Karma Cryptomatte issues in Houdini 19.5.403 Dec. 1, 2023, 3:18 p.m.

Ok I have worked out this issue for me.

If you want to use Cryptomatte from Karma in Fusion, this works for me.

1 - you have to have the ```husk --exrmode 0``` in the Render Command as Anton81 mentioned above.
2 - you have to bring in your exrs into Fusion with a Loader node. It wont work for whatever reason unless you do that. I didnt discover this straight away as I use Resolve+Fusion, not the standalone. So the input nodes are set up for you. Delete them and use a loader instead. Dragging exr's into Fusion also doesnt work.

Ok, this was a real mission, but its working for me now. Hope this helps someone else.

Karma Cryptomatte issues in Houdini 19.5.403 Dec. 1, 2023, 2:39 p.m.

Hmm, I'm also trying to set this up today and having issues. Even with the ```husk --exrmode 0``` mentioned above, I'm not getting it to work in Fusion.
I'm also not getting any joy in COPs though. It looks correct in MPLAY and the renderview, but not when I extract the mask in COPs.

If I use the Karma Crypto Matter node however, I can get useful data for COPs at least. But nothing that works in Fusion.

Anyone solve this?

Thank you! Its all Redshift. I found it pretty easy to use, fast and really stable for the most part.
