updated & complete H9 docs? March 26, 2008, 4:49 p.m.

I am new to houdini. I went through the training video in Learning Tutorial. Then, I found the training stuff + houdini info on the internet are mostly obsolete. If I search the H9 Help page for an answer, the contents listed in results are generally incomplete, just few words like glossary, no examples and howto steps.

Can someone tell me where I can find the information how to make Renderman Shaders working in H9, step by step, w/o going to Houdini training classes?


How to apply a Prman shader to light in H9 March 25, 2008, 4:51 p.m.

Houdini 9 has two sorts of lights now, one general called the template light and the “old” houdini lights. If you want to add shaders to your lights use the template light (TAB -> lihgt template). Go over to the Render tab for your shaders.

For Houdini 9.1.x, I am trying to use a home-made Renderman light shader in a scene.

I did the steps in Houdini Lighting:Light Shader 1, 2, 3. But, I could not see MY shader interface UP, except the ones from the Light Template. My shader.otl has different sets of input parameters from the template. How should I bring MY shader UI up?

Thanks in Advance,
