I'm right now on the almost last step ... which is the ambient occlusion
the "problem" is.. (and i found that aint a problem but something just
strange) .. all render nodes usually popups the Mantra render status
like all we do know.. ok..
while rendering the occlusion pass... the Mantra rendering (and console
here cause i use verbose usually) popups.. but then after it finishes
the cook it goes away and i can go back to houdini...
at first i thought "wtf.. it cant be so fast.." . in fact the image
wasnt loading into COPs.. after few others tries (after tricking the
parameters i thought was wrong).. same result.. but the machine went
almost unusable.. task manager.. et voilat'.. mantra was there still
sucking CPU .... then I did the render from the viewport instead (the
render button) .. and i noticed that .. its actually rendering.. but why
the Mantra render windows goes away while Mantra is still rendering
hope this is clear.. dunno if its a bug... or a strange behavior.. but
apparently the only way to know when rendering is finished is to check
