Hi. dreamworks are going to opensource their renderer latter this year. The promo shows it in Houdini.

Look super exciting. They didn't show it rendering in LOPs / Solaris though but in /obj context. I wonder if the open source version is also so nicely integrated

Somewhere in the announcement (text) they mentioned a hydra delegate.

This can, naturally, still blow up in all sorts of ways

Yes, that's why I expected to see a Stage context somewhere. I'm still trying to get used to the whole Solaris stuff so I would really love to see Moonray open source integrated into Houdini like an oldskool renderer not only a Hydra delegate.

At least until I'm confident with Solaris
