Houdini instancing -> Clarisse workflow

Unread postby enquel » Thu Jul 12, 2018 4:29 pm

Welcome,

can someone point me to a direction of converting Houdini scenes with instancing into Clarisse scenes?

I manage to export the scene into Alembic, pipe that in into Clarisse, then create Scatterer and point my instance object as a geometry to scatter.

The problem is, I also need to be able to transform point-cloud specific attributes onto the instanced objects: I want the instanced geometry to have proper normals, scale, and color. Is Clarisse able to read Houdini point attributes?

Thank you in advance

Sorry guys for double posting, I have found a solution here:

Going further with the workflow: could anyone point me to a resource how to write a parser that would automatically configure scatterers, create extracted properties, provided that my point clouds and object to instance on them share names, and differ with suffixes?
