Re: Mops Delay wont work

Hey there, The issue here is that MOPs Delay can only delay the transformation of packed primitives, the time index of packed sequences, or the individual points of an animated polygon mesh. You're trying to delay animation that's been done in SOPs and *then* packed by the Instancer, and MOPs Delay ...

Re: Looping Noise Modifier

Yep, that sounds right. I think those noise functions don't accept a fourth input. Glad to hear it's working!

Re: Looping Noise Modifier

Just to be certain, did you download the latest experimental build? You need to either switch from the master branch to the experimental branch on GitHub, or use the MOPs Updater shelf tool to grab the Experimental branch. It should be v1.1.18.

Re: Looping Noise Modifier

If you enable "Time Varying" on the Noise Falloff or Noise Modifier, there should be a parameter enabled called "Looping Noise". You can then set the Period parameter to determine how many seconds it takes for a full cycle.

Re: Looping Noise Modifier

Anytime! Let me know if it works for you; I haven't really tested the hell out of it just yet but as long as you don't animate the Offset parameters of the noise, it should loop seamlessly for any noise that supports 4-dimensional inputs (most of them aside from sparse convolution I think?)

Re: Error with Reorient

Hello,

I probably need to make the error a little more descriptive. The problem is that the sphere that you're trying to transfer an orientation from, does not have an orient attribute. Try wiring a MOPs Orient Mesh onto the sphere before connecting it to MOPs Reorient.

Re: Looping Noise Modifier

I just added preliminary support for looping noise in the latest Experimental build:
https://github.com/toadstorm/MOPS/releases/tag/v1.1.18e

Feel free to give it a shot if you don't want to do it manually.

Re: Looping Noise Modifier

Hey Mike, Looping noise is definitely possible... what you want are two identical copies of the same noise operation, offset in time. You then ping-pong back and forth on the "weight" between the two noise patterns so that noise2, which is time offset by say, four seconds, has a weight of 1.0 at fou...

Re: MOPs_Relax_Modifier

This is an oversight; I've just rewritten that part of the node to estimate the scale of each instance by finding the largest bounding box axis. There's also now an option to specify which bounding box axis determines the point scale, for very oblong instances. These updates are in the `henry_dev` b...

Re: Point @orient flipping with mops_aim & mops_shape_falloff

I think this is standard Houdini behavior... the state of the objects doesn't update reliably inside SOP solvers. I don't think it's something I can patch out, unfortunately.
