How to assing shaders to crowd agents in solaris.

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have some truble to assing shaders to my crowd agents in Solaris. Since I want to export my crowds with material to usd for later rendering in Maya with Arnold, I want to assing materials to crowd agents. While a shader assignment works fine if I import the crowds with the Create SkelRoots option, this seems to work only for a few agents because if I export the scene, the needed ram exceeds quite fast my machines capabilities. So because I want to use it with some more agenst, I hope there is a way to assign materials to crowds imported with the Create Instanced SkelRoots option. As you can see in the attached image, assingment of materials do not work in a way I understand. Or - what would be cool - if I could find a way to only export the geometry and skeleton only for one frame and later layer the animation from a extra layer, but if I understand the docs correctly this is not an option with usdSkel. I'd appreciate any ideas.

Uppsss... I think I found the problem. The main problem site in front ot the keyboard. The sop crowd import lop node already has everything I need. The important point here is that I have to unpack the agents in the sop import. Now evertyhing seems to work fine.
