i am trying to export a alembic from houdini to blender. This mesh has a Cd atribute with an animation.

I was able to export a still frame using the ROP alembic node in houdini. I can use the vertex color with no problem. What i was not able is to export the frame range and viz de vertex color animation inside blender.

enter image description here

This is my render set up with the still frame. I want the same but with the animation.

How can i make this to work???

  • $\begingroup$ I don't quite understand your problem. I can import alembic animations with Cd>Vertex Colors without a problem. Care to share a short abc? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ the problem is that the Cd attrribute inside houdini has an animation. But when i import the vertex color animation to blender i cant see it $\endgroup$ Commented May 3, 2020 at 20:43
  • $\begingroup$ I understood that, it is clear from the question. How did you export the abc, can you share it? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I dont know if this is the correct solution. But i solve it using this modifier and animating the frame value [![enter image description here][1]][1] [1]: i.sstatic.net/2W1ox.jpg $\endgroup$ Commented May 3, 2020 at 21:27
