i'm running houdini indie 15.5.480.

I'm trying to set up cloud rendering, and after filling out the info in Cloud Properties i get this error pop up everytime:

Traceback (most recent call last):

TypeError: ‘module’ object is not callable

Seems to be the same as this post below, can anyone shed some light on what causes this? []

This error statement TypeError: ‘module’ object is not callable [] is raised as you are being confused about the Class name and Module name. The problem is in the import line . You are importing a module, not a class. This happend because the module name and class name have the same name .

If you have a class “MyClass” in a file called “” , then you should import :

from MyClass import MyClass

In Python , a script is a module, whose name is determined by the filename . So when you start out your file with import MyClass you are creating a loop in the module structure.
