Custom info parameter? Sept. 11, 2017, 11:39 a.m.


Is there any way to set up a parameter that is read only? Meaning I want to fetch certain data from the Houdini calculation and show them in the C4D Asset interface.
In Houdini it is just a matter of “Paste relative reference”, but that expression doesn't show in C4D.
For my particular project, I want to calculate and expose the distance between objects in a copy and transform node.

Also semi-related, is there a way to have a float or int (vec1) that doesn't have a slider?

houdini curve to AutoCAD/dwg/Illustrator Sept. 6, 2017, 10:20 a.m.

Right now the best option I have found is saving as .obj and exporting them to .dxf through Cinema 4D. As mentioned earlier curves export from Houdini to .dxf are triangulating and there is to much clean up involved.
It's been a few years now since this post and I am looking for a better solution. One that preferably involves ONLY one software, Houdini.
