Being able to display and output different geometry in an hda Jan. 10, 2020, 3:30 a.m.

Hey sidenimjay,

Yeah that is multiple outputs - not what I'm looking for.

I was able to solve it using some hscript in combination with python:

opflag and opname and changing the display flag.

This won't work, you cannot edit locked nodes.

How to Control Houdini Terrain Resolution in UE4 Dec. 23, 2019, 9:41 a.m.

If you want to keep the HDA ‘live’ do not edit the settings on the Landscape directly they will be overwritten on each cook.
The Landscape resolution is defined by your heightfield resolution, so if you want more resolution in UE4 you should use a higher-res heightfield.
If on the other end you want to reduce the resolution, use the Heightfield Resample node and it will lower the UE4 Landscape resolution.

The engine is clever about its updates usually and on opening a map it should not do anything as the data generated should be there already.
What are your inputs / outputs ?
