Houdini 13.0 HScript commands

Loads an .optype archive and installs the contained type into a Houdini directory.


  1. optyperead src_file.op_type install_dir

.optype archives describe the user configurable aspects of operators. For built in operators, this includes the label, icon, default parameters, and help text. For HDK created operators it also includes the .so. For Vex and Subnet operators it includes the parameters and script which defines their behavior.

The install directory should be in the HOUDINI_PATH.


optyperead myvexop.optype $HOME/houdini<<version>>
optyperead mysubnet.optype $HSITE/houdini<<version>>
