dzigakaiser Posted January 9, 2020 Share Posted January 9, 2020 (edited) Hey guys, I am currently stuck with a tool I am writing. I have a json file that contains data from Clarisse and I wrote a shelf tool that re-creates Clarisse's scatter in Houdini. I went the path of creating an Add SOP with the python script with all the points from Clarisse and their position data, a few Attribute Create SOPs, CopyToPoints SOP and the asset file. Now I need to add my orient attribute to the points based on the XYZ rotation that is saved in the json. The problem I encounter is that I actually cannot add point attributes via the shelf tool python script, right? I tried to find a solution to this but as far as I understand, as long as I am not working from a Python SOP or the shell I can only call the geometry() object as read only or freeze() it but then I cannot write the attributes back onto the points(?) Is there something I misunderstand or another workflow I am missing? If one you has an idea or solution or other comment, I appreciate it Thank you!
