Reading a point sequence in the MAT network?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I am having trouble converting a SHOP setup to the MAT network. I am sampling colours from a cached point cloud to change the surface colour and it works as expected in the SHOP network if I promote the pcopen file and pick a sequence. But it doesn't work in the MAT network, if I leave it as a flat network there is no where to promote to and I get the "time dependent warning" and putting the setup in a subnet and promote that still doesn't work. I either get the first frame of the cache sampled or nothing at all. Is it because the MAT network is just a massive VOP? And is there another workaround?

Package the vops into a material, then you can promote the parameter like normal.

Collapsing to a material instead of a sub-net did the job thanks :)
