Black surface from imported Illustrator path July 19, 2017, 11:35 a.m.

long time ago in a galaxy far away I produced this tool to clean AI files:

I think it still can be used for cleaning up imported AI.


unpacking a crowd? July 16, 2017, 4:13 p.m.

I am trying to manipulate the primitives of a small crowd with 2 agents but when I unpack the crowd I only get other packed primitives, no matter how many levels I set the unpack SOP. Is there any way to access the primitives of a crowd sim?

Edit: Ok, that was a really weird case of turn it off and on again I guess? I just reopen the scene place the unpack and now everything is fine…go figure. Sure some human error there…

Render queue or batch render. July 12, 2017, 5:29 a.m.

For anyone searching for the same answer this is how I ended up solving it:

I created a cmd file renderBatch.cmd, in it I wrote:

mread C:/houdiniProjects/folder/hip1.hip
render -f 43 45 -V /out/Beauty
mread C:/houdiniProjects/folder/hip2.hip
render -f 70 75 -V /out/Beauty

For some reason is important to set the frame range before the verbose -V

then I run in the Houdini command line tool:
hscript renderBatch.cmd


Hope this helps.
