View Full Version : Welcome to the new Side Effects Houdini forum

01 January 2003, 12:06 AM
With the rapid interest of The Houdini family of products and especially the ever popular "The Houdini Apprentice Challenge" I thought it a good time as any to introduce this new forum to all the students and professionals in the industry. This is for anyone who wishes to collaborate on this amazing product.

We hope you find use to this new addition.

Yes, I'd have to agree. About time :)

Thanks guys.

BTW, speaking of the apprentice challenge. If anyone wishes to post any WIP's, we have a bit of a forum over at odforce ( to get crits and comments.

So anyone who's joining the challenge, come on over and show us what you're made of ;)

I'll just cut'n'paste a question that I posted over at
odForum so more ppl might answer, thanx :) :

Hi, I was wondering if any of you guys would have hkeys configured such to match Mayas? (ie. change to 4 view viewport through tapping space instead of space+t etc.)? Also are houdini's keyboard/mouse bindings for camera manipulations hard coded as in Maya or can they be customized? If so does anyone have a config scrit for Maya-like workfow? (im sure studios use this approach for Maya users in Houdini-only shops if it can be done at all).


p.s. please don't start a "my proggie is more intuitive than yours so learn its hkeys and workflow" thing I'm just trying to get into houdini as fast as possible
