Hi,

We recently moved from Houdini 17.5 to Houdini 18.0 and we are getting error messages when trying to override node parameters with a parameter file.
However, it works if we replace the parameters python expression as following :
__import__('numerion.parmfile', globals(), locals(), , 0).eval(pwd(), expandString('$CH'))
↓ ↓ ↓
__import__('numerion.parmfile', globals(), locals(), , 0).eval(pwd(), hou.text.expandString('$CH'))

Is this a known issue ?

Cheers,
Romain

Hi Romain,

Thanks so much for bringing this to our attention.
We have adapted the code to work in 18.0 as well and will ship the fix with the next release.

I have also updated the Known Issues list: www.numerion-software.com/index.php/foru...d-23rd-march-2020#77

Hi Sebastian,

Thank you for your answer.
Could you tell me when do you plan to release the next version ?
I need to know if I can afford to wait for it or if I should think about a temporary workaround.

Cheers,
Romain

Hi Romain,

There is currently no fixed date for the next release, which means it'll be at least a few weeks until the next release.
However, we could provide you with a one-off build for the specific H18.0 version that you are using.

Since you already found the solution to fix the bug, I am wondering if maybe I missed something?
Is there a reason why you are not able to apply your suggested fix to your H18.0 build?

Cheers,
Sebastian

Hi Sebastian,

Even if I know why the fileOverride parameter is obsolete in Houdini 18.0, it is still unusable as it is.
In our automatic workflow, we were loading presets using this parameter in previous Houdini versions.
I asked for when was the next release, because if by any chance it happened to be soon, I could just have waited for it.
Anyway, I am now writing a temporary fix, so it's all good :)

Cheers,
Romain

Hi Romain,

If you go to the respective file in the Houdini user folder (for me C:\Users\Sebastian\Documents\houdini18.0\python2.7libs\numerion) and replace the parmfile.py with the one attached, does that solve the issue for you?
This file should work for H16.5, H17.0, H17.5 anfd H18.0.

Cheers,
Sebastian
