I am trying to read a Cd attribute on alembic splines created in Houdini but can't seem to get it to work in C4DtoA. I have no problem reading the Cd attribute from Houdini particles...
In theory all attributes, including Cd should be picked up by the Alembic procedural. We'll take a look if there's a bug somewhere. Meanwhile, do you have any errors or warnings in the console log?
Sorry, newbie question — where can I check the console log? Also, would you recommend a user data shader to access the cd attribute? That’s what I have in my setup currently.
Does that mean there’s an issue on the Arnold or Houdini side?
I'm getting an error when I try to attach the Houdini file to this thread...
Thanks for looking into it for me. I've attached an updated Houdini file as well as my original texture. There was quite a bit of variation between colors (see a screenshot of the Houdini file)... C4D / Arnold just doesn't seem to pick any of it up.
