Adding Custom Parameter Tags to the Built-In Tags menu May 26, 2022, 12:17 p.m.

Hey y'all!

I am trying to build a library of parameter tags but am unsure where to put them to be read into the "Built-In Tags..." menu. Where is the best place to add new tags?

I have attached a picture of the button that opens the "Choose Parameter Tag" menu and a picture of the same menu.

Thanks in advance!


"Built-in Tag..." Button from the Parameter Description menu within Type Properties/Parameters

Retrieve Level of the Houdini Asset Actor within the HDA Feb. 16, 2022, 6:25 p.m.

Hey y'all!

Is there a way I can retrieve the current level of an Houdini Asset Actor within the HDA itself from Unreal? I am using a curve input which I am only able to retrieve pos, rot, and scale on.

Take a look at VHDA from Labs. It's still XML, but their code looks clean enough to me.
