Meshing Particles from Realflow

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am importing an Alembic particle sequence from realflow. Shows up great in Houdini, no problems there. I want to 'mesh' it, I was thinking I would convert it to VDB and then to polys to have maximum control however the 'VDB from Particles' node is not taking the alembic particles (ie. nothing happens). Do I need to convert them to something else before? Am I approaching this completely wrong?

Much obliged,

Never mind I figured it out in the alembic loader you have to load the points as 'Houdini Point Cloud' then it recognizes the points as endemic to Houdini and you can do whatever you want with them. Also, better way to mesh is not a VDB but a particle fluid surface.
