NIM integration with Deadline in Houdini

Post by pablo »

Hello.
I was testing the NIM integration with Deadline with the Houdini submitter and for some reason in the Pipeline Tools windows I only get the usual Draft tab but not he Project Management one.
NIM event plugin is globally enabled in Deadline.
In Nuke I get the Project Management tab and NIM appears in it as expected.
But not in Houdini.
Is this something wrong in our configuration or simply the NIM integration with Deadline is not supported in Houdini?
Thanks

P

Hi,

I can confirm that I'm seeing the same issue here with the latest version of Deadline not displaying the Pipeline Integrations option in Houdini.
This should be available in Houdini. We don't manage the code base for the Pipeline Integrations. That is done by Thinkbox so if you can drop them a message that would be helpful. I'm going to reach out to the devs directly and see why it would not be appearing there.

Hey Pablo...

I heard back from the guys at Thinkbox and they were not currently specifying NIM to be enabled in Houdini. They are going to add that for the next release. Here's a quick workaround they sent over to get things going without having to wait for the next release:
In the mean-time, they should be able to go into “DeadlineRepository10\submission\Houdini\Main\SubmitHoudiniToDeadline.py” and change the line (~1272 for me)

integrationOptions = ["-ExecuteScript", integrationPath, "-v", "2", "-d", "Houdini", "Draft", "Shotgun", "FTrack", "--path", scenePath]

and add “NIM”

integrationOptions = ["-ExecuteScript", integrationPath, "-v", "2", "-d", "Houdini", "Draft", "Shotgun", "FTrack", "NIM", "--path", scenePath]
