Orient all prims in the same direction Feb. 3, 2023, 10:54 a.m.

Thank you toadstorm! Worked perfectly. I overlooked that since forcing the prim normals to all be Y-up didn't change anything and there were no primitive normals in the geo inspector, but I guess there were still hidden prim normals to be detected by the group sop?

Orient all prims in the same direction Feb. 2, 2023, 5:38 p.m.

I can't orient all these prims upwards no matter what I try. I understand it's because of the vertex order but I don't know of any way to give all input prims the same vertex order (e.g. all clockwise/counterclockwise). I've tried methods with Clean, PolyDoctor, Primitive, Sort, even forcing assignment of up, N, and orient with attribwrangle but nothing works.

HARS.exe freezing Unreal after every PIE Jan. 24, 2023, 3:32 p.m.


While using Houdini Engine in Unreal with an active session, every time I exit Play In Editor mode, the editor freezes. If I go into task manager and kill the HARS.exe subprocess of UnrealEditor, it unfreezes. Otherwise it will remain frozen.

I've seen some users post about issues related to HARS.exe freezing Unreal or issues not clearing memory, but no specific resolutions. I don't see any particular errors in the message log to follow up on, so I'm not sure where to start investigating. Maybe a problem with the hapi setup? The plugin works fine otherwise.
