Houdini's own implemtation of PY


Recommended Posts

Ah, well, it uses the not-the-very-latest-version-of-Python, but I don't think that's a big problem. Perhaps that's what he/she meant. I don't think it's important. Don't worry about it. By the time such a thing would really become an issue for you, you've probably got other concerns than using the latest Python version anyway.

But it was mentioned as negative thing. Don't really see why HOM would be a such:)

It's about python interpreter and Windows, where Houdini can't really use system python interpreter, because it can'be be sure it was complied with the same version of MVSC++ as H. So it comes with a minimal version of python compiled by SESI. It means there is a chance that one of your favorite python module won't work with it (specially if it has a c++ code in it ot it's a plain wrapper around C code). It happens. For Linux, Houdini's implementation of Python rocks.
