How to query USD prim World Bounding Box Dec. 7, 2022, 7:55 p.m.
A very simple question which seems to be tricky to figure out! All geom prims have a World Bounding Box shown in Solaris Scene Graph Details. How does one access that via Python and Vex?! I've tried the following, but I get inconsistent results that are not the same as what's shown in Scene Graph Details!
from pxr import Usd, UsdGeom
node = hou.pwd()
stage = node.editableStage()
prim = stage.GetPrimAtPath('/scene/geo/cube')
bbox_cache = UsdGeom.BBoxCache(0, ['default'])
bbox = bbox_cache.ComputeWorldBound(prim).box
Remove primitives by attribute via VEX Aug. 18, 2021, 5:52 p.m.
I have an alembic named
pathattribute in it which are the geos it contains. I'd like to use specific geos(path) from this as a mesh light which would get plugged into "Geometry Object" parameter on the light. However, this parameter reads the whole object (e.g.
../light_geo). Is there any way to exclude parts of it in the same parameter via an expression? I can of course use a blast node and remove path primitives but I'd rather do it all in the Geometry Object parameter.
