Could you store the deltas on the node's Python data dict itself? Then no need editable nodes, which usually cause problems unless it's part of a specific artist workflow.

OK nevermind, I had $HOME/houdini17.5/houdini.env that looks like was set up by the GameDev toolset or something. It seems to have broken everything. I've removed that and all is well.

Hi,

Good advice thanks!

Sadly, Hqueue is steadfastly refusing to work for me and I can't figure out why

 The Houdini 17.5.257 environment has been initialized.
Can't open dophints.cmd

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/mnt/suse42_3/opt/data_root/hqShared/hqShared/pdgtemp/31863/scripts/rop.py", line 35, in <module>
    import hqueue.houdini as hq
ImportError: No module named hqueue.houdini

# ---- Running onError ----

# ---- Finished running onError ----

If I look at the debug info, I run this command in Bash and it fails:

In fact, just trying to run Hython gives me:

export HFS="/opt/software/hfs17.5" && cd $HFS && source ./houdini_setup && "$HFS/bin/hython"

Any hints appreciated!
