Not able to find houdini.env?

Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm trying to install the Octane plugin for Houdini 17.5, but am having trouble finding the houdini.env file. I'm pretty sure I'm looking in the right place (This PC\documents\Houdini17.5), but it's just not there. Is there something I have to do to initialize it or is it supposed to be there by default?

Thanks a bunch for any help.

houdini.env should be created in the directory you mentioned when you start houdini the first time, assuming you haven't changed the $HOME environment variable. On windows you can got to start > search for "environment variables" and check out the HOUDINI_USER_PREF_DIR environment variable and make sure it's not getting put somewhere else.
