Selecting nodes by name


Recommended Posts

Hey all. I'm trying to evolve a procedure I found here: . Basically, I want to be able to return a list of objects based on their name. I'm pretty new to OOP, but I know MEL well. Is this the standard way to select by name/type in Houdini through Python?

My code:

def printSearch(term):

li = []

for n in hou.node('/').allSubChildren():

if n.name().startswith(term):

#print n.path()



print li


Traceback (most recent call last):

File "tool_5", line 11, in <module>

NameError: name 'li' is not defined
