I'd give the H9 one another go. I find it has improved over H8.
Also the trick in H8 was to turn up the equalise edges parameter beyond the 
default range of one. Try 10 or even 100.

I have a 6000x8000 regular terrain grid that I'd like to intelligently
reduce to various levels-of-detail (1000k, 500k, 250k, 100k
triangles).  The polygon reduction in Houdini has - in my experience -
never been particularly impressive.   That's a shame, because lots of
other packages like PolyWorks, NuGraph, PolygonCruncher for Max have
obviously solved the problem procedurally.  Or am I just doing it
wrong ...  And if not Houdini, and not wanting to buy yet-another-
package, what options are there?  Are there companies around that will
do mesh optimization?

Cheers,
Darran.
