Lesson 10 | Non-GUI Rendering
Published: Dec 20, 2012 for Houdini 12

In lesson 10, we will learn how to set up ROP render dependency trees that include Composite and Script ROPs. Then we will discuss how to use HBatch to distribute the rendering on remote machines through the HQueue Render ROP. We will go into detail about the HQueue Render manager and then discuss how to render on Amazon’s Cloud.

A PDF with the lesson notes is available using the button at the top right just under the embedded video.
