Flipbook in a TOP network

I have a TOP network that's all running fine - wedging a bunch of pyro sims, then doing an openGL render of each, imageMagick montage and then an mp4 of that.

What I would like to do though is use Solaris viewport flipbooks rather than openGL ROP because it looks much better but I don't know how to launch a flipbook, save the files etc in TOPs.

Anyone have any ideas? I suspect it might be a python task and I have a reasonable grasp of python in other areas of Houdini but I've never used it in PDG.

Thanks for reading

There is a Karma ROP, which could get you the same look as the Solaris viewport. Try that.

Hi. Thanks for the reply. I did actually already set it up with a karma ROP TOP - the issue there is that flipbooking looks perfectly adequate for my needs and is about 50X faster...
