Hi Sandy,

HOM can't do it unfortunately, however you can crudely hack something
together using Hscript commands. I forget the exact command (no Houdini
open) but it is something like view2d.

Scripting Mplay and the IPR VIewer in Houdini is wildly out of date, and
there is a large group of Pipe TDs who weep daily trying to script these
things, including me ;)
