This is my first topic on the site. The forum helped me out a lot in the past so thanks a lot for that!
I was hoping someone could help me out a little with this little problem I'm encountering.
So I just recently started off in Houdini. I really love the program and I'm in the "make some fun stuff using the shelf tools" phase. Bit by bit I'm trying to understand this beast of a program better.
So this is the thing I'm dealing with right now. I simulated some bouncy pencils in Houdini, and I would like to texture and render it in Cinema 4D.
I exported the geo as an alembic animation from houdini as a single .abc file containing around 400 frames. The animation plays just fine when I import it in cinema, but I can't seem to access the selection sets to start the texturing. When I double click the orange selection triangles, the object will show the correct parts in yellow, but that's it! I found some tutorials online that say I should bake the alembic to PLA to make it accessible geometry, but when I finish the baking, nothing has been changed and I'm still left with this same alembic animation.
The thing I'm tying to do should be possible, right? What am I doing wrong here? I hope someone can clear some things up for me!
Thanks a lot!
All the best,
