Houdini 19.0 Reference Panes

Scene graph details pane

Displays attribute values, metadata, and other information about the prims selected in the scene graph tree.

On this page

When you select prims from the tree in the scene graph tree pane, you can view information about the selected prims in this pane, similar to how Pixar’s usdview utility works.

The pane is divided into a subpane showing the attributes on the selected prim(s), and secondary subpane showing the values, metadata, and other info about any attributes you select in the primary subpane.
