building muscles. Feb. 7, 2004, 9:18 a.m.

hey ambient
maybe you could try this, it works for me.
*go into CHOPs and put down a geometryCHOP-
SOP - would be the point1SOP of the null object
Method - animated
Transform object - /obj/null1

*then go into SOPs were you have the magnetSOP and put down a channelSOP after the metaball you are using for magnets. ( i presume this is what you are doing)
CHOP - is the geometryCHOP you just put down
Method - animated
Channel Scope - t
Attribute Scope - P

Now your metaball will follow the null even if it is on a path. after the channelSOP i believe would follow the magnetSOP.

hope this helps…….works for me.

houdini.exe - entry point not found. June 1, 2003, 8 p.m.

i don't know how this started, but now each time i start up houdini i have two messages come up.

1st - HOUDINI.EXE - ENTRY POINT NOT FOUND
“The procedure entry point jpeg_CreateCompress could not be located in the dynamic link library libjpeg.dll.”

2nd - HOUDINI DSO ERROR
“Couldn't load CPROGRA~1/HOUDINI~1.286/houdini/dso/fb/IMG_JPEG.dll.
This is probably because the file was intended to use with a different version of houdini.”

then the houdini console will come up with “Error ”CPROGRA~1/SIDEEF~1/HOUDIN~1.286/houdini/FBoptions": Unknown file format “JPEG” "

this wasn't the case up until about four days ago. i checked for this file and it is where it says it is .
just confused.
anybody understand this?
thanks
