Absolutely the way to go, renders are way quicker and writing out ifds
is a snap. Couldn't live without it.

Subject: [Sidefx-houdini-list] Mantra Point Instancing with Read Geo
Fromfile


Hello,

I'm working on a script that automates some of my point instancing
workflow.

I just noticed that the geo object that I'm instancing can be written to

a bgeo sequence and on the render tab, I can set this to read geometry 
from file. I did try this and I see the .bgeo is referenced in the .ifd 
file.

My question is, is this technique of "instancing read archives" safe to 
deploy site-wide or am I just gettting lucky that it works in my test?

Cheers,
