Xgen Guides from Houdini Engine Curves


Recommended Posts


Curves to Guides with Python/MEL

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 #
