Location of nodes presets in File System

Recommended Posts

I need to port the nodes presets of my H15.0 installation to the H15.5 one, where are the presets file located in the file systems? I cant find them even without a search using the present name...

Sorry for the n00b question.

Thanks

Thanks!

My compute_path_length should be in the point wrangle section of the file but I cant find it.

I tried to create several others presets and it seems like Houdini doesn't even touch that file, the file last modification date is still the same indeed.

 

VEXpressions.txt

Ok,but you can just type this presets manualy inside txt file,right?)
It's syntax is very simple.
Moreover, you do not need to edit the main VEXpression.txt.
Easier to create your own in:

1Win)C:\Users\username\Documents 2:Linux)$HOME/houdiniX.X/

Yes I can surely create a file where I store all of my presets and personal settings manually, but the point here is that I used to use H15.0, and I can no longer acces it because they don't give Apprentice licenses anymore for that version (I asked via email to SideFx), and I had like 3 vex presets, 2 of which I no longer fully remember, and they aren't stored in the Vexpression.txt file of my H15.0 installation, so... are they lost?

Very strange,maybe before some version presets saved in somewhere else.Sorry,can check this.(
However, I do not understand why not rewrite/recover them from scratch once again.

I cannot rewrite them because I dont fully remember them and I cannot recover them because they are not in the H15.0 vexpression file.

To be honest I don't really immediately need them, but I'd like to port everything I had on the H15.0 installation on my current H15.5, I've done it with otls and I wanted to do it with presets too.
