Is there any option in Mantra, to skip (existing) rendered frames? Sept. 16, 2019, 8:50 a.m.

Hi Masoud.
If I understood correctly you want to skip some frames?
If I am right it simple, when you “turn on” RENDER FRAME RANGE you will see START - END -INC normally INC is set to 1 if you put it set to 2 and it will drop 1 frame like this 1-3-5-7 etc or you can put “1.5” it is not a kidding you can use float.
If it is not what you looking for sorry :-)

Hi Masoud can you explain with more detail what is “a complete 3D software”?
Is a little difficult explain what Houdini is capable without some direction ;-)
After you tell to us a little bit more about what you want probably a lot of user can help you.

Can you use it as your main 3D software, without using MAYA, 3DSMAX or C4D? I mean Modeling, Texturing, Animating, Rigging, Material, Scene layout…


Hi Masoud let do it in small parts OK? ;-)
Maya is strong in character animation
C4D is very good to Motion Graphic in 3D
Blender is very capable to non organic modeling and cartoon with sculpting
Mari or Substance Painter for Texturing
Maya, Blender, Houdini can Rigging very well
Maya, Blender, Houdini can use material but Houdini is better in procedural Material

The Big Question is what you want to do and how much effort you will put in Houdini?
But a lot of people use Zbrush with Maya, a lot of people use Maya and Houdini and so on.
You can do a lot of work in Houdini if you use Houdini Indie.
If you have no budge my suggestion is Blender + Houdini + Substance Painter -> if you need more suitable render time + Redshift 3D or Octane Render.
My answer is not Yes or Not why? Simple because every tool have a place.
If you like character animation and have plan to use a lot of motion capture? Maybe Maya will be good for you.
But if you will do character animation with key frame and do not have hurry you can use Houdini and Mplay I tryed it and liked a lot.
The most important thing is to know what you want to do.
The SideFX is a company tha listen their costumers.
Houdini have became more and more friendely and powerful to be honest you can put more effort in different areas and it will be good to you.
Have a nice day.
