Hi Paul,

I just noticed this created in $HIH:


However I'm on Linux so… I'm guessing some Windows-specific code snuck in?

That's created as a single directory. Also given how big that could potentially be, is $HOME/houdini17.5 the best place for it? Why not $TEMP? I could be missing something though.

17.5.253 Linux

Hi Paul, thanks for adding a linux version!

I'm having some problems trying to get this new version to run on centos7 and houdini 17.5.128 core, I get an error message after every stage similar to this: Step 01_Camera_Init failed! See log for details!

It writes the folder structure in the av_cache folder, and puts the 6 images (mini treemonster example) in the first folder, and then writes 2 blank log files (init_log.txt, init_errorlog.txt) into each following folder. No errors in the console either.

Tried creating new project/hip name to create a clean cache folder, but same thing happens.

Its up and running just fine on win 10 pro, 17.5.258 indie at home.

I've been looking into these issues and they don't seem to be Houdini issues. They appear to be some problems with the binaries themselves. Please submit your issue here if possible: []

I was also getting error about “init_camera failed”. Backed up to version 2.1.0 instead of 2.2.0 and something has changed. But I still have errors. This time it's on step 06_Prepare_Dense_Scene AliceVision…
ERROR: unrecognized option ‘–evCorrection’
ERROR: unrecognized option ‘–computeNormalMaps’
ERROR: unrecognized option ‘–outputMesh’
ERROR: unrecognized option ‘–inputMesh’
ERROR: unrecognized option ‘–useUDIM’

I guess may be that happens because I switched to v 2.1.0 and it doesn't support some features ? But 2.2.0 doesn't work at all.
