Arnold installation


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I have, like others, some issues when try to install Arnold (python 2).

I also have Redshift, so here is a part of my houdini.env :

# htoa config start
ARNOLD_PATH = "$PATH;C:/Users/Windows/htoa/htoa-${HOUDINI_VERSION}/scripts/bin"
ARNOLD_HOU = "C:/Users/Windows/htoa/htoa-${HOUDINI_VERSION};&"
# htoa config end

REDSHIFT_PATH = "C:/ProgramData/Redshift/bin;$PATH"
REDSHIFT_HOU = "C:/ProgramData/Redshift/Plugins/Houdini/19.0.383;&"



I get some error in the console when loading Houdini :

[metadata] loading metadata file: C:\Users\Windows\htoa\htoa-\htoa-\scripts\bin\arnold.mtd

In my htoa folder, I don't have the "script/bin/.../plugins" folder, the only plugins folder I have is in script folder. There is no subfolder in "bin".

When I load Houdini, I have the Arnold renderer node, but the Property is empty.


Thank you for your help !!!
