Thoughts on mantra Dec. 10, 2017, 5:11 p.m.

Hi very interesting thread. I'm a freelancer with a 13 slaves render farm now still using max+V-Ray and hoping to switch to Houdini + ?. Maybe when v-ray4houdini will be ready I will use it. But I look at what places like Main Road Post [] do with Mantra and I'm really eager to learn Mantra too even though my first test with it were noisy slow and discouraging. I'm happy to read some posts here explaining how it can still be a very useful renderer and we can also couple it with redshift for some jobs were speed is the most important factor.

Will we see something like this coming to Houdini soon? Or can it be done already? []

Orbolt and Apprentice authoring --selling? March 2, 2017, 9:56 a.m.


Just to be sure does this apllies only to Orbolt? If I would like to sell assets on Turbosquid, is it allowed to author them with apprentice or indie. And would the scenes be usable by all potetial buyers using Houdini?

I see that on Turbosquid and Orbolt there are almost no 3D models for sale in houdini format. I would like to author content such a fully rigged (and furred) characters in Houdini and try to sell them to change that but how does it work with all the diffferent licenses? I think the best would be to allow market places like Turbosquid to convert the files to make them usable by all houdini users. now that H16 has more tools for creating and animating character, that would be a wise move.
