Python comand line scripting import hou generates double free/corruption error Jan. 27, 2019, 10:10 a.m.

I'm also seeing this error when importing hou into an external python script (Linux Mint).

Is it just me or importing exported alembic cameras is crashy? May 18, 2017, 5:16 a.m.

Just had the same problem. Houdini 16.0.600

The exported alembic camera was connected to a camera which had been linked via vtorigin()/vrotigin(). Also tried with CHOPs. Both crash on import.

Trying to export Birth Number (or ID ?) attributes Aug. 8, 2016, 10:32 a.m.

A POP id is unique across the whole sim and is assigned by a simple counter of new particles. The ‘gaps’ in your screenshot are caused by particles dying and being removed.

Your fake id is just the raw point number calculated after the sim and is not time dependent. Your scattered points are not related frame-by-frame so the fake id seems meaningless?

Are you perhaps looking to advect points through the pyro sim ( pop advect / vdb advect points ) rather than scattering?
