  1. Render ROPs in background

    Hello! I have a question concerning ROPs, because I can't seem to figure out how to render them "in the background" as you can do with other write-to-disk SOP-nodes or Mantra-render-nodes. I really like this options as it gives me the ability to still work in the same scene without having to open another window. My particular case is that I have a flip sim and want to render two caches out at the same time (one fluid cache, one surface), frame-by-frame dependent on each other. If, as I expect, you say that there is no way to do this, because of the dependencies, then I'm fine with that. I just wanted to ask if I missed some usual Houdini-black-magic. Thanks!
  2. Trying out Arnold for the first time in Houdini and can't seem to find a way to render in the background.? The only button on the Arnold node is "Render to disk". I've searched the Arnold docs, and this forum and can't find anything relating to this. Anyone know how to get the same functionality as in the mantra render node that has the "Render to disk in Background" button.? I'm sure it's something simple, but can't find a button anywhere on the Arnold node to allow this. Thanks for any info E.
  3. Fairly new to houdini.. Is there a way to keep working on your scene whilst generating a flipbook? Having to wait every time really slows the workflow. Coming from Cinema4D; it has an external preview viewer which runs in the background and allows you to keep working - any such thing in Houdini?
  4. ..., where can I change them? Are they available somewhere? Thanks!
