displace option in ArnoldProcedual

hi,

i cannot find displace option in ArnoldProcedual(Obj).

Houdini standard Geometry(Obj) has ArnoldProperties and displacement option is one of them.

the ArnoldProcedual(Obj) is loading "Alembic sequence", the reasons are good performance and stable.

How to apply displace on ArnoldProcedual(Obj)?

why does not have full options?


thanks

displacement is a parameter of a polymesh

procedurals nodes do not support that parameter

if you need to change the displacement of the polymesh objects loaded by a procedural, you could try using an operator (to set the disp parameter).

I have understood the advice.

i can add "Operator" into Arnold(ROP) to override settings subdivision and shader assignment.

so i can add displacement to ArnoldProceduai that alembic loading.
