Just wondering since it's around that time.
I'm about to build a muscle rig and trying to move away from redshift so I'm excited for the new muscle system to move to beta and more features for karma XPU

Game changer in 19.5:
David says about blendshapes support in topotransfer, and a quad-remesher, as the game changer.
I can't wait it.

I guess it's a sooner-or-later, but I really hope Karma XPU and MaterialX get production-ready in H19.5.

A quad-rememsher would be awesome!

That's the main reason I want an update! Besides the character stuff. I'm want to rebuild my material library into MaterialX materials. The last thing after that is hoping Blender starts supporting it as well.

Wasn't there a roadmap in the H19 presentation?
Mid 2022 for XPU beta
End 2022 / beginning 2023 XPU production state.

Edit here the ressource:

I'm very curious about the new quad-remesher, since Instant Mesh SOP is not 100% reliable for automated workflows.

I am using an old pentium g4560 cpu, works no problem with h18.5.
But crashes when I turn on the display flag with many nodes inside h19.
Tried to disable avx and update graphic driver, did not work.
I wish they could fix old cpu support, otherwise I will have to buy a new pc.

It would be good if they changed the whole approach to houdini the u.i & u.x and make it fit solaris and karma in an elegant way and declutter the whole thing.

they need to make Houdini fun to use, and just adding more tools while keeping the program looking and feeling like 1990
won't do.

just my two cent

I know some old die hard fans won't like this idea but I am talking about younger generations of artist that want to have speed on their side.

It helps to be more specific with feedback like this. What is "more fun to use"? Post an example of a comparative UI/workflow, or at least describe it.

When you say "speed", what aspects of the Houdini UI/UX slows you down? How can it be improved? What app does it better?

When you say "looking and feeling like 1990", here's an image of the UI from 1990:


I'm sure we can agree that it doesn't look or feel like that today, so describing how you'd actually like to see it become more modern would help.

I'd like to see the viewport laggyness finally being taken care of. Such as:
Oftentimes even with an isolated object painting can be really laggy for no aparrent reason on a threadripper with more than enough vram and ram. Why would a viewport reset or restarting the program be a solution for this?
There are a lot more viewport snappyness and responsiveness issues than this one but i did not take the time to develop a list with them each time they pop up, yet they do too often.

Hi all. I would like to see a 3d tracking system like in blender or even better with advanced composition tools. It's great when everything is in one application.

All I would like to see is Karma XPU with Shadow Matte capability just like every other renderer out there.
