Xgen Guides from Houdini Engine Curves

Recommended Posts

 

Curves to Guides with Python/MEL

Hi, 
For my current Houdini/Maya project I need a tool for quick conversion of externally generated curves to Xgen.
Import works fine but couldn't figure out a way to convert via Python/MEL. 

 

cmds.xgmMakeGuideDynamic(createFromCurves = True,deleteCurves = False, preserveDynamicLink = False)

Python code above failed with following error message (with Curves selected):

# RuntimeError: No valid modifier node specified.
# XGen: (kFailure): Unexpected Internal Failure #

Thanks

XGen have a curve to guides utilities, maybe that's what you are looking for ? I know Xgen but still learning Houdini.

Thanks:) But that is basically what I was trying to automate if possible to generate hair on procedural assets imported with Houdini Engine.
