  1. Start license server on startup

    you should create a systemd service https://medium.com/@benmorel/creating-a-linux-service-with-systemd-611b5c8b91d6 but usually it should be created automaticly
  2. Compress Cache with PDG

    Hey, I want to compress caches with PDG. The idea is to split the cache in bundles of ~5 and compress them to then be uploaded afterwards. So what I would need to do is remap the work items in a way that they group to a fifth. Every new work item contains the 5 paths to the bundled cache files. If I got this setup I can trigger a python script to trigger the compression. Can someone help? Edit: I just found the filecompress node and will use that.
  3. Linux Houdini and floating panel are not linked

    Hi Martin, this is more of a desktop manager issue. What desktop manager are u using? Maybe consider switching.
  4. Howdy!

    Great to have you guys still around! How did you experience the community changing? Sometimes I read older posts and feel like back in the days the community was more skilled and willing to share, but maybe I'm wrong and it's just the few posts standing out?
  5. Houdini 19 Wishlist

    The default flipbook cancel behaviour should be to keep the current frame. I think there is a shortcut for this, but I keep forgetting about it.

    The only thing you can't sculpt on are the hair generated at renedertime, no?

    Things that would make life so much easier: 1. In manual mode truly don't cook anything! 2. If ESC is pressed just chill and stop whatevery you where doing.
  8. ik with constraints

    To fix the snapping you should place the pole further away. Haven't had the time to play a whole lot with kinefx, but why not use it? Especially for somethin like this it should be perfect.
  9. Is there an easy way to render lines in mantra with constant width ignorin the cameras perspective? I have an approach, but it feels too complex. Involving the cameras frustrum to calculate the needed scale factor.
  10. 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"
  11. 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
  12. What is your guess on how studios are going to deal with this?
  13. 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)?
  14. just guessing, but have you tried to print kwargs to see what it provides?
  15. 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?
