  1. Python3 Import is strange

    Hi, I'm updating my python scripts, but it behaves weird when importing with python3. I got a python3.7libs folder in my HOUDINI_PATH. Inside there is my lets say "tools" folder containing "__init__.py" and "test.py". In "test.py" there is a test function hello_world. If I now "import tools" I would expect to be able to call test.py by "tools.test" , wich is not working ("tools has no attribute test"). Only if I do "from tools import test" it works. Also if there is another python file in the folder called "utils.py" I'm not able to "import utils" in test.py. What am I doing wrong? Edit: My bad. I need to "import test from tools"
  2. red hat want's more paying customers. Centos stream will be kind of the stable version of Fedora. If you enjoy podcast, maybe this is interesting: https://linuxunplugged.com/383
  3. What is your guess on how studios are going to deal with this?
  4. CentOS Project shifts focus to CentOS Stream: CentOS Linux 8, as a rebuild of RHEL 8, will end at the end of 2021. CentOS Stream continues after that date, serving as the upstream (development) branch of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. https://lists.centos.org/pipermail/centos-announce/2020-December/048208.html CentOS Stream is some kind of rolling release wich will propably not be adapted by the vfx industry. What will be the follower of centOS 7 (commonly used in bigger vfx studios)?
  5. just guessing, but have you tried to print kwargs to see what it provides?
  6. Fuzzy Search like Tab menu

    Would be cool to have the functionality of the tab menu (fuzzy search) accessible for python scripts. Like having a list of custom entries wich can be searched by text field. Does someone know a way?
  7. ACEScg Volume Rendering

    ACES is always better. Its not just good for color saturation. Also highlight and shadow rolloff is much better. And in general it behaves more natural. You will see it in almost every production for cinema; netflix is using it and many others.
  8. Is there a shortcut to go one node down or/and up in the node tree?

  11. Hi! I want to apply some SOP operation to a bunch of files on disk using tops. Example: Given a moving sphere cached on disk - colored red. PDG: I want to find all files using file pattern - *redSphere* create a backup file; And now the part I'm struggling with: Open the cache and change the color of the sphere to white. Now replace the inital file with a new one. Sound trvial, but I'm struggling maybe because I want to kind of overwrite the file I'm working on. Any help is much appreciated. pdg_is_simple.hipnc

  14. Vex Vim Autocomplete

    Hi, Is someone here writing vex code with vim? I want to get started with vim and houdini (vim noob). But I have no idea on how to use autocompletion. I've seen those two gits: https://github.com/find/vim-vex-lang and https://github.com/davidhalter/jedi-vim . I've installed vim-vex-lang, but don't know how to activate it / trigger the completion. Maybe someone can give me a hint, any help is appreciated.
