HDA "widget-style" parms Oct. 26, 2020, 6:12 p.m.

Hey guys,

I'm building an HDA with a somewhat complex set of parms and I wonder if there would be a way to group a few parms together to create an uber parm block, so I can duplicate it around for other parms, a little bit like what you can create in pyqt with widgets.
I read about Import blocks a bit, but I don't think they can do what I want.

For example, let's assume that I have a block of parms as follow :
- A toggle
- A label
- A min value
- A max value
- A variation value
- etc.

So now I want a Parm block for let's say “density” and “rotation”, same ui, same behaviour, just different Parm names. I can duplicate manually the parms, but it would be great to have such a “block” to control the overall UI/logic, specially if I want to change the global look and feel later.

I assume this is something that is probably not doable, but maybe there is a way ?

Let me know,

Thanks a lot,


Python states and Edit Node Oct. 3, 2020, 10 a.m.

Hi guys,

Is there a hook to be able to get the behaviour of a Edit Sop as the default state of an HDA ? Or is there a Python Viewer State for that ?



Loop networks not updating properly Aug. 25, 2020, 2:19 p.m.

In case this happens to anyone…

If you have OTLs with a lot of loops, it is quite important to use spare inputs and protect any input feeding the loops with some begin block nodes. It seems like it fixed all the issues for me (so far…)
