even graphics drivers can make a big difference, but this is qt.

Otherwise it's all good. And the system is open to make custom changes to any part but it could take some effort depending on the person's python/qt skill levels.

How to draw text in the viewport regardless of viewer state? March 28, 2021, 1:37 a.m.

Thanks a lot! But a python state can always persists? Would another state override it?

In Python SOP I can not test this?

I tried your code:

It did register it but I didnt see any texts in the viewport.
