Variable to return machine name April 25, 2022, 6:04 p.m.

Thanks guys, most helpful.

$COMPUTERNAME was the one. Must have been the only combo I didn't try!

Thanks again,

Hi all!

I am sure I have done this before a few years back but can't for the life of me remember the syntax.

Is there a way I can get the current machine's name as a variable (to put into either a file path or font sop)?

Will be handy for a render node debug scene I am preparing.

I have memory of it being $MACHINE_NAME or $HOSTNAME, something along those lines but any variation on that theme I try comes up blank.


KineFX and animator friendly promotion of controls? March 22, 2021, 11:50 a.m.

Many thanks Hektor, I will check them out.

Hopefully the tools get bolstered with such things for the next release.
