Houdini env var windows backslash issues April 14, 2015, 8:20 p.m.

sys.path.append(python_path) in the pythonrc worked. I did have to have a custom env var for my hsite to run the pythonrc still. So any advice on dealing with forward slashes when working between applications would still be appreciated.

Houdini env var windows backslash issues April 14, 2015, 7:57 p.m.

I have a python path env var shared across mult software applications that I also want to share for houdini and use functionality from in my pythonrc startup script.

Issue is application A, B and C require backwards slashes in the env var which I can't use to set PYTHONPATH and HSITE in my houdini.env. Everything works when hardcoding my path with forward slashes. However I want to avoid this, I also want to avoid a custom env var just for Houdini. Is there any work around to convert back slashes to forward slashes in my houdini.env?

Or is there some startup script I can set houdini env in that runs before the pythonrc? I tried setting os.environ in the pythonrc but this did not work.

selecting individual pieces in maya after fracturing April 13, 2015, 7:33 p.m.

Thanks, that does make splitting up the pieces for later operations easy. However, how should I go about creating UVs for the interior faces without using groups?
