render all takes? March 17, 2012, 7:36 a.m.

I nest takes into a parent take, and then use a Wedge ROP on the parent take, which renders the children.

Something Bugg(y)s Me Feb. 27, 2012, 3:27 p.m.

@Swann: this is great modelling. I'd like to ask what sort of approach do you do when you chamfer surfaces together? Do those pieces even share the same topology? And how procedural do you get?

For example, in a hard-surface model I was making, I use a lot of cookies to find the creases, and use an HDA to create a crude kind of chamfer. Procedurally, this worked well because I could always move the pieces and the chamfer would move along with it.

Last question: do you use NURBS at all?

hou method for instancepoint? Feb. 15, 2012, 3:55 a.m.

To add: there are some instances (no pun intended) where instancepoint() (and I think it is in the context of hou.hscriptExpression()) where it returns a -1 or None, and so it seems like a sanity check is necessary for places such as accessing indices from an array/tuple/list.

This doesn't seem to crop up when hscript instancepoint() is used directly.
