mantra3:could not open the script or pipe?

Recommended Posts

I tried use mantra3 in Houdini 6 for rendering atmosphere - halo, why it always says:

"Could not open the script or pipe

Could not write out to the script or pipe

Failded to complete render: mantra1 "

Is it because my houdini 6 is non-commercial?

plz help..

thanks

Hi there,

mantra3 is no longer supported in Houdini 6.0 and also, COPs, MOPs and TOPs.

Cheers!

rendering atmosphere - halo

-- not for atmosphere ,but for fog -halo.

mantra3 is no longer supported in Houdini 6.0 and also, COPs, MOPs and TOPs.

-- but why i can find it in Mantra render command?

if it is not supported, how to render fog - halo which uses omantra(mantra v3) before???

Yeah, SESI should hide the ROP now..

Try the VEX Lit Fog shader - it'll work for you.

not sure how to do .

i always get a render filled with fog instead. I want to make a halo for a sphere, eg a lighbulb halo..

can some give me a simple example? :P

thank you

hmm... iam not sure on this, but if one is using an atmosphere obj wouldnt it be for the worldspace and not local to, say, a light bulb?

i was looking in a light object, and there is a parameter called atmosphere...never played with the stuff, but it looks like something you are after.
