  1. Hi! did anyone experience the same issue? I imported an Alembic file with different face IDs to Houdini. But when I export it back via Alembic just for testing the ID grouping is basically right, but they don't have the correct order/ID… , they are randomly distributed. I cannot see any pattern. It's neither alphabetically nor based on face count. My node tree consists of: Alembic Import Node –> ROP Alembic Output. On the left side you see the original mesh with correct Material ID order and on the right side the imported Mesh with the wrong material order. Does anyone has a solution for this? Thanks in advance!
  2. Houdini to 3dsmax - Particles

    Hi Everyone, I am doing sand like particles in Houdini and need to render it in 3ds max using v-ray. Can anybody give me some hints as to how I should go about bringing thousands of particles into 3ds max effectively? At the moment I am thinking of exporting to .abc (using alembic crate exporter) and then applying spheres to my points using frost. Would that be the way you do it? Or maybe I should output .bin from houdini. Could someone link me with a stable version of this rop? Should I use the realflow one? Is there any way to "cheat" and increase density in max? sort of like how you would use partitions with a slight offset when dealing with krakatoa. Just trying to think of the right way to get this many particles to go smooth on my machine. I saw this example online and its similar to what I am doing and rendered in 3ds max. Thanks a lot Fred
  3. Coming from 3DSMAX I'm looking for a way to have a 'hose' connected to and move freely between two animated objects. As a test I have two boxes, between which I have drawn a curve/line. The two boxes I then convert to static rigid bodies, and the curve into a wire. If I use attach wire to surface - the wire then drifts away from the point I attached it to. I've tried changing the strength but it doesn't have any impact other than exploding at higher levels. Could someone point me in the right direction please, as it would be greatly appreciated. I'll have to apologise, I discovered that if I change the constraint type value from soft to hard I appear to get a similar effect, although it doesn't like dynamically stretching?
  4. Hi All, I'm about to buy a human model from turbosquid for a project, as I don't have the time to model/rig myself in this instance. My question is: If the model I want to buy comes in '3dsmax 2012' format, will I be able to export it from max so that it's compatible with Houdini & keep all the bones/materials/UV's in tact? Ideally I'd like the download in .fbx, but it's pretty expensive, so I don't want to run the risk of downloading a 3dsmax scene file by accident & not being able to convert. Anyone have any thoughts? I''m looking forward to the day when Turbosquid is full of Alembics Thanks!
