  2. hi, which video was the one covering about STUD UTIL extrude and texture ?

  3. I really need help, when I use the 4.26V2 version of the houdiniUE engine plug-in, I click my subfile button (e.g. Buliding Setting, Doors and Windows..) , they cannot be switched, but the plug-in of 4.26 version can be switched, but I do not want to use the plug-in of 4.26 version due to some bugs, how can I solve this problem?
