Title: RealFlow-Cinema4D > import animation in keyshot
Post by: Finema on December 07, 2016, 12:23:25 am
Hi,
Realflow integration in Cinema 4D R18 is fun to do liquid animation directly in C4D.
I've tried to export a test file in Alembic format but Keyshot 6.1 don't want to open it.
What's the process to import it in Keyshot ? and , is it possible ?
Thanks

Yes - the alembic format is supported but not deformable animations. For now you will need to export an obj sequence and then import and render it using scripting inside of KeyShot.

In KeyShot 7 we will have a native support for deformable animations though. If you have an example that you can share we can give this a try and show you the results.

Thanks Thomas
I join an Alembic file exported from C4D. It's just a test not a complete work  ;)

Yes - direct import. You can play it back in realtime, and render it out.

There is no BETA for 7 just yet. We will keep you informed when there is.
