Update mode from “Always” to “Never.”

Recommended Posts

Hey hey, was just wondering which custom keys are you using for these guys? (Update mode from “Always” to “Never.”)

I assigned Q and E, but E is scale so not the best one to use for it.

Cheers

Hi, if you would like only one key to toggle the states, you might want this script. I will copypaste it from the sidefx forum, original by Archie is linked below

 

You can create the simple script for toggle between “Auto Update” and “Manual update”, for example:

mode = hou.updateModeSetting().name()
if mode == 'AutoUpdate':
	hou.setUpdateMode(hou.updateMode.Manual)
if mode == 'Manual':
	hou.setUpdateMode(hou.updateMode.AutoUpdate)

Thanks, that's helpful, but I don't want to customize anything too much at work. I was just curios which keys are being used mostly amongst TDs.
