Setting SOP Path in Python


Recommended Posts

I'd like to set the SDF SOP PATH for a Fluid Object in Python to "/obj/geo1/platonic1". Currently I'm doing this with the following expression.

myFluidObject.parm('surface_soppath').set("/obj/" + str(myNode) + "/" + str(myPlatonicNode))

But, I imagine there must be a cleaner way of setting this final path. Given Houdini knows that myPlatonicNode = <hou.SopNode of type platonic at /obj/geo1/platonic1> - I'm hoping there's a way to extract path at the end, instead of the cumbersome string formatting process I'm using... In my imaginary world, something like:-


Be there anything magical like that?
