  1. I know you can somehow display the path to the OTL definition on top of the parameter menu and also use that to swap OTL definitions. The problem is, the option to show this is hidden somewhere and I cannot find it, so any help would be very much appreciated.
  2. Desktop spec for FX

    Hi everyone, I am working with our IT department to built up a desktop for heavily FX work(mostly water and pyro simulations). Below are three options that we are considering about it, I am looking for any comments or recommendation on different configuration. Thank you
  3. Laptop Quadro or GTX, pros & cons

    Hello people! I am buying a laptop workstation to use while traveling for a few months later this year and I don't know if I should buy a laptop with a Quadro or a GTX card in it. What are the pros & cons? (price excluded) Does Houdini run better in general on Quadro cards? Also, feel free to drop some laptop recommendations if you have any! I've got my eyes on a Dell Precision 7710. Best regards, //Simon
  4. I am sorry to bring back this zombie question about this topic again I probably read all the posts on internet about the topic and the houdini doc as well, but I am now more confused than before Question A) What I'd like to do is to configure my houdini system path variables in order to follow this priority for OTL scan and scripts too (like 123 ... 456 ... etc): 1) a shot example: d:/projects/supercoolproj/seq1/shot3/otls d:/projects/supercoolproj/seq1/shot3/scripts ... 2) a sequence example: d:/projects/supercoolproj/seq1/otls d:/projects/supercoolproj/seq1/scripts ... 3) a show example: d:/projects/supercoolproj/otls d:/projects/supercoolproj/scripts ... 4) houdini $HOME/houdini12.5/otls $HOME/houdini12.5/scripts $HOME/houdini12.5/.. ... Basically the deeper the directory structure, the higher the override priority with elements with the same file name. Now, so far only the 4) works. My current status is the following: ... I copied and pasted the directories created by houdini at install time in d:/data/Houdini/prefs/houdini12.1 d:/data/Houdini/prefs/houdini12.5 ... and created a system variable HOME pointing to d:/data/Houdini/prefs So far, Houdini can find all the otls i store in $HOME/houdiniXX.X/otls Can someone help me to setup $HOME/houdini12.5/houdini.env to follow the priorities illustrated at the beginning of the message or point me to some documentation that clearly explains it ? p.s. I am on Windows 8 thank you in advance for any possible help on this
