If you save one blade of grass as a bgeo sequence you can load it by using the instance SOP and having the file path as an attribute called *instancepath*. You can just build this manualy and then create an expression for the framenumber part of it to be a random number with ptnum as a seed, like this: /path/mygeo.`padzero(4, ($F + floor( fit01( rand(@ptnum), 0, 50 ) )))`.bego Then you will get packed disk instances.

Hey guys I need to make a grass field for a pre-rendered VR project. I would like to create a bend animation on a blade of grass, and then drive the animation of the grass field, using noise animated through the points I use to scatter the grass. If I use copy/stamping I can rescale the noise values to drive a timeshift node on the grass blade, but I need to use instancing, rather than copy/stamp. We are rendering in redshift so copy stamping doesn't work for this. I would like to know if there is a way to offset animations on instances in houdini. Hope that made sense.
