RenderMan for Houdini fixes are intergrated to Houdini's Daily Builds.


For those of you new to Renderman 21, please take a look at the changes here.

Bug Fixes

  • Ramp parameter now outputs the number of knots entered instead of the default 2 knots.


Bug Fixes

  • Menu item selected is now correct for item that does not start with 0 or has skipping number. This affects the following shaders:
    • PxrSurface, PxrRoundCube, PxrDispTransform, PxrDispScalarLayer, PxrDispVectorLayer, PxrRamp, and PxrNormalMap.

Bug Fixes

  • Parameters inside the same group as the ramp parameters are now processed correctly in and
  • ri_procreentrant's default changed to 0 to match the renderer's default and emits int instead of bool.

Bug Fixes

  • Added ri_diceminlength and ri_diceminlengthspace in Rendering Properties.

Bug Fixes

  • Added interface to Omnidirectional Stereo projection which renders images in a format suitable for VR viewing.

Known Limitations

RenderMan for Houdini

  • Light filter linking is not supported yet.  This is due to Houdini limitation.
  • Cannot resize or rotate the dome environment map in the viewport.  This is due to Houdini limitation.
  • Rect light texture orients incorrectly in the viewport as the render though the render is correct.  This is due to Houdini limitation.
  • IPR is not supported.  This is due to Houdini/SOHO limitation.
  • Crop window does not work in 'it'.
  • Re-render button does not work in 'it'.
