Houdini Library egLib rereleased

I just rereleased my own Houdini-Library which consists of some python scripts as well as Houdini HDAs which may be useful from time to time. IĀ“ll maybe break down some of this tools in the near future on this site. Heres the ReleaseNotes on the Readme from Github for now:

Features:

Provided Scripts

This library provides a set of Scripts:

  • autofocus.py – does as it says
  • connectPoints.py – connects polyPoints
  • flipBook.py – makes a Flipbook from the current camera without croppin/scaling
  • hide.py – toggles hide afrom selected nodes from viewport
  • IN.py – Green Null with handy rename panel provided; appends to selected node (SOP), shortcut recommended
  • incrSave.py – save with date, name, version – iterates version(if necessary also date) on each save
  • makePlanarX.py – Flattens pointSelection in World X
  • makePlanarY.py – Flattens pointSelection in World Y
  • makePlanarZ.py – Flattens pointSelection in World Z
  • makeQCam.py – make a cam with QFrustum and QRig – needs qLib
  • measure.py – make a measure node from selected objects – if non selected create nulls instead
  • merge.py – merge selected with merge node (SOP) – Shortcut highly recommended (M works fine)
  • multiImporter.py – import multiple files (.bgeo, .abc, .fbx,…) into OBJ – Creates a OBJ_node with names for each selected file
  • out.py – Black Null with handy rename panel provided; appends to selected node (SOP); shortcut recommended
  • replaceString.py – search ALL nodes in the scene for all string-parms and replace a string if found
  • resetTrans.py – reset Transforms to zero (Components selectable) – OBJ
  • trajectory.py – create a visible trajectory for the selected object (OBJ) – needs Qlib installed
  • align.py – matches transform of 2 nodes in OBJ

Provided HDAs

  • PolyCapFix – Fixes Holes
  • VolumeDisplacement.hdalc – Does VolumeDisplacement
  • VoronoiTransform.hdalc – Breaks things and Transforms Pieces
  • AtomArray.hdalc – As it says
  • compressvdb.hdalc – save space with vdbs
  • compressvolume.hdalc – save space with vdbs
  • DeleteOutsidePieces.hdalc – delete pieces which are not on the inside
  • DigitalGrowth2D.hdalc – Line-Growth Solver
  • EdgeDisplacement.hdalc – EdgeDisplacement (PolyEdges)
  • LineGlow.hdalc – Shader
  • MacBethMantra.hdalc – a MacBethChart for Mantra
