Redshift for Houdini

Post by bsundman » Tue May 30, 2017 9:42 pm

I see that you've added support for Redshift for Maya in the 2.2.2 release. Are there plans to have Redshift support in Houdini? Or is there a way to currently get it working?

Thanks in advance!

You can already ask Afanasy to run any command w/o any "support".
"Support" means some user-friendly gui, service, parser, icon and so on.
As for Houdini, afanasy ROP designed to run any connected ROP, no matter what is it, geo cache, fluids, pyro, particles, mantra, prman, and may be Redshift too, i did not tried.
Have you?

Since you've said it should work, I went through and checked everything to make sure settings are ok. It's now working after unchecking "Render to MPlay" (should have been obvious).

When I didn't uncheck that box, the process would run and say complete without any error but there were no images written to the render directory. When run from Houdini, Render to MPlay would write the files but also open the MPlay window for preview.

Thanks.

Just tried this and Houdini + Redshift + Afanasy seems to work quite well out of the box. Only thing bugging me at the moment is that the progress bar is not updating on each frame while a machine is working on it. Any tips on enabling that functionality?

Thanks.
