PDG Success July 10, 2019, 5:59 p.m.

I'm just scratching the surface with PDG possibilities. As other guys having a hard time to comprehend them (looking forward to some Masterclasses).

But my everyday use of the most simple TOPs with parallel File Cache Sop, parallel IFD baking (TOPs replaced older batch/python tools) and simple wedges with attributes make me hunger for more cores and ram to keep the production velocity. They are awesome!

Although I am still trying to find proper balance on using TOPs outside of Houdini to replace older proprietary (mostly python) tools at the probably more expensive (license cost) run on PDG core.

Run Python Script AFTER HDA cooks nodes May 12, 2019, 10:02 a.m.

Locking node inside an HDA is pretty uncommon workflow.
Probably better and the more reliable way would be stashing (Stash SOP) inside editable subnetwork inside HDA or file cache if it should be shared.

Look how grooming HDAs worked in 16/16.5.
