  1. Running py code on frame change?

    Thanks guys. I will try the suggestions.
  2. Running py code on frame change?

    edward I want to invoke some stuff in img context per frame.
  3. Running py code on frame change?

    Hi I want to be able to run python code on each frame if and only a certain node is selected. I assume this must be a hou.session thing but the my hou.session scripts do not run on each frame if I am seeing it correctly. They are just some globally acccesed code. Basically I am looking for a frame change hook that runs in the session. thanks
  4. Houdini stopped loading objs gives error

    @Atom Thanks for the reply. Actually it was none of those things. I had to move the Houdini program folder to a network drive due to space left on my system drive but it looked like Houdini did not like that at least certain Houdini executables did not.
  5. Hi The file node is refusing to load .objs ;( It keeps saying that it is unable to read the file. I tried many many objs and I get the same results meanwhile other apps like Modo or Zbrush have no problem with these objs. In fact I was able to load these files just couple hours ago in Houdini as inside my Houdini project files. I have no idea about what happened ;(
  6. See what is going on in Python?

    Hi I kind of remember that there was a way to see the current operations in the stream in Python script but I cant locate that in the documents. Is there a way to see to see what is happening under the hood in Python streams like Mel in Maya? thanks
  7. Forcing file load via Python

    @Atom That was very helpful thank you so much. That helped me out with ironing out couple other issues as well.
  8. Forcing file load via Python

    Hi I create a small python script in the filename entry to load my files. The python code returns the correct file name and path in the filename box. It is all good. But the problem is that I cant get it to load files automatically as the frame advances. I ahve to manually press "reload sequence" on every frame. Please bear in mind that the file names are generated at each frame by reading file names in certain folders so there is no pregenerated file scheme. I tried hou.iu.triggerUpdate but that did not do anything. I also tried the to eval the Reload sequence parm which is reload. That did not work either. I am hoping that someone here might have a better suggestion to get the reload going. Because as of now I cant render. Render out or Rop out does not work because it is not loading the files ;(
