New Tools
  • Added Extract Silhouette SOP. It will extract the silhouette of the input geometry for the specified axis. Solution by user petz

Updates
  • Added a toggle that allows the PivotPainter node to do automatic UV-Layout for lightmaps.
  • Bumped version of Maps Baker, due to the renaming of the Bake button. (Not to break backwards compatibility) It's now “execute” like the other ROPs

Rop VAT export data different on Linux Houdini vs Windows. Specifically" Rigid", Soft works July 13, 2019, 4:54 p.m.

Hi Greg,

Taking another look at this and the issue is the operating system and rbd rather than the VAT export.
If you run the same hip file on different operating systems you will get different results from the sim. That's just the nature of how bullet works.

However, the resulting VAT files are exporting the correct data for their respective OS's. I ran your hip file on both Mac and Linux, imported the files into UE4 and they both work correctly. Remember you'd have to use different bbox min and max values for each based on what the particular file generates.

If you're still having issues let me know.

Mike

Sorry about the delay. I can confirm that there is a difference but I'm currently travelling. As soon as I'm back in the office next week I'll debug the cause.
