Compile shader command missing with Pixar Renderman 21.6


#1

I’m doing a tutorial using RSL but the shader compiler its missing.
I’m using the 21.6 NC version
Is there a reason why?
I notice that there is a new command oslc
Is this the new way using OSL’s is there a tutotial writing OSL and importing them as digital assets in Houdini.
thanks in advance,
-Alex

Hey Alex.

RSL has been deprecated in 21.0. The last version supporting it is RenderMan 20.x.
You can use OSL to write patterns, but not BxDFs (RenderMan doesn’t support OSL closures).
