Houdini Attribute VOP shortcuts

September 4th, 2013 . 0 comments

If you use VOPs in Houdini a lot like I do, you might also find it a bit annoying when using Import/Add Attribute VOPs trying to keep a clean setup with nodes nicely named and local variables added – it can be a lot of typing.

I made a couple of scripts that you can add to your shelf and add keyboard shortcuts to, to automate this process a bit. They’ll pop up a text entry with the attribute name, add the VOP node, and then fill in the relevant parameters based on the attribute. For the import attribute node it also tries to be a bit clever and set the attribute type information by querying the incoming geometry. Enjoy!
