Installing Redshift in Houdini

» »

While Redshift is automatically installed for other DCC's, it has to be manually installed for Houdini.

Luckily, installing Redshift in Houdini isn't as hard as it first may seem.

  1. First off all, turn off Houdini.

  2. Locate your houdini.env file, usually located in: C:/Users/[username]/Documents/[houdiniVersion]/

  3. Then add the following lines:

    HOUDINI_DSO_ERROR = 2 PATH = "C:/ProgramData/Redshift/bin;$PATH" HOUDINI_PATH = "C:/ProgramData/Redshift/Plugins/Houdini/${HOUDINI_VERSION};&"

  4. Now start Houdini again, and you should be good to go.
