[Sidefx-houdini-list] Duplicating a curve

Hi Chandra,

Pipe the output of your curve into a Copy SOP, and in the parameters for
the Copy SOP set the Number of Copies to 2, deactivate Transform
Cumulative, and enter the following expressing in the z translate
parameter:

if($CY%2==0,-5,5)

This will assign either a zero or one to each copy, and then translate
based upon that value.

Kind regards,

Phil.

Hi Steve,

I tried that but somehow when I transform in one xform (z axis )it also
has
the same parameter on the other xform.. so weird.

Any clue why its doing that?

Chandra

you could append two transform nodes, and then merge them together?

   curve
_      |            _
|                  |
xform1        xform2
|_                  |
_      |
  merge

Here's hoping the diagram works.
