Instant Meshes Bridge

Instant Meshes is an open source Quad Remesher that works incredibly well.
In this video we cover a way to call Instant Meshes from inside Houdini and use it on a normal workflow. 
You will need to download the Instant Meshes executable and place it in your houdini16.0 directory, or select a custom path as shown in the video.

    This looks like a great way to auto retopologizing, is there a way to make it work on MACOSX ?
    Many Thanks

    Hi, unfortunately, this tool makes holes in geometry, maybe need add more options besides desired vertex count?

    The executable version indeed has far more features than the node version. One thing I could imagine doing would be to mark a few points on the high-res geo, turn those into curves (via shortest path), possibly smooth it out a bit and use the result to guide the orientation field. I suppose this could be automated with an array (multiparm) of group inputs.

    I am not sure the software has this feature, but it should have a way to paint/mark areas where you want more or less detail.

    Ya it would be nice to be able to localize detail somehow.
