Particles - Redshift proxy export is empty

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I try to export particles to maya with a redshift proxy but when I try to export it, the proxy appears empty. I tried using both the Output Proxy Sop and the Redshift Rop and both give the same result.

Is there anyone who know why this would happen ?

 

Cheers,

As far as I know rsProxies are not really cross-platform compatibles
Better to use alembic

You cannot read particles as alembic in Maya. In the past I used this method to put particles into Maya, but it seems that it doesn't work and I don't know why. The proxies are empty but they shouldn't..

Actually, you're right.
Problem with rsProxies beteen DCCs is with materials.
Checked my files, I did a little export test last year, to get particles in C4D in various way, and rsProxy works. Don't remember why, but I preferred to use alembic.

I attach the file, et au cas ou, I put also the generated rsProxies, tested in C4D, and not empty.

I believe a material is embedded in the .rs proxy file, but the problem is pathing to any textures. You can override in the DCC, but pure procedural materials should transfer fine. Try a simple silver or plastic on your .rs proxy.
