  1. Hi, I'm sure this question has been asked many time, but I can't find a clear and concise answer, and SideFX tutorials either have dead url or do not respond to the question. What I'm trying to achieve: I want to set $JOB, $HIP and $HOUDINIHOME variables once and for all. - Setting up $JOB and $HIP should allow me to save a lot of time every time I need to save something, as Houdini explorer will use those path as default. - (I'm really not sure about this one) Setting up $HOUDINIHOME should allow me to have a secure place where all my preferences, hda etc are stored. I should be able to copy them easily between computers. Where I'm stuck: I read there are different solutions to setup those variable: changing the OS Environment Variables, with python... I just want to modify houdini.env, as it seems less intrusive. On windows, houdini.env should be here: C:\Users\*USERNAME*\Documents\houdini*VERSION*\houdini.env I typed those variables: But while Houdini successfully changed $JOB, default $HIP is still the same. Can anyone explain to me exactly how to setup those variables with houdini.env?
