How to use $HIP? Oct. 15, 2018, 10:54 a.m.

Looks like I did it. I set my own root folder as $JOB and $HIP link was created automatically.

But not for my geometry and texture files, and I had to write links for them manually.

Now everything works on a flash drive too. But is this correct or should this textures $HIP path be created automatically?

You can't set $HIP. $HIP always refers to the directory your .hip file is found in.

It does not work for me for some reason. Sometimes I need to move a project to a flash drive and all paths for textures are lost after that.

Is it impossible to set in the Aliases and Variables menu?

Can you advise step by step lessons how to use relative path in Houdini?

First use Set Project, then use $JOB instead of $HIP when you bring any file (textures so on).

I select my custom folder, press “Accept” and it set $JOB. And how to set $HIP?
