SOLVED: Seeing all active variables in houdini Oct. 21, 2019, 9:56 a.m.

Hi bonsak,

thanks for looking into this!

“hconfig” doesn't give all the variables on my computer, but the Windows -> Shell hint was the right thing to do. If I type “set” there all the variables appear. Everything I defined in my houdini.env and all the others I wanted to see.

Many thanks, that helped me a lot.

SOLVED: Seeing all active variables in houdini Oct. 21, 2019, 4:05 a.m.


is it possible to get a list of all the variables that are in my actual houdini?

Because someone (Pablo) at the houdini discord helped me to find a variable named “$HOUDINI_OS” which gives the actual OS Houdini is running on. Even now, that I know this variable exists (and works) I am not able to get any information about it or any other variables that might exist in Houdini I am not aware of. If I set TMP = “/opt/path/bla/” in my houdini.env “$TMP” works fine, but I don´t know how to see these variables in houdini. “set” and “setenv” in the texteditor just seem to give a couple of common variables but not all that are working.


Measure SOP expression help. Oct. 14, 2019, 9:39 a.m.

I would promote the area attribute to detail and choose max. Than you can refer to that maximum value within the blast SOP.
