Hi there! A while back I was able to set up my Cygwin environment to mimic that of a unix shell using either bash/tcsh in combination with a series of python script that would initialize Houdini and other environment with various version controls. It was done more for academic exercises, rather... I was able to invoke Houdini from within Cygwin and (if my memory hasn't failed me) was also able to use posix path in Houdini/Mplay that was launched from Cygwin. It does actually works, just takes a little more time to configure compared to that of Linux/OSX... -Alex On 3/31/10 11:32 AM, Robert Kelly wrote:
So i can launch houdini and mantra from python to set all of my environment stuff ? .... if so that sounds good to me!
