Arnold for Katana (or KtoA) provides a bridge to the Arnold renderer from within the standard Katana interface.

Features
• Natural integration with Katana nodes, scenegraph, and scripting.
• Multi-threaded scene translation, made possible by Geolib3 in Katana 2.
• Bundled Arnold, shaders, and plugins for a smooth out-of-the-box experience.
• Support for the latest Arnold 4.2.x series.
• Improved interactivity for live rendering (IPR) allows look changes to be rapidly previewed.
• Ultra-fast OpenVDB volume rendering.
• Shader networks.
• Works with third-party shaders and renderer procedurals (for hair, etc).
• Render outputs and AOVs, including Deep EXR.
• Supports the curves location type in Katana for hair rendering.
• Many light types and light filters supported, as well as interactive modification of lights.
• Object parameters and global options better match what is available in Arnold.
• Improved documentation within Katana (args files).

Changes KtoA v2.2.2.0 (Release Date: December 13, 2018)

Enhancements

Update to Arnold 5.2.2: The core version has been updated to 5.2.2, with improved photometric (IES) light sampling, hair shader anisotropy controls, and more; see the release notes. (#352)

Incompatible Changes

XGen multithreaded disabled: XGen is currently unstable when using multithreading, so the toggle is now removed and ignored on ArnoldXGen, and may be re-enabled at a later date when XGen handles internal multithreading better. Note that if you have multiple XGen procedural locations, that can also cause instability if parallel_node_init is turned on in ArnoldGlobalSettings, so if you experience crashes please turn that off as well. Finally, the XGen procedural in MtoA will be updated to guard against these crashes in the near future so that parallel_node_init does not need to be turned off. (#353)

Bug Fixes

#353 xgen multithreading is unstable
