Camera ray to tangent space Sept. 13, 2022, 8:32 a.m.

Hi, I am trying to transform the camera ray to tangent space.
I am using a kma_rayimport node (Vector3, ray:direction)and a mtlxtransformvector to transform the vector. I could not find any documentation on which names to use in the fromspace, tospace parameters (I have tried space:world, space:tangent and other combinations but just guessing here)

Can anyone shed some light here

Best Regards,
Johan

Hi dpernuit,

Thanks for the info, refine Houdini proxy meshes works perfect.
Out of curiosity, do you know why it is needed to set the tangentu and tangentv vertex attr to {0,0,0} to get the interior mapping to work?

Thanks Melt!

Following your advice made it work after I bake the HDA. Baking it makes both the baked result and the HDA work with the interior mapping.

Before it is baked (or if a parameter of the HDA is changed) it only shows the "x-axis". I have attached a gif showing the HDAin unreal. Does anyone know why it behaves like this?

Thanks,
