Instancing and hair rendering within Solaris not working yet?

Hi,


I can't seem to be able to render any instances or hair within Houdini Solaris. Is this something that will be supported at some point soon?


Thanks!


Miguel

Are you using Linux? I just fixed a build issue that affected the instancer and other parts of the render delegate on Linux.


I switched the curves ticket to "In Progress" on GitHub. I'll keep you updated.

Hi @Pal Mezei


Thanks for your reply! Great to know there is a ticket. Any idea of when will you tackle it?


Find attached a simple scene with my instancing issue and a couple of images of what I get with Arnold and with a different renderer.


This is using HtoA 5.2.1 and Arnold 6.0.3.0

Hi Miguel,


we have a ticket for supporting curves in the render delegate : https://github.com/Autodesk/arnold-usd/issues/19 .


Instances of meshes and volumes should be working in Solaris. Could you please share an example scene?


Cheers,

Pal.
