Just getting my feet wet in Houdini and vellum with a caricature I did some time ago.

Editing multiple parameters at once... July 4, 2020, 6:43 a.m.

Yeah that's the whole point of it. I did notice however that it was behaving a little unpredictably with Nulls.
I think it has to do with the parameters of the control nodes referencing the top level parameters of the null node. If I delete the reference it seems to multi edit fine.

But yeah, this has definitely saved me whenever I have to multi edit a bunch of nodes. Travelling into them one by one drives you nuts! Here's a little test, if I select this bunch of nodes and run it, then choose ‘Control’.

You can see in the parameter pane there are a bunch of nodes selected.

See how ya go!

Ha, brilliant. After deleting the connection it works like a charm on Nulls as well.

This will save so much time and frustration. Thanks !

Editing multiple parameters at once... July 3, 2020, 7:57 a.m.

Thanks a lot for the script and explanation Peteski.

I installed the script and it seems to work, but I don't quite get it.

When I use it with multiple objects selected, it's working basically the same as when I select all my objects in the Network/list view and edit them all at the same time. Or am I misunderstanding what the script is supposed to do ?

What I would like to do is to edit the properties that only seem accessible when you go inside a SOP node. So like in my example before, I'd like to edit the “Control > uniform scale” when you go inside the Null SOP node, and not the “Uniform Scale” that is accessible at the root of the SOP node.

I was hoping our script would also access the controls inside multiple SOP nodes, even if you selected the roots.

But it doesn't seem possible to select multiple of those controls at the same time. The closest thing would be to select them one by one in the Spreadsheet Editor. But that's almost as tedious as editing them one by one the Network editor.

But should it also be possible to edit multiple of those properties simultaneously with your script ?

Cheers,

R.
