Applying a Redshift material to an Alembic file?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi all,

Excuse my lack of understanding, however I have attempted to google with no avail. I have an alembic file that I've imported however I cannot for the life of me work out how to assign/apply a material to it - using the material node doesn't work. I've read about unpacking or converting the alembic but this doesn't alter what I'm seeing on the render. There must be a simple solution?

If it helps, I'm using Houdini 17.5.173 and Redshift 2.6.41. 

~ If anyone has some ideas please comment!

Thanks

you can create a new geo node, inside that, "obj merge" the object that you wanna give material. back on the obj level, assign material at render tab like usual

@d3wo thanks for the response! I am afraid that hasn't worked - I've made a new geo mode and object merged the alembic file and applied the material as I normally do which is by using a material node within the Geo obj. and linking to a material in the SHOP network? - Perhaps you have a different usual method? 

Or maybe it doesn't work for alembic files? As I don't really understand why an object merge would change the issue - thanks for the help anyway let me know if I've got something twisted.

Are you talking about a simple colored material  ?

Or a material with textures. If it's the case are you sure your alembic files includes uv ?

What software does this file come from ?
