Running .bat with existing houdini.env Sept. 20, 2018, 6:19 a.m.

Hi Ilya! Thank you for responding to this. I already forgot that I posted this a year ago

I guess to avoid confusion (and by following your answer), I should also rename the HOUDINI_PATHto something like MY_HTOOLS.

HOUDINI_PATH = "X:\tools\tools_A;$MY_HTOOLS;&"

set MY_HTOOLS=Y:\tools\tools_B

(I haven't tested this yet though! I don't have (and can't remember) the batch file anymore >__<)

how to bake the 3d vector field to xz plane and xy plane color textures? Dec. 8, 2017, 5:50 a.m.

I used ‘color’ simply because it is easier to understand You can bind it to any name you want.

Regarding saving to JPG, it won't work probably because JPG does not support multiple channels or image planes.

That is odd.. I opened the file that you attached.
And the only thing I changed was the Light Exports setting I suggested.

Here's a capture of what I did:

As can be seen, I set the Light Exports to the default, then hit Render to MPlay. The results does show the velocity colors baked.

I wonder why it doesn't work on your end. Your file does show that we are using the same version of Houdini.

I attached the new file, could you open this and hit Render to MPlay, then check if you can see the ‘color’ image plane?
