Hi,

I downloaded Houdini Apprentice very recently, and tried to install MOPS, via the first suggestion (create a packages folder -> move MOPS.json there and edit the path pointing to the MOPS folder), and via the second suggestion (edit the houdini.env file, and change the ; for : before a path, cause i'm in a mac, i'm also using forward slashes), and didn't succeed installing it.
I restarted the computer and seeked for some node called MOPS in houdini, but no, there isn't one. Wouldn't know how else to debug this install.

First of all, does MOPS work in Houdini Apprentice? Maybe I can't install because of that…

Thanks

Yep should work in H Apprentice.

Can you post screenshots of the relevant folderstructure and the code in the .env/.json please?

Hi Ofelia!

Sorry you're having trouble… sounds like you're doing the right thing with the package install. Have you tried jumping into a Geometry container node and then looking for MOPs nodes? There are none at the Object level.

If you still don't see anything, it'd be great if you could post what your MOPS.JSON file looks like, and where you've placed it on your system.

MOPs is compatible with any license type so it should be fine on Apprentice.

If you want a faster response in the future, you can just contact me directly or try the forums linked from the MOPs homepage… I occasionally check these forums but I can't automatically know when new questions are posted.

Installing MOPs on Mac Apprentice worked with:

{
	"env": [
		{
			"MOPS": "/Users/user/Documents/MOPS-0.1.66/"
		},
	],
	"path": "$MOPS"
	
}

Take care to include the last ‘/’ of the file path.

Thanks for the answers! I ommited the last “/” and it works fine for me; I just had to search inside the geometry container.

{
"env": [
{
"MOPS": "/Users/ofelia/Library/Preferences/houdini/17.5/MOPS"
},
],
"path": "$MOPS"

}
