  1. Hi, I am new to mantra (I'm a vray user) and just wanted to find where are the new features that are supposed to be in Mantra in H16 ( I have now 16.0.634 apprentice installed.) In the road map they were talking about new adaptive sampling in H16. But I can't find it anywhere. The funny things is that I see an adaptive checkbox in the rendering=>sampling tab under refraction quality in H15.5.632 but it is nowhere in H16... Also in H16 doc ( http://www.sidefx.com/docs/houdini/nodes/out/ifd#sampling_tab )they mention " Enable Indirect Sample Limits " (maybe just a new name for adaptive sampling) supposed to be right where the adaptive sampling box was in 15.5, but I don't see it in H16. also in the H16 What’s new in Shading, and rendering page ( http://www.sidefx.com/docs/houdini/news/16/rendering ) they mention "Fine-grained Quality sliders on the Mantra node’s Rendering ▸ Shading tab let you increase sampling quality for components (diffuse, SSS, reflection, refraction) individually." But I don't see any fined-grained quality sliders... I hope to see these soon cause in my early tests mantra seems really slow and I hope those settings could accelerate it a lot cause that's what V-Ray uses (among others things) to speed up rendering.
