H20 question - could someone describe the advantages of APEX system? Nov. 20, 2023, 11:39 a.m.

My guess for APEX? All Purpose Execution so not still "all purpose"

Quite every node in houdini right know is multithreadead, so if we make a macro function using these nodes (sop 2.0) we can abstract those functions.

Now think about nodes that can be tokenized for Machine Learning... I am crazy or did somebody thought about this?

H20 question - could someone describe the advantages of APEX system? Oct. 29, 2023, 6:12 a.m.

one thing that got my attention is that APEX “All purpose execution”, right now is just working with kinefx, still not all purpose yet as was said during the keynote.
This statement it’s really important.
In my opinion this new framework will help Houdini user experience to close the gap with real-time programs like unreal introducing a new way to interact with tools seamlessly in the viewport.
I am a little bit scared that n the creation of these APEX graphs will be another context that is going to take lot of time to manage but who knows H20 is just around the corner

As always I am really impressed by the effort of sidefx for the innovation being involved in these new technologies

Karma or Redshift Sept. 8, 2023, 12:26 p.m.

Karma for sure
Redshift has become really bad, bugs like features and slow development
