AMD GPUs? Experiences? Feb. 5, 2019, 12:56 p.m.

Hi brian,

Nice to hear this information.
Did you made also the contact to SESI when houdini has native USD that your plugin will work when they ship the software?

Parameter collector in one node/UI ? Jan. 28, 2019, 6:44 p.m.

In the HDA parameter editor you can drag and drop the parameters from the other nodes.

You can use the light linker for all light setup.

Amd ProRender integration? Jan. 9, 2019, 9:28 a.m.

Yeah, agree completely! AMD Pro Render is quite buggy and chrashes all the time as it is while not having most of the features one expect from a renderer when using Houdnini (no volumes for starters…).
But since no one seems to be able to write GPU renderers using anything but CUDA I assume the chances are rather slim. Let's hope though!

Cycles render and lux render uses opencl. It would be nice when mantra can get more render power with gpu but it shouldn't reduce the functionality and thats a big challenge.

It takes me wonder how the renderman team made there soulution for the upcoming version.
