Hello folks, so, i have a bunch of houdini file with a top node at OBJ level, all file have the same structure and are in the same folder I would like to cook the TOP node from external, Python or another TOP graph. I tried in a background script to access with hou.node('/obj/topnet').parm('cookbutton').pressButton(), but it seems that doesn't cook anything Any idea ? Thanks in advance
So my understanding is you can use command line tools to render out a frame or frame range like so hrender -e -f 4 39 -v -d your_ROP path_to_file/with_no_spaces_in_name.hip and also a batch file after creating your batch file first. What changes would you need to make if you are using a GPU renderer like Redshift or Octane?
Hello I'm sending alembic rops to hqueue and there's a lot of preroll. Even with alfred-style progress turned on, I have no feedback on what's going on. I was thinking that I could add a python node to write to the stdout (which I though would show up in the hqueue logs) like so: import sys f= hou.frame() sys.stdout.write('frame: '+str(f) + '\n') But it doesn't work. Any ideas ? When I start houdini with the -foreground option (so that the shell it launches from doesn't spawn a new process and should receive outputs) and write to stdout, it only shows up in the python console Thanks
