how to Edit alembic

Recommended Posts

I am currently unable to select primitives of an Alembic geo (Exported From Maya). I want to emit particles from particular faces of geo.

If you middle click the node, you'll see that you have only one primitive, which makes sense with what you're saying. 

If you put an unpack sop there, you'll see that you'll now have all points, but still no primitives. If you put a convert node set to polygons, then you'll have the geometry you're expecting (you can bypass the unpack if you so want).

I just thought I would add onto this.  It is important that the alembic node is set to load as "Alembic Delayed Load Primitives" and not another unpacked version.  I think that is the default but just in case you are working with someone else's files this fixed the problem for me.
