[HTOA] Imagers not updating

Hi,

If I want my imagers to update, I need to restart the render everytime, so there's no point of having imagers.

Houdini 18.5596

HtoA 5.6.3.0


I tested with a really simple setup (grid, sphere, red green and blue lights, the imagers only take effect when restarting the render).

Thanks

Imager behaviour has been improved in 6.0.0.0.

https://www.arnoldrenderer.com/download/

"Improved imagers refresh rate in IPR: Fullframe imagers will now be updated during rendering so that the imager chain result can be previewed before the entire image has been rendered. This replaces the previous behaviour where in some cases we would have to delay the result until after the full-frame had finished "

Thanks Lee Griggs for your quick answer!

Unfortunately I can't change my Arnold version at the moment for production reasons.

I guess I'll leave the imagers for now and play with them once i update Arnold!

Thanks.
