Alt key for Viewing in Houdini

We have just released a new Production Build Houdini 12.5.469. Normally I wouldn't announce this outside our forums this but this version has an important new feature.

The Alt key can now used to invoke View tools. Now there will be no more muscle memory issues for Maya artists learning Houdini. The spacebar can also be used so Houdini artists don't have to change existing habits.

The new keystroke is on by default but there is a preference for turning this off altogether if you don't want it.

Houdini 12.5.469 is available for download - http://www.sidefx.com/download or http://www.sidefx.com/apprentice

Thanks Robert This will help when switching back to Houdini after working in Maya for some time. The space-key navigation is good and easy to learn but it is nice to have the space key to other things.

I've learned the spacebar routine, but it is definitely a muscle memory issue when I inadvertently hit the Alt key often.

This is greatly appreciated in that it shows how far SideFX goes in trying to accommodate its user base.

Smart move, alt key is a standard. I alway miss space bar few times when I go Maya/Houdini. Thanks SE!
