Arnold shaders not showing in Houdini SHOP Network

Hey,


I'm having problems to deal with Arnold. I can't find most of the shaders inside of arnold_vopnet. I was trying to use Standard Surface shader and it is simply not there. I don't know if it is a common thing, but I'm quite lost here.

Thanks in advance.

Something wrong in your houdini.env file or json file, maybe you have Renderman conflicting with Arnold!

That means the environment (eg houdini.env) is set up incorrectly.

How do you open the scene files? By double-clicking them? That causes problems.

Otherwise, check houdini.env

My houdini.env looks like this. arnold.png


I tried to open the .hip file by right clicking on it and the shaders are still not there.

Thanks.

Use File > Open in Houdini.

And can you get Help > About Houdini > Show Details ?
