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?
