Hi there! I was running into the same issue..
Houdini Octane main plugin (octane rop) is binding to the slave therefore making it unavailable to PDG/hython.exe octane. You should turn off network rendering in the octane rop network options, or:
Open Texport and run a command prior to running PDG.
- Code: Select all
This turns off network rendering/unbinds the slave from the main octane plugin (octane rop) in Houdini and makes it available for PDG/hython.exe octane to use
tested using Octane_2020.2.0.4_Houdini_18.5.462_Win64
Thanks to Juanjgon for the time you took to help me troubleshoot this!
