Presets Manager for OD Tools in Houdini [Indie]

News / 28 June 2024

The following videos introduce the Preset Manager node, an extension for the paid third-party plugin OD Tools. This node is designed to streamline the import of parameters from JSON files, making your workflow more efficient and organized.

Download the Preset Manager node from my GitHub page. 

Introduction to OD Tools and Presets Manager node overview.

In this video, I'll demonstrate the new features: 

  • Edit Button: Opens the selected preset in your default system editor for JSON files.
  • Apply All Presets Button: Easily apply all presets at once.
  • Parameters Filter Field and Panel: You can now filter and select specific parameters to apply to your objects, such as changing only the size of the boxes.
  • Fixed a bug with the width of the Select parameters panel and added a scroll bar to preview selected parameters.
  • Added the toggle to include or exclude presets from loading using the Apply All Parameters button.
