Solid Angle Houdini To Arnold 1.14.4 for Houdini | 293.0 mb
Solid Angle has released version 1.14.4 of Arnold for Houdini (or HtoA). This plug-ins provides a tight bridge to the Arnold renderer from within the standard Houdini interface. This release uses Arnold 188.8.131.52 and OpenVDB 4.0.0.
Arnold is an advanced cross-platform rendering library, or API, developed by Solid Angle and used by a number of prominent organizations in film, television and animation, including Sony Pictures Imageworks. It was developed as a photo-realistic, physically-based ray tracing alternative to traditional scanline based rendering software for CG animation.
Arnold uses cutting-edge algorithms that make the most effective use of your computer's hardware resources: memory, disk space, multiple processor cores, and SIMD/SSE units.
The Arnold architecture was designed to easily adapt to existing pipelines. It is built on top of a pluggable node system; users can extend and customize the system by writing new shaders, cameras, filters and output driver nodes, as well as procedural geometry, custom ray types and user-defined geometric data. The primary goal of the Arnold architecture is to provide a complete solution as a primary renderer for animation and visual effects. However, Arnold can also be used
HtoA 1.14.4 Release notes:
- This release fixes a regression on Windows for Houdini Indie 16.
