Solaris - Arnold Render Settings HDA

Hi,

 

It appears like when rendering out a render job when using the "Arnold Render Settings" HDA, the "RGBA" AOV (beauty) is rendered out as "RGBA" which is not registered directly in Nuke like it used to be.

The name needs to be"rgba" for Nuke however I'm unable to rename or add an optional name as this doesn't work (change the name result) which I suspect might be an issue with this HDA.

On top of that, I'd like to request and follow-up on other changes:

  1.  As in other posts, the ability to add custom AOV & LightGroups.
    Surely this is a fairly quick adjustment to the HDA from your end?

  2. I would highly recommend defaulting the Filter type for the common AOV to a more "correct" setting. The Arnold teams between Maya and Houdini seem to differ in settings and whether they are defaulted or not. These settings can make or break certain AOV and for a new user to Arnold these should be set to a better default settings for the AOV. The documentation or warnings about what filter you choose have become lacking in the docs.

  3. Arnold appears to use the Image Resolution from the Render Product node with Husk I believe while it uses the resolution from the Render Settings node for Kick. It would be ideal if this was a consistent behavior.

 

 

All the best,

Amwilkins

I was just about to create a post but found this thread, also had the same issue with rgba in nuke using htoa-6.2.3.2. Where do I see that log and status of tickets? please @Stephen.Blair

Hi, news about it? There's a way to do what @am_wilkins suggested in HtoA6.2.4.0?

Thankyou

There's no news on that ticket, it's still open.
(Tickets are in an internal ticketing system)

You could use the standard Render Vars, Render Product LOPS, together with the Arnold Standard Render Vars and the [non-Arnold] Render Settings.

Around 7-8 months later, but still no adjustments to the "Arnold Render Settings" HDA?

Nothing listed above is solved. Is there anyone working on HTOA anymore?

Yes. You can check the HtoA release note for the last year. We're still working on HtoA.
