Houdini Indie Update! 4K renders and multiple machine installs! Feb. 16, 2018, 2:17 p.m.

4k and two machines per licence… These guys mean business.

Camera pan with a "look at" constraint Feb. 1, 2018, 12:46 p.m.

I'm having to move my camera and aim null in a front/side/top view to get the camera to do what I want. The default setup of having to rotate the camera to get it to point at an object is a pain especially if your camera is moving all over the place and the object you're interested is also moving around. If I don't set up an aim null then my perspective camera will orbit around some arbitrary point in space rather than a specific point in space. Being able to lock down a point in space that the camera is looking at AND move the camera around with the ease of view tools is what I and i think Julca are after.

batch rendering multiple hip files (but not all at once) Feb. 1, 2018, 6:59 a.m.

Hi,

thanks to this thread https://www.sidefx.com/forum/topic/16761/ [www.sidefx.com] I managed to get command line rendering working using a.csh file that looks like this:

#!CPROGRA~1/SIDEEF~1/HOUDIN~1.323/bin/csh.exe -f
hrender -e -f 1 25 -v -d /out/mantra1 SPROJECTS/myhipfile.hiplc
hrender -e -f 25 50 -v -d /out/mantra1 SPROJECTS/myhipfile.hiplc
hrender -e -f 50 75 -v -d /out/mantra1 SPROJECTS/myhipfile.hiplc


only problem is they all render at once! Any idea how to get them to run sequentially please?


cheers,
