H2A (houdini to arnold ass file exporter)

You can compile or grab the compiled plug-in from:


P.s. please excuse my sloppy c style :)

Thanks for H2A!


Could you maybe expand the functionallity in a way that it is possible to run the .ass export in the background. Like e.g. the file cache has the ability 'save in background'.

Would come in very handy since I got tons of exports to do.
