I'm using 11.0.466, but to honest I've decided that experimenting with
Dops has been taking too long with not very usable/understandable
results. I've taken up Francois' suggestion and gone down the hand
animated route. Maybe I don't have enough understanding of dops yet to
take full advantage of them. 

I did however manage to do the whole thing without the use of a single
snake....

Cheers

Which version of Houdini were you using?
