Query content inside an asset with OPDEF

Is is possible to use a texture that has been embeded inside an asset? I am doing it succesfully with Mantra by using the opdef command... like this.

opdef:../..?mytexture.rat

But when I do the same for arnold, the render does not even start.

opdef:../..?mytexture.tx

Am I missing something?

Thanks

Probably not supported. I don't see any mention of opdefs in the HtoA code; HtoA would probably have to write the image to disk so that Arnold could access it.

There's probably a texture error (check the Arnold log) and that's why the render does not even start.
