Which version of Python is best to work with H16 and forward? May 14, 2019, 1 p.m.

garyo
I know this is an old thread, but is there any news on python3 support in Houdini 17? Since Python2 is being end-of-lifed very soon (https://pythonclock.org/) I'm hoping not to build my new tooling around it.

Hello,

There are no plans to bring Python 3 support to Houdini 17.0 or 17.5.

Our goal is to follow the VFX Reference Platform (http://vfxplatform.com/) and ideally have a tech preview (i.e. not production ready) Python 3 build later this year for the next major Houdini release and an official build next year.

Cheers,
Rob

Can't export animation in FBX May 2, 2019, 4:19 p.m.

I wish they would just remove that menu-level option – I just lost time because in 17.5 Apprentice the menu-level option silently fails whereas the FBX ROP correctly warns you that FBX export is unsupported in Apprentice.

I fixed the bug on macOS and the Export FBX menu will be disabled in Houdini Apprentice starting in tomorrow's 17.5.245 build.

Pose library error and crash Feb. 21, 2019, 5:11 p.m.

Hello,

FYI that the 'cleanup'error is fixed in tomorrow's 17.0.500 build. I'm not sure if that will also fix the hanging/crashing problem but you can give tomorrow's build a try and see.

Cheers,
Rob
