Importing an alembic sequence with Crate

Post by Pancho » 08 Oct 2015, 19:54

Is there any magic to it? When I import an alembic file with the ending _0001 and scrub through the timeline noting changes. Also the edges of the fractured object (voronoi from Houdini) show up. I assigned point normals in Houdini.

But as I said, it seems to be only the _0001 files which shows up.

Anybody with any instructions how to do that? I just click on the alembic 1.1 importer, check the normals checkbox and import my object.

Cheers
Tom

In the import options dialog, you also need to enable 'Multi-file'.
