How to use scipy with Houdini 17 on windows? April 17, 2019, 9:35 a.m.

The same compilers is simply not available on windows and it would be a massive job for sidefx supporting a workaround. Reading the history around the project behind the old win-scipy has convinced me of this.

As I mentioned before my suggestion would be to find the specific feature you want from scipy and implement this. Think that would also be a more reasonable rfe for sidefx.

Why we don't have a dedicated TOP context? April 11, 2019, 11:45 a.m.

… bring a massive amount complexity to that context for little actual benefit.
Can we make quotes stickys?

Context View suggestion for PDG April 5, 2019, 3:17 a.m.

I think this makes a lot of sense, as the manager of processes, diagnozing should be a absolute key feature for pdg. Unfortunately Houdini isn't capable of previewing all the data so I think it should be handled with care, it will be very frustrating accidentally opening Maya by clicking the wrong button for example. I can see a place for a generalized framework like a “preview event signal” for tasks and a (good) pref management to bind formats to viewers. Maybe this binding should be on the RMB menu for tasks, greyed out when there is no valid previewer for the data/attribute? And what to do with tasks/partitions that contains multiple files? one menu item per valid preview binding?
