Reference Vellum Source in DOPImport? Oct. 27, 2018, 3:22 p.m.

MoltenCrazy
Woo! Worked perfectly! Thanks, Tomas.

While I really like the workflow of the new vellum solver and hope to see it in other areas, the Vellum Object / Vellum Source relationship leaves me confused.

Why do we need both? It seems in almost every use I strip the Vellum Object of any specific sim references and rely on the Vellum Source nodes for that. The Vellum Object feels like a container afterthought.

i think another reason for the “Vellum Object” are intial states or continuing a simulations from such.
basically (when you dive in you will see) it is “just” an empty container where DOP Data is attached to.
The sourcing can (and often does) absolutely be done with Vellum Source DOP.
hope this helps

OBJ level python states Oct. 26, 2018, 6:38 a.m.

With build 17.0.375, you can now write python states at the OBJ level.

Check out the attached demo and let us know about any issues.

Thanks!

this is very kool. especially the fact that one can view the hda-code itself. thinking of unlimited ways to create user-defined states and viewport-controls.
