Unpacking Houdini Files

Just stumble across this thread

It took me some time to figure it out because standard “hexpand” utility doesn’t quite work on Windows. I also fail to solve “Permission denied” error discoursed in the thread.

Finally, I just use “hcpio.exe” utility. It seems work pretty well.

Here is the command.

“C:\Program Files\Side Effects Software\Houdini 14.0.201\bin\hcpio.exe” -idI F:\Projects\test_prj_01\halway
