alembic layering in houdini 17.5 Oct. 17, 2019, 3:53 p.m.

We usually use alembics from other softwares so we dont have access always to the alembic rops layering. I was thinking more of the workflow in these examples below. Sorry if im misunderstanding but thanks for the help and I will try to use the workflow provided.

alembic layering in houdini 17.5 Oct. 17, 2019, 12:29 p.m.

Thanks for file!

I was kinda hoping i could merge 2 alembics with same path hierarchy without having to do anything from the rop. Just link the layerfile in the alembic node and choose what to override/merge or prune.

alembic layering in houdini 17.5 Oct. 17, 2019, 5:16 a.m.

in houdini 17.5 there seems to be alembic version 1.79 which should include alembic layering. I cant find any information about this in the docs. there is a layer parm which just seems to add another alembic to the alembic node. I would like to be able to take specific attributes as point reference or uv from another alembic. Any knowledge about this?
