  1. Hello, I was stumped last saturday on how to make the geometry import TOP to just process 1 work item at a time. Im doing some particle advection workflow, where i made multiple sourcing variation to fill the gaps so it renders smooth. but after I finished the wedges for the fillers, I made a partition from frames then feed it to geometry Import to merge the partition contents to one geometry per frame before feeding it to a mantra TOP, howerver, the processing in geometry import TOP are starting 8 workitems simultaneusly, right on the bat, which means 8 frames of every wedge i got, i got 10 million particles per wedge per frame. I would rather have it to process 1 partition at a time instead, like how geometry output TOP does when in batch mode. PS I already setup my scheduler to single and 1 slot per workitem. I even added the local parm single, like what mantra TOP has by default, and I'm also on houdini 18.5 at work. anyone can shed me some hope please.

    Hello pips, I was puzzled all night trying to make Vex volume procedural to work in Karma, with a most basic setup of loading and sampling a density field inside LOP material library, Im starting to wonder if its supported, I swear I saw somewhere that volume procedurals are a go.
