fatal error: segmentation fault


Recommended Posts

that's right, Arnold doesn't support heaps of stuff in Houdini. with packed geo, it attempts to unpack it before rendering, which cancels out any benefits offered by it. On top of it, agents are kind of a special stuff tailored to be efficient with Mantra / Stylesheets. Stylesheets are neither fully supported by Arnold, if I'm not mistaken. 

In general, I can't recommend using Arnold in Houdini - it's a lot of pain all the time.

We render crowds using Mantra as that still seems to be the best option with least amount of headache. In the future, we count on rendering crowds with Karma. 

cheers. D.
