Import Attribute VOP, Add Attribute VOP and Bind VOP

Import Attribute VOP, Add Attribute VOP and Bind VOP

The Houdini documentation is really good. However, there are times when the explanation for certain things are a bit too technical for my brain to compute. As an example, while learning VOPS, I was confused on the differences and the usage between the Import Attribute VOP, Add Attribute VOP and Bind VOP. It seemed like they were doing similar things but I was not exactly sure. Also, if they were similar nodes, in what context do you use each one?

What the VOP?

As luck would have it, I found another golden nugget of knowledge by Mr. Jeff Wagner. He concisely explains the differences between the VOPS and what each node is best suited for. Now this made sense to me! The may point I took away is use the Bind VOP. Have a look at the post over at the odforums and bind away with confidence.
