Senior Software Developer for Side Effects Software, Pavlo Penenko shows how Houdini engine 2’s remote procedure call (RPC) can alleviate some of the dependancy problems and extending its reach in a pipeline environment.
This masterclass describes a new RPC feature introduced in Houdini Engine 2.0, called Thin Client.
The RPC is a new feature with the HE2, called the Thin Client. It can extend the reach of the Engine, by moving simulations to a separate server process. You can use multiple concurrent Houdini simulations and distribute the calculations on the network, and integrate HE2 with hosts on a wide variety of platforms.
