Trying to test out Redshift. Tho having an issue with it.

https://www.redshift3d.com/forums/viewthread/15421/

 

So recap what i did:
1. Downloaded Redshift demo version 2.5.32 from Redshift home page
2. Installed Redshift 2.5.32
3. Went to C:\Users\Tann\Documents\houdini16.0
4. Opened file named as “houdini.env” with notepad
5. Added at the end of it
OUDINI_DSO_ERROR = 2
PATH = “C:/ProgramData/Redshift/bin;$PATH”
HOUDINI_PATH = “C:/ProgramData/Redshift/Plugins/Houdini/16.0.705;&”

6. Saved the file (pressing save buton not save as)
7. Opened Houdini
8. Went in Houdini to “OUT” network
9. Pressed “Tab” key and typed in “Redshift”
and search provides 0 result

I use the same and it works.

#Redshift:
PATH = "C:/ProgramData/Redshift/bin;$PATH"
HOUDINI_PATH = "C:/ProgramData/Redshift/Plugins/Houdini/16.0.705;&"

Check if you have the Redshift toolbar.

Cheers,

Tom

No installation, only a bat file that is used to set up the environment and launch Houdini.

16.5 support is not available yet - maybe in a couple of weeks.
