The OpenCL SOP and DOP allow you to take advantage of your GPU to do computations. This Masterclass walks through how to use the OpenCL SOP. It also addresses when you should use OpenCL, and when you should use VEX.

    The headache was worth it. Awesome content here....makes me want to look for parallel algorithms to implement.

    Thanks for letting me know right up front that I should use VEX instead of OpenCL. I did not watch the rest of the video.

    Suddenly I never want to touch OpenCL, lol. VEX all the way!

    OpenCL is actually made much easier in Houdini than I thought it would be. Thanks for making this!
