I cant get camera motion blur working using H19 and Karma.
Ive got motionblur enabled in the camera effects of the Karma rop.
In the camera node Ive tried setting Shutter Time to 0.5 and 1.0
No motion blur in the Karma render to mplay or disk.

Thanks for your suggestion.
My current scene is just an old style hip scene with geometry, lights and camera nodes.
I have not explored LOP networks.
I guess Im going to have to learn all that in order add a Cache Lop.
You won't get blur in karma without any time samples. Normally this is fine because cameras come from usd files with all the time samples, and not your hip file where there would only be one time sample in existence at any given time. In LOPs, the cache node exists to force creation of multiple time samples. Without this cache node, motion blur is not possible for cameras created in the scene.
The Karma ROP creates everything from in the scene. Unless it has a cache node inside, it will not have any motion blur. In the current version (19.0.455) of Houdini, it does.
SideFX recently posted a video on how to enable motion blur with Karma. Watch the whole series to see how to migrate a scene to Solaris as well.

makrotius thanks for the link it's focused-on Karma and motion blur.
Homing in on my issue.
OneBigTreeI don't see any issues with expressions
If you have a calculated rotation (like an expression based on $F) the Karma ROP viewport will not render motionblur for that rotation. If it is keyframed, it will.
there are really no expressions in usd, so whatever you use to control the LOP node's parameters with, it will store just resolved values in usd and hence the value clip produced by Cache LOP should be identical and MB should not produce different results
the only issue can be the actual expression itself
be careful with $F as that's integer frame, use $FF to make sure your values are continuous
