My goal is to make the Save dialog in Houdini autofill the Name box, because right now our artists have to manually fill in the box with the same name every time to version up. Not only is that tedious, it just leaves a lot of room for errors and confusion so I’m trying to fix it.
I read through the documentation and found “saveas_prefer_version_up”, which sounds like exactly what I want, but I can’t seem to get it to work. I also can’t figure out how it’s working in Maya and Nuke, which already exhibits the correct behavior but don’t have the setting mentioned anywhere in their sections of the .yml…
I’ve tried putting it into my config’s tk-multi-workfiles2 for testing under the asset_step and shot_step (and even our project and global settings), but nothing changes.
Any thoughts on what I’m doing wrong?
