Complex Multiparm: only recompute the needed cycle# Jan. 30, 2024, 11:39 a.m.


I have been working on a massive OpenWorld HDA for my team, which will assemble many other bricks, with organic logic behavior and rules driven by the artist.
Some of my multiparm have 3 levels of recursion with dozens of setting each.

- Have you been using method like Cacheif to only recompute the needed loop elements or other methods?
- I guess most of you will have choose PDG to handle the check that , straight out of the box right?
Will you convert the multiparm to a Dictionnary with Python, then to some global var to different HDA processors?

Hope it makes sense, happy new year!

Terrain UV and texture export Jan. 16, 2024, 5:26 a.m.

Considering im building with python to texture a Heighfield , how will you sample in COP the result of the texture layering of my x diffuse map injected with the material builder? As houdini apparently can't handle more than 10, each time i have more than 9 differents texture materiax index , i have to create another pile of 9 and build the mask alpha to blend...

How could i bake the all thing?
