Script to select visible geometry

Recommended Posts


I am able to select visible geometry manually, or even make a script to toggle the option to select geometry manually. But I'm wondering if there is a way to automatically select visible geometry only via a script? I have been unable to figure it out but it would be awesome if possible (may not be possible though?).

This will select the OBJ-level nodes that have their Display Flag set to True"

OBJ = hou.node("/obj")
objnodes = OBJ.children()
mylist = []

for n in objnodes:
    print n
    if n.isDisplayFlagSet() == True:
print mylist

for i in mylist:
    hou.ObjNode.setSelected(i, 1)
