Hi I am trying to follow Ari's tutorial https://vimeo.com/323291527 for generating a side by side montage of some wedged Pyro sim, that i'm trying to test out. My TOP network seems to work fine except the final node: ffmpegencodevideo. I am not really sure how to set the correct path on windows, as Ari's version is for MAC, and have tried removing the C:, .exe and also using forward and backslashes. Do I even need to set the environment file to look at the FFMPEG? Quite confused on how to set this up correctly.
Hi everyone! I'm starting to get into Python 2.7 for Houdini Indie (17.5) before jumping into Houdini 18 with Python 3, and I've been working in a flipbook tool until now everything is being okay but now I've found that I can't recover the camera settings/flipbook settings after generating the MPlay to maintain the user settings after applying the script. I've been trying to use the 'hou.GeometryViewportCamera.stash()' to create a copy of the settings but I'm not sure how to use it and where should I recover these settings. Also when I try to use it I get this error: 'TypeError: unbound method setDefaultCamera() must be called with GeometryViewport instance as first argument (got nothing instead)' I've created a simplified version of the script that I'll be attaching down below: If someone has any advice or idea of how would be the good approaching intro this, I'll bee really thankful. Thanks in advance to everyone.
Hi Houdini friends, It seems that the flipbook lockfile name changed from 17.0 to 17.5? The hostname was using the one without the domain in 17.5, e.g. it is now .flipbook_lock.<hostname_with_out_domain>-<session_name> Is there a way / an env variable that is stored for this? trying to get it from socket.gethostname() or platform.node() would all produce the full host name with domain, and there seems to be only "HOSTNAME" in env related to this, which is also the full host name with domain. I could try to see if this lock file exists by wildcarding the domain, but just wanted to make sure that there might be a better way to know this for sure? Thanks so much in advance! - Viola
Have you got it installed and working and what jumped right out at you and is your instant best-friend? Not "What looks cool?" to try out, those can sometime fall by the wayside. But what actually attaches its self to the way you work? Or maybe it's too early to say.
