Newbie MacOSX Instal Question

This is probably a basic question....
In the manual is says:

.. copy the resulting uncompressed files somewhere.

I unzipped copied the folder with the plugin contents called... Octane_3.08.0.0_Houdini_16.5.268_OSX

to

/Users/XXX/Library/Preferences/Houdini/16.5

so I had...

/Users/XXX/Library/Preferences/Houdini/16.5/Octane_3.08.0.0_Houdini_16.5.268_OSX

I then edited my

/Users/XXX/Library/Preferences/Houdini/16.5/houdini.env

by adding:

HOUDINI_PATH = //Users/XXX/Library/Preferences/Houdini/16.5/Octane_3.08.0.0_Houdini_16.5.268_OSX;&

To the env file

Is that correct or should it be.....


HOUDINI_PATH = /Users/XXX/Application/OctaneRender 3.08_test6.app/Contents/MacOS/octane;&

OR

HOUDINI_PATH = /path/to/octane;/Users/XXX/Application/OctaneRender 3.08_test6.app/Contents/MacOS/octane;

OR


HOUDINI_PATH = /path/to/octane;/Users/XXX/Library/Preferences/Houdini/16.5/Octane_3.08.0.0_Houdini_16.5.268_OSX

Sorry for weird question

Hi,

I'm not sure if it is a good idea copy any plugin folder inside the Houdini preferences directory, but, well, at first glance I suppose that this is not going to be a problem.

So, if you have your plugin folder at /Users/XXX/Library/Preferences/Houdini/16.5/Octane_3.08.0.0_Houdini_16.5.268_OSX your houdini.env file should be:

Code: Select all
HOUDINI_DSO_ERROR = 2
HOUDINI_PATH = "/Users/XXX/Library/Preferences/Houdini/16.5/Octane_3.08.0.0_Houdini_16.5.268_OSX;&"



If this doesn't work, please let me know.

Thanks,
