I downloaded the PBR shader demo version to try it out (with plans for purchase). I get error messages when I try to load this asset. Is it not compatible with Houdini 16.5?

Isn't the version compatibility mentioned somewhere on the download page?

And add a link next time, so we know what shader you talk about. There are a handful of PBR shaders in Orbolt…

From the orbolt page:
Compatibility: Houdini 13 to Houdini 15.5

Most 3D programs have a way of importing older models (to prevent obsolescence). Is that not the case with Houdini? Was the mantra shader system changed substantially between version 15 and 16.5?

Yes, there were big changes in shading and workflow. As well as the new /mat context.

Maybe you can contact the one who created the shader, to see if a 16.x version is useful or not?
