Can't get HDK plug-ins to load in Houdini 17 Feb. 23, 2019, 12:44 p.m.

It seems that the path C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\VC\bin\Hostx86\x64 is a path found in VS 2017. Does anyone know if VS 2017 should be used to build plug-ins for Houdini 17 ? As far as I can tell, VS 2015 should still be the correct version…

Can't get HDK plug-ins to load in Houdini 17 Feb. 22, 2019, 7:26 p.m.

Hi everyone
I am trying to build a custom HDK plug-in for Houdini 17 but I can't get it to work even though I have been able to do this for earlier versions of Houdini without problems using both cmake and hcustom following the instructions in the HDK docs and setting the MSVCDir.

I have also tried to build the SOP_Star example using cmake but the plug-ins wont load in Houdini even though the solutions seem to build just fine without error. The plug-in is not visible within Houdini.

I use Visual Studio 2015 with update 3 and Houdini 17.0.459 .

I have also tried to use hcustom, but then I get this error:

Failed to run C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\VC\bin\Hostx86\x64\cl with error 2: The system cannot find the file specified.

This path does not seems to exist but when I use cmake it targets this dir:

CProgram Files (x86)/Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0/VC/bin/x86_amd64/cl.exe

And creates the solution which builds just fine in VS.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Get collision geometry with the HDK July 24, 2018, 1:27 p.m.

Hi everyone

I'm trying to write a DOP with the HDK and I want to implement collisions. So to do that I need to get the attached collision geometry data. My question is: How could I get a list of collision geometries with the HDK from within a DOP solver ?

I have looked in the documentation but to no avail so far. The closest thing I have found is the implemnetation of constraints but I have not been able to figure out how to use this for collisions so any help would be greatly appreciated
