Houdini Documentation Jan. 29, 2003, 4:44 p.m.

Thanks MichaelC - I should have been more patient. SideFX got back to me and confirmed the documentation set is the same as the ‘online’ version, but you can buy it for $300 (which is what it costs SideFX to print).

Houdini Documentation Jan. 28, 2003, 7:13 a.m.

Hi All,

I have e-mailed about this, but almost a week later and I haven't had a reply yet.

Are there any manuals or documentation which come with the full commercial version of Houdini, beyond what is included on the Houdini Apprentice CDs? If so, can the material be obtained independantly of the software, and then if so, for how much? (Hopefully at nominal cost.)


Hemispheres?? Jan. 2, 2003, 8:03 a.m.

Thanks Steven,

Nurbs spheres look better than the others, but I always have trouble with them when it comes to attaching or extruding more geometry - in this case the hemisphere is part of a lampshade which has a flared hole in the top and the bottom edge is folded in 2mm all around. Extruding and smoothing polygons is getting me close, but still it would be nice to have a nurbs surface for the shade.

Is there something special or limiting about nurbs that I should know? (Sorry again if this sounds lazy - I reading as much as I can…)
