Combining MP4s using PDG May 15, 2023, 10:40 a.m.

I was able to combine them as I want, the last piece is that the file output is not the mp4s combined but are just the clips.
If I enable the concat expression it throws an error "unknown keyword 'ftypisom'" And looking online it is about the concatenation of two mp4

Combining MP4s using PDG May 15, 2023, 6:49 a.m.

Hey everyone, I have 3 videos mp4 with 2 variations each. I am trying to concatenate them in all the possible variations (maintaining the audio too)

I'm pretty sure is possible using the FFmpeg encode but how? Tried a lot of different things but they all require images sequences

Im trying like this, filtering the videos with the tag in their name (a,b,c..)

Any rumours of Houdini 19? Oct. 15, 2021, 10:24 a.m.

- Karma ROP for instant rendering of non USD Scenes -

karma working in obj context?

Looks like something like that, I guess we will have to wait until next week for some answers

SideFX confirmed that Karma ROP is just a wrapper for the Scene Import LOP into USD, since Karma is a USD render engine. I'm assuming they invested quite heavily in the Scene Import LOP having parity with OBJ context for H19?

I interpreted the Karma ROP like "Yes, it's still based on USD but we take care of it for you. The conversion is in the background as ifds for Mantra". Thought it was a method to make the transition smoother to the stage context.

Ouch. I was hoping for too much
