publish from houdini

Hi, I would like to request a new feature in Houdini OpenPype to publish caches along with abc.

Thank You,

Agreed. In our current pipeline we publish both the bgeo sequence, and then the hda it’s loaded into so that when the lighters get it it can have some level of attribute/ timeshift /organization prep already done.

In the future we’re hoping to just use usd as a disk format. But I’m not sure we wouldn’t need a bgeo publish as a interim step.

There’s this open PR to add support for publishing bgeo’s Pull requests · ynput/OpenPype · GitHub but like you, the first time I encountered this I was expecting “bgeo” to be just another format under the “Point Cache” family and not a new “family”, this thread Point Caches in Ayon was started to discuss that, maybe you can comment on it

This is supported in Houdini Addon since Openpype 3.16.1, it was made possible by Houdini: simple bgeo publishing PR
