Hi,

I've searched all over for a way to set up the default camera resolution in Houdini to be 1080P or whatever I want.
I get tired of always having to go into the View settings and changing it up.

Is there a way to do this so the camera defaults to 1080P or some other user defined resolution?

Thanks,

Jim

Set your camera resolution to desired values then save as preset?

Is there a hook in the caminit.cmd for a user one, or does it have to be overridden wholesale? I don't like presets for nodes with render properties, such as camera's and objects, since they can go stale in major versions.

At my studio we use a custom alembic camera HDA that adds the render properties on creation and sets the resolution based on the current shot environment.

Well, I ended up just editing the Python script in the tool to set it up.

newnode.parm(“resx”).set(1920)
newnode.parm(“resy”).set(1080)

Probably not the best solution, but at least it sets the camera view to what I normally work in.
