  1. OpenPort and communicate via Python (Socket)

    Hey guys, I saw there is a hscript command ‘openport’, but I didn't find example on how to communicate with houdini via python. Here's what I need to do: 1-Open a port, from localHost, within houdini session. 2-From an external python interpreter, execute houdini python commands, using local port. IE: hou.node('/obj').createNode('geo') Here's how I can do this in maya: 1-cmds.commandPort(name='localhost:7555') 2- client = socket.socket(socket.AF_INET, socket.SOCK_STREAM) client.connect(('127.0.0.1', 7555)) c = ‘python(“cmds.polySphere()”);’ client.send(c) Does anyone know if it's possible to this in houdini? Anyone has some examples? Thanks Jonathan
  2. Hello Houdini's and Arny's Sorry my company uses windows . Could you please help me, I try to set up the port for HtoA to look for a solidangle_LICENCE and what ever I do inside Houdini my environment variables are ignored or overwritten. (Please see the image attached) I would be very grateful if someone here could point me into the right direction of setting this variable for good. Thank You very much in advance, Burns htoa_license_diagnostics.txt
  3. Hi All, I have a bunch of cached volumes running through a for each. When i middle mouse over it i can't see the whole list, naturally because it would take more of the screen. I am aware i can open the extended information box and go to the volume resolution section to see the list. Is there a way to see this information in the text port or in the python shell. My thinking was if i navigate in the textport to the foreach i could do something from there. Any ideas Thanks Saqib
