arnold and redshift for Houdini 16.0.705 (conflict)

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

I have this problem that I can't fix:

I have redshift and arnold installed (Redshift working perfectly).When env file contains path to arnold and houdini,only redshift is working.

If I remove redshift lines from env file ,arnold apear in the menu but give traceback errors and stuff ! Do you know what is wrong here?

 

env file :

# Example:
#
# HOUDINI_NO_SPLASH = 1
HOUDINI_USE_HFS_PYTHON = 1

# htoa config start
PATH = "$PATH;C:\Users\screenglow\htoa\htoa-2.1.3_rcca6014_houdini-16.0.705\htoa-2.1.3_rcca6014_houdini-16.0.705\scripts\bin"
HOUDINI_PATH = "C:\Users\screenglow\htoa\htoa-2.1.3_rcca6014_houdini-16.0.705\htoa-2.1.3_rcca6014_houdini-16.0.705;&"
# htoa config end


HOUDINI_DSO_ERROR = 2
PATH = "C:/ProgramData/Redshift/bin;$PATH"
HOUDINI_PATH = "C:/ProgramData/Redshift/Plugins/Houdini/16.0.705;&"


Thank you.

you're overwriting the arnold stuff with the redshift path & Houdini path. try something like adding a :

HOUDINI_PATH = "C:\Users\screenglow\htoa\htoa-2.1.3_rcca6014_houdini-16.0.705\htoa-2.1.3_rcca6014_houdini-16.0.705;&:C:\Users\screenglow\htoa\htoa-2.1.3_rcca6014_houdini-16.0.705\htoa-2.1.3_rcca6014_houdini-16.0.705;&"

Agree with @marty. In case there are multiple assignments per variable (HOUDINI_PATH, PATH, etc.) only the entries of last one will registered properly (variable shadowing). If HOUDINI_PATH already has an entry, you can concatenate the paths separated by a semicolon(;) on Windows. Please note that even on a Windows machine forward slashes are required. Also make sure that all paths are valid and there is no white space between each path and the separator(;).

Arnold, Redshift & Renderman example:

# 
# Houdini Environment Settings - houdini.env
#
# ...

PATH = "$PATH;C:/ProgramData/Redshift/bin;C:/Users/<USER_NAME>/htoa/htoa-2.1.3_rcca6014_houdini-16.0.705/htoa-2.1.3_rcca6014_houdini-16.0.705/scripts/bin;C:/Program Files/Pixar/RenderManProServer-21.5/bin;&"

HOUDINI_PATH = "C:/ProgramData/Redshift/Plugins/Houdini/16.0.557;C:/Users/<USER_NAME>/htoa/htoa-2.1.3_rcca6014_houdini-16.0.705/htoa-2.1.3_rcca6014_houdini-16.0.705;&"
