When there are functions missing please make a RFE, the next big task are surly karma (lops) and character animation. It would be intressting if chop's get's a bigger update.

Btw. USD based NLE / compositing would be intressting

Houdini 18 launch event live? Nov. 5, 2019, 7:09 a.m.

Houdini 18 release date? Oct. 13, 2019, 11:34 a.m.

Don't you think they will do a launch event like the PDG one? Solaris seems as an important feature as PDG for the future foundations of Houdini…
In my opinion, Solaris is much more important than PDG, the development of PDG is somehow a little slow and still in an early stage. I hope the Solaris will be a more complete product.
That's part of my point. I don't think they will release H18 without a big presentation H17.5 style. And there's no appointment for that on the next weeks so I don't think we're near the release date. On the other side, I'm sure big clients have already been playing with Solaris for a long time so who knows what SideFx plans are…

There will be a presentation about how a big studio(Animal Logic) integrate solaris in there pipeline:

Solaris: A Production Retrospective []

If they release before siggraph asia they have still got time.
Hope we hear a date in the next 2 weeks.
