how to configure QLIB and AELIB at the same time in the houdini.env file and that work well

Recommended Posts

Good afternoon, first of all, all the members of this great page receive a cordial greeting. Sincerely, I have learned a lot here. This page is great and I am very happy to have found it.

I have a problem to configure two plugins or HDA would not know how to tell them finally the plugins in question are

AELIB and QLIB the problem is that when I configure the file HOUDINI .ENV to start the 2 only works one the other stops working automatically my configuration is the following please someone to guide me to solve the problem please

HOUDINI_PATH = C: \ Users \ jcmusashi \ Documents \ houdini16.5 \ PLUGINS HOUDINI FX \ GameDevelopmentToolset-Development; &

QLIB = C: \ Users \ jcmusashi \ Documents \ houdini16.5 \ PLUGINS HOUDINI FX \ qLib-master
QOTL = $ QLIB / otls

HOUDINI_OTLSCAN_PATH = $ QOTL / base; $ QOTL / future; $ QOTL / experimental; @ / otls
HOUDINI_GALLERY_PATH = $ QLIB / gallery; @ / gallery
HOUDINI_TOOLBAR_PATH = $ QLIB / toolbar; @ / toolbar
HOUDINI_SCRIPT_PATH = $ QLIB / scripts; @ / scripts

AELIB = C: \ Users \ jcmusashi \ Documents \ houdini16.5 \ PLUGINS HOUDINI FX \ Aelib-master

HOUDINI_OTLSCAN_PATH = $ AELIB / otls; &
HOUDINI_GALLERY_PATH = $ AELIB / gallery; &
HOUDINI_TOOLBAR_PATH = $ AELIB / toolbar; &
HOUDINI_SCRIPT_PATH = $ AELIB / scripts; &
HOUDINI_VEX_PATH = $ AELIB / vex / include; &


Obviously that way only AELIB works but QLIB does not work. I have made all kinds of configurations and I have come to the conclusion that it has to do something with the paths of the attacks which are repeated in both I imagine that the .ENV file decides to start the AELIB for having more files configured with SCRIPTS the truth I would appreciate that you help me with any data please

It should be something like this

 

HOUDINI_OTLSCAN_PATH = $AELIB/otls;$QOTL/base;$QOTL/future;$QOTL/experimental;&

jcmusashi - in response to your DM:

 

Add this into your houdini.env file

HOUDINI_PATH = C:\Users\jcmusashi\Documents\houdini16.5\myCustomTools; &

Don't have spaces in your paths or filenames.

Inside your 'myCustomTools' directory add folders that houdini will recognise - i.e. otls, scripts, toolbars etc

Houdini should then pick these up when it loads.

Or - if you just want otl directories then do as vtrvtr has suggested - using HOUDINI_OTLSCAN_PATH

To check it you an go to the shell and type hconfig - this will display your environment paths

yeahhhhh thank you very much Mr. garf for your answer just yesterday I sent a private msj asking you about this issue I wanted to configure everything in a single folder but I can not get it to work in my case I have configured the .env file as follows


TOOL QUICK = C: \ Users \ jcmusashi \ Documents \ houdini16.5 \ PLUGINS HOUDINI FX \ TOOL QUICK; &

HOUDINI_PATH = C: \ Users \ jcmusashi \ Documents \ houdini16.5 \ PLUGINS HOUDINI FX \ GameDevelopmentToolset-Development; &

QLIB = C: \ Users \ jcmusashi \ Documents \ houdini16.5 \ PLUGINS HOUDINI FX \ qLib-master
QOTL = $ QLIB / otls

HOUDINI_OTLSCAN_PATH = $ QOTL / base; $ QOTL / future; $ QOTL / experimental; @ / otls
HOUDINI_GALLERY_PATH = $ QLIB / gallery; @ / gallery
HOUDINI_TOOLBAR_PATH = $ QLIB / toolbar; @ / toolbar
HOUDINI_SCRIPT_PATH = $ QLIB / scripts; @ / scripts

AELIB = C: \ Users \ jcmusashi \ Documents \ houdini16.5 \ PLUGINS HOUDINI FX \ Aelib-master

HOUDINI_OTLSCAN_PATH = $ AELIB / otls; $ QOTL / base; $ QOTL / future; $ QOTL / experimental; &
HOUDINI_GALLERY_PATH = $ AELIB / gallery; &
HOUDINI_TOOLBAR_PATH = $ AELIB / toolbar; &
HOUDINI_SCRIPT_PATH = $ AELIB / scripts; &
HOUDINI_VEX_PATH = $ AELIB / vex / include; &

and the first line is to say the one that says TOOL QUICK in it I want to put assets that I downloaded from orbolt but I want that in the houdini menu you appear reflcted as TOOL QUICK when you select some tool you understand that I want to apologize if I bother so much with the subject but I promise to return every knowledge acquired to this TREMENDA PAGE god bless you friend GARF I hope I can count on your help

HOUDINI_PATH = C:\Users\jcmusashi\Documents\houdini16.5\PLUGINS_HOUDINI_FX\TOOL_QUICK; C:\Users\jcmusashi\Documents\houdini16.5\PLUGINS_HOUDINI_FX\GameDevelopmentToolset-Development; &

Lose the spaces in the your paths - I think they're ok if you put "" around them - but it's always safer to just not have spaces in file/folder names.

Any folders within GameDevelopmentToolset-Development and TOOL_QUICK will get picked up

 

If all else fails - remove all the variables within the houdini.env file and test it one line at a time to make sure you understand what is happening.

You are currently assigning TOOLQUICK as a variable but not using it anywhere. You need to add it to your HOUDINI_PATH or HOUDINI_OTLSCAN_PATH
