Promote Ramp parameter via python

Recommended Posts


Is it possible to promote a ramp parameter (retaining channel links) via python (or even hscript)?

Open Operator Type Properties window, then select Export Parameter to Type Properties in ramp's parameter context menu. Is it what you are looking for?

Sorry I don't follow what you're suggesting but I don't think it would be that.

I'm looking for an automated way to promote a node's parameters to another. Currently the only way I know how to do this successfully for ramp parameters (or any multi-parm parameter) is through the UI with these steps:

- select a given parameter to promote from a node's parameter dialog window

- drag selected parameter into a different node's parameter interface window

- the different node will now have a copy of the selected parameter, with channel references to the original parameter that will update when you add new control points to the ramp.


I would like to achieve the same with a script. Currently for other parameters I can setup a channel reference simply by doing hou.parm.set( [hou.parm object of parameter I want to link to] ) but this fails for ramp parameters.
