Houdini 9's New Backend: A Python Interface to Rendering

When Houdini starts a render, it sends a scene description to the 
renderer. In Houdini 9, this is done through a new Python back-end. Mark 
Elendt will present an overview of the new Python API and discuss some 
of the features of the new interface. Most of the presentation will be 
looking at code and API diagrams; there will be very few pretty 
pictures. This class is for those with an understanding of a programming 
language (preferably some Python experience), an understanding of a 
renderer interface (ie. RIB, .mi, OpenGL) and a basic understanding of 
how Houdini objects work.
