Modeling primarily in Houdini Jan. 31, 2019, 12:43 p.m.

i was max user for easy 15 years but a tool to “blocking out” a classics way of max modelling you can do that know with radial menus
but not what Houdini is a bout is about procedural modelling if you max user you trying find tools help you model just like max then your use-sing the wrong program use max.

in max i used to do model a part of model then make copy pasted into new layer then work on that then copy past that into new layer then work on that so could have 12 - 14 layers each part of the model i had progress i save each progression into each layer

so when the lead designer (my boss)he says “i like it in layer 8 but (You Were Only Supposed To Blow The Bloody Doors Off) sorry for joke”

any way you get the idea

so go back and start from layer 8 then copy pasted that in new layer work on layer 9 and so on

every 30 mins or so would make new copy of pasted in new layer work on so (ofc i would hide each of the layers i was not working on)

but not with Houdini more you think about what needs to be done before you start to model more you get out of Houdini
say the lead designer before he would say I want “5 chimney's” now i just make small hda were i can set the height and the width
even stone shape of each brick the jobs done later down the road i can still pull up the hda and change it

with Houdini more you think procedural-ism less work you do.

plz sidefx never ever lose you procedural work flow. then it would not be Houdini…!!!!

aut0de$k (sorry for my foul language) clears his throat,
bought up that company who made CAT plugin then in incorporated into m.a.x did minor updates with it for about 2 year then left it to rot in side of m.a.x CAT had such huge potential (this years ago when they bought it) what a shame.
