New to Houdini and Octane Plug in

Gidday Houdini Users,
I am learning Houdini so this may be a Houdini error question not a plugin question but here goes.

I am assigning the thin lens camera to the custom render target and assigning the render camera and IPR camera to that thin lens camera... but every-time I do an IPR it says it can't find the camera.

Also my IP window is missing all the octane tabs.

Any ideas

Many Thanks

Peter

I am running Houdini 16.5.268 and Octane 3.08 test 6 on Mac OSX 10.13.1 on a GTX 1080

Hi,

The camera object that you must set in the ROP is the Houdini camera, not the Octane camera node used in the render target, that is used only to configure the camera properties. Perhaps you should check the brief tutorial available in the docs to know the basics of the plugin workflow:

https://docs.otoy.com/HoudiniH/HoudiniP ... eScene.htm

Be aware that in OSX the IPR works inside the Houdini MPlay application, not using a custom window.

Thanks,
-Juanjo

Sounds good I'll review the tuts more carefully.

Thanks
