Hi,

I am probably blind, but where exactly is the shader view in 16.5?

In the docs it is mentioned as a pane type, but when creating a new pane the shader view is not present (I have composite view, render view, material palette, etc. etc….but no shader view)?

Many thanks in advance!

Hello…? Surely this is an easy question?
Or, does not SideFX frequent the forums?

What are you looking for? “Shader view”?
Are you looking for the “mat” context?
The place to design shaders?
Your question seems like a simple question but the “houdini” language is sometimes not as simple.
maybe this helps: https://vimeo.com/215079619 [vimeo.com]
and read: http://www.sidefx.com/docs/houdini/shade/build.html [www.sidefx.com]

this has been removed in H16.
The documenatation is just not updated because I guess almost nobody will use houdini for look dev in the state it is.

Thanks for the replies!
No experience with the shader view since I'm just starting out with Houdini now, but it sounded convenient.
Anyway, will just rig my own eval scene for shader work.
