Re: Alembic is finally comming on blender !

For now the dev is developping this for characters and hair, I hope we will have the entire support of alembic.

That can change a lot of things for blender.

Re: Alembic is finally comming on blender !

Yes, that's right wink

Pitiwazou, you tried under windows only ? If yes, saw something strange under linux (1.4.0b38), the bounding box is quite strange (no problem in maya, for one time maya do something great lol)

Here a picture and the *.abc file (archive can be open with winrar) :

If you can test under your Guerilla, Pitiwazou, will be great, will see if it's something under Guerilla Linux or Blender ABC wink

Thanks,

Matt

Re: Alembic is finally comming on blender !

Oki, so :

If I import Blender alembic to maya and maya to alembic to Guerilla, it's working.
If import Blender alembic to maya and render, it's working

And If you tried Blender windows alembic to Guerilla, it's working or cut also ? Like your Gorilla ?

Thank you for the test wink

Re: Alembic is finally comming on blender !

I tested a new build and it's ok on the gorilla.

On another test the result is weird.

Re: Alembic is finally comming on blender !

That's weird, the OpenGL bounding box seems right, but the render bounding box is definitely not ok.
I'll check what's going on, guys.

Re: Alembic is finally comming on blender !

Since it's an early developement on the blender part maybe the issue is with the exporter.

We have two possibilities OGAWA and HDF5, OGAWA is the one supported.

Re: Alembic is finally comming on blender !

Hi Ben,

Thanks for the check. Yes maybe bounding box error here, different from standard *.abc maybe.
In other soft like maya or clarisse rendering well. So something different in the bounding box here, for the *abc from blender

Thanks again Ben,

Matt

Re: Alembic is finally comming on blender !

Little test on this one.

Alembic

In OBJ it's ok.

Maybe the export has some bugs, I will try on maya to see.

Edit : On Arnold it's ok.

Re: Alembic is finally comming on blender !

I just checked that the Blender Abc export has wrong bounding box info.
It appears that Guerilla shows it properly in OpenGL because it already loaded the shape from the file. If you turn the shape OpenGL display to BoxMode wireframe, save then reload the file, you'll see the actual abc bounding box, which is not correct.

Unfortunately, Guerilla relies on the bounding box of the objects to perform load on demand, so if the boxes are wrong, render will be wrong.

I'll try to report this to the blender devs.

Re: Alembic is finally comming on blender !

Hey Pitiwazou,

Can you forward me the blender project + exported abc of the small suzanne+balls test you did? I would like to join that to the bug report, but being on Linux, I can't build a sample.

Would be super awesome!
