hey guys!
I am currently trying build setup for Rendering or Preview with OpenGL volume simulations inside TOPs.
I am stuck!

so I am have something like that


So… Wedge make me 4 variations with different turbulence of my fluid sim
Partitionbyindex I am actually add this to fix ropfetch1 - order rendering but its still doesn`t works… so the problem what I have been met, because I do have 4 variations and orders is 0,1,2,3 , right?… so but ropfetch always rendering randomize order, like 1 then 3 then 0..etc…. how to fix Idk

so after ropfetch I am wait for all renders, and there another problem, I want render separately each variation of sim to video file, and switch for tile 4 variations on single screen to video file.

P.s ropfetch1 is fetch OpenGl Rop.
Can anyone help me please

Thanks!

Hi, I've attached a HIP file that I believe does what you're describing.

The left branch of the TOP graph creates a video of each wedge variation.

The right branch of the TOP graph creates a single video that is a montage showing all 4 variations together.

Let me know if you have any questions!

Hey Guys I am actually planing make switch between ropgeometry and geometryimport
where ropgeometry make caching to disk
and geometryimport read cache from disk

so for example if I don`t need cache geometry just simply read but still wedging that
so I did example on Sim section,
so because my wedge has 3 variations and geometryimport on upstream receive only 3 work item, and on the end I load only 3 indices with frame 1

but I add generic Generator with amount Feature Animation let`s say my sim would be 24 Frames so I add that to Item count, and link Frame to every indices with % of amount frames

(@pdg_index) % 24 )+ 1

and in my scene I do link
(@pdg_index) % (ch("../range2") )+ 1
so ch(“../range2”) its total animation frames

so its looks like every indices receive 24 frames,and total 72 work items and this is exactly what I need and its looks like similar ropgeometry where its receive total 72 frames to cache!
but can You look at this and tell me is that correct setup ? or maybe its have any other way make it propper?

Updated scene with Cache and Load section

Thanks

hey there I think this is final tool for :

Wedging
Simulation :
-Cache or Pass without Cache
-Read Cache

Render
-Mantra and OpenGl Preview
-Convertion as Jpg

Post Effect
-Overlays Texts
-FPS

Video
-Render in 3 modes :
each wedge as separated video
each wedge as separated video + mosaic(tile everything)
mosaic(tile everything)
-Resize by percentage (if You have Big output mosaic video You can Reduce image size with percentage or exact Image format)

Clean features
-Flush Sim folder on begin
-Flush Render Folder on the begin
-Clean sim on the end
-Clean Render result on the end
-Clean everything and keep just video
-Keep Original OpenGl or Mantra Render as sequence

Fully works with Houdini FX 17.5.173

one more You can run that with cmd its there
