Expression Short Circuiting Dec. 26, 2022, 2:23 p.m.

You are correct that VEX doesn't short circuit. I can't say we are happy with that, as it is very useful and expected to short circuit. I'd say we want to reserve the right to fix this some day, so please do not write code that requires us to not short circuit in the meantime.

Houdini recalculating every node when just pressing "save" Nov. 28, 2022, 9:18 p.m.

Thank you for the file. We can reproduce that, and it does seem very suspicious.

I've submitted a bug with internal tracking number 125726.

Thank you for reporting this!

Houdini 19 Visualize SOP Oct. 28, 2021, 4:50 p.m.

What's up with the Visualize SOP tho?

It's become more focused on setting up the various magic attributes to control visualization, rather than being a node to add visualizers.

Gear icon on the Top Right, Add Visualizer, Add Color Visualizer. This will get you the node-level visualizer it had by default before.

For the visualization to pass down-stream from the SOP you can click the "Update Visualizers" toggle. This will bake the visualizer into an attribute so any node down-stream will also visualize, useful if you are exporting this as another View Output from an HDA.

The actual code has stayed the same, it is the defaults we've changed.
