How to import open vector of ai to Houdini?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I would like to ask about how to import an open vector illustrator file in houdini to make an open curve?

My ai file is saved as ai 8. Please see the files I attach below.

Thank you so much!

Just save it out as a .abc from Cinema4d and bring it into Houdini. The Illustrator workflow is limited in Houdini.

I am such an idiot, have been trying all day and didn't think of .abc

Thank you so much!

Zombie thread alert. I figured I'd share this solution for folks that come across this thread in the future years later like I did. The Ends SOP node can be used to delete the loop so the curves are open instead of closed. Set the Close U parameter to Open and it should work.
