Redshift ROP throwing an error when I try to put it down

Recommended Posts

RS 3.0.13 and RS 3.0.16 tested and both fail.

Houdini 18.0.287


Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "Redshift", line 1, in <module>
  File "C:/PROGRA~1/SIDEEF~1/HOUDIN~1.287/houdini/python2.7libs\roptoolutils.py", line 10, in createRenderNode
    rop = hou.node('/out').createNode(rop_type, exact_type_name=True)
  File "C:/PROGRA~1/SIDEEF~1/HOUDIN~1.287/houdini/python2.7libs\houpythonportion\ui.py", line 851, in decorator
    return func(*args, **kwargs)
  File "C:/PROGRA~1/SIDEEF~1/HOUDIN~1.287/houdini/python2.7libs\hou.py", line 9251, in createNode
    return _hou.Node_createNode(*args, **kwargs)
OperationFailed: The attempted operation failed.
Invalid node type name

I have absolutely no idea what is going on and I need to get a scene put together to test for work in the next 24 hours.  Any clues?

You could double-check your houdini.env settings, sometimes the $HOUDINI_VER doesn't match the specific build of Houdini you're using for the Redshift plugin.  Try replacing this with the exact path to the RS plugin that's compatible with your Houdini build.

For example: on a recent project, we were locked to version 2.6.48, which doesn't have a specific build for Houdini 17.5.425, so I needed to change this plugin path to point to the latest houdini build instead (17.5.360).  While this isn't guaranteed to work, it did in this case, and was able to run the older RS plugin with the newer Houdini build.
