Any update on the Houdini Solaris plug-in?
Working with Juanjo and Mark G (our Hydra dev) to push this to our Houdini users shortly. We are just wrapping up parity validation with Karma's various lights at the moment.
Congrats for the release,but....Guys you did it back in November and doing it again now:
"Hydra Render Delegate for Houdini 18
Octane 2020.1 for Houdini 18 can operate as a fully functional Hydra Render delegate for the Solaris viewport, with support for USD preview surface and lights exposed by the Hydra API."
Please don't advertise features that are not out, not even an announced alpha/beta.. specially when we have been waiting 6 months for them,its frustrating,I really like Octane and you guys have been doing a great work implementing features,but statements like this makes it difficult to recomend as a serious alternative render back in the office.
Also, could you at least elaborate more on what fully functional means?will it have support for primvars?LPEs? support for curves/fur?mblur?will it support houdini new lighting controls to lock speck/diffuse and shadows for the lights??we just have a screenshot...
Thanks again guys for the hard work.
