@Tanghe, once you extract Moonray from the docker container you can remove it.

thats great ! Id really need xpu though. also if i understand correctly youd need the contailner running for it to work. And thats an overhead Id rather not have.

Hi @Tange,

I have a guide on how to build Moonray for Houdini using Docker here:

This package only builds the standalone version of Moonray using the system dependencies.

Anny chances on getting a version that uses the USD files used by houdini ?

adro commented on 2024-01-24 20:51 (UTC)

As far as I know, Blender is the only program to only use monolithic USD. They should change to shared libs if they really want to treat USD as more than a file format.

I'm in favor of having USD with shared libs since I use it for more than just building Blender, and I don't think there's an option to build both ways unless you want to try building it twice and copy the monolithic library.

So @adro we have an issue with USD. I had to revert the change to that because blender was not happy about the option change. We'll either need to figure out how to fix the blender build to work with options moonray likes or patch moonray to somehow use the same options as blender or figure out some alternative way to package USD that does both or something. In any case usd-23.11-8 has the monolithic build option turned on again.

Many thanks to lots of work from @adro, this is now in a buildable condition. It is also available prebuilt in my user repository, with some caveats:

  • It requires usd-23.11-7 currently in [extra-testing]
  • You have to supply optix yourself, which requires a manual download due to NVIDIA license issues.

This is still pkgrel=0 because it doesn't work. We have usd building cleanly (and a packages is available in my user repository to build this against) so we're past that hickup in dependencies, now we have to work on pxr. If anybody wants to help with that please drop a line here, on my Github, or whatever. Collaboration welcome.

@adro (well really not you since I pinged you on GitHub, but for anybody else)

The usd package still isn't actually buildable because it expects an old version of pyside with a deprecated binary name. Until that gets fixed and it works to build in a chroot I have a hard time testing the PR you sent to update this package.

Hi @alerque,

The USD package is now buildable, let me know if you need something else.
