Hey all,

I'm trying to change the default path to the executable for the rizom bridge in the labs tool set. I have updated my houdini.env file with a line like this:

RIZOMLOC=“D:/Rizom Lab/RizomUV 2019/rizomuv.exe”

It doesn't seem to be affecting the Rizom nodes. I'd assumed the env is the right place to change this but perhaps no?

Many thanks,
Pete

you can set the path in the settings for the node..

Yup. I'm aware of that but a node by node process is what I'm trying to avoid. I'm looking to update them all by default using the $rizomloc param but it doesn't seem to be taking.

i believe thats how it currently is setup.. you could always save as default settings on the ndoe..

yeah, from what I can see the paths look to be hard-coded and aren't pulling in any global var. I'll have to update each node with my new path and then redo that each time the tools get updated.

I guess longer term it would be cool if these nodes could follow a similar path to the gaea tools. Initially we had to provide a path to the exe but now I believe the location is gathered from the registry (?) which is pretty nice and invisible.

Anyway, I guess I have my answer for the time being.

Cheers,
Pete

Really nice if they put a path in the jason file or .env so we can change it from there.
