Installing on mac

Post by dougbello »

Hi thank you guys for this amazing tool.

I'm trying to install MOPs on mac os 10.15.4 and sorry for my dumbness... i already copy it to the preferences (packages folder) but i'm not completely clear how to edit the .json file...

right now mine looks like this:

{
"env": [
{
"MOPS": "/Users/dougmacpro/Documents/MOPS"
},
],
"path": "/Users/dougmacpro/Library/Preferences/houdini/18.0/packages/MOPS.json"

}

I also tried the path pointing to houdini instalation and it doesnt work...

I'm using houdini indie 18.0.416

Does it work on macs? am I missing something?

Thanks a lot!
Doug

Hi Doug,

MOPs definitely works on any platform that runs Houdini, so don't worry there.

You want that first "MOPS" definition to point to the exact path on disk where you unpacked the MOPs files... so the folder that contains "otls", "scripts", and so on. The "path" variable below you can leave at the default: just "$MOPS". It's essentially just using the exact path you described above, and adding that to the system path. I have it broken into two separate steps there to make it easier for other MOPs tools to know where the installation directory is.

If you still can't get it to work, just let me know!

Thank you soo much!

Learning Houdini and coming from C4D this tool is like family to me!

Thanks again, I hope it helps someone else also trying to install it!

That is how it looks now in case someone needs it....

{
"env": [
{
"MOPS": "/Users/dougmacpro/Documents/MOPS"
},
],
"path": "$MOPS"

}


Best,
Doug
