i'm the impatient kind.
I never can't wait to press this render button.
If you try to render geometry before computation is complete at sop level this will lead to crash.
Making sence of course.
But i can't teach myself to be less impatient.
Maybe you can code some safe guard instead...would be great.
I've lost so many work and time because of this i will be so happy if you could fix this problem.
Something telling octane to wait houdini finishing his own work before getting into the party.
