Ability to dock Octane RenderView Inside Hou RenderView.

Hi Guys ,

It would be nice to be able to dock the floating octane renderview , inside the houdini renderview.
We can use the renderview but without the extra button.
Having both would be nice.

Cheers

Hi,

Yes, I agree that this could be a great feature. Unfortunately, this is something not possible now without changing the current IPR window API from the raw OpenGL window used now to Qt, something that I want to do at some point along this Octane 4.x dev cycle.

Thanks,

Hi juanjo,

I re-up this feature, because this one would be really useful for people working with only one screen.
Houdini is great but use a lot of space to display all his UI elements ( spreadsheet, node graph, attribute panel ... )
Thus there is only few space to put octane viewer, and i am always minimising / maximising the UI all days, and it's kind of a PITA.

That would be just great if we could dock the panel in houdini UI.
Have you any idea for the ETA of this feature ?

Cheers

Hi,

I want to work on it along this year, as part of the new Qt5 based IPR window.

Thanks,

Sorry, this feature is still in development. All the work related to the constant core new features and updates and the support/bugs fixing is not leaving more free time to work on it, but I still want to release at least a first plugin version including this feature before the end of the year.

Thanks,
