Turn On Houdini Auto Save By Default
You probably know why you are here...
Create a text file, name it 123.py and paste
import hou hou.appendSessionModuleSource('''hou.hscript("autosave on")''')`
in the file.
Put it in your
Documents>houdini18.x>scripts folder (create one if it doesn't exist) and there you go. I've never lost more than 2 minutes of work.
For the lazy: Download my "123.py" (yes it rhymes on purpose).
