Custom Actions in loader

(How) is it possible to add a custom Action to a DCCs Loader context menu? (Houdini for example)


Hello Tobias,

You can achieve that by implementing a loader plugin.
Here are some examples:

These are some actions. Notice they don’t actually load any thing in the scene but they still inherit plugin.HoudiniLoader

This loads FBX representations to the scene.

You will most likely want to expose them as separate addon to not to have your own fork of ayon-core.

Your addon can contain logic where these loader plugins will appear (in which hosts), see ayon-openrv/client/ayon_openrv/ at 723463e97fc37332f0c5f2872c1b5f4ca2b460cb · ynput/ayon-openrv · GitHub for inspiration.
