A version incrementation and file saving script for Houdini.

  • Saves the current file with an increased version number or creates a new version suffix if it does not exist (e.g filename_v001.hip).
  • Includes options for the setting the playback frame and update mode of the saved file (without altering the open file)
  • Uses regex for accurate pattern matching

Suggested Use

  • Create a new Houdini shelf tool and copy the contents of into the Script tab
  • Adjust the settings at the top of the script to suit your preferences
  • Assign a new hotkey to the tool such as Ctrl+Alt+S

(Future Work: Look into the presave/postsave python callback scripts which are new in 16.0.557)
