Yeah, I have checked the caches on both sides.
All of the vertex attributes show up correctly in Houdini.
On the Maya side, if I have cached the changing point count meshes out of Houdini after promoting the desired attributes to vertex attributes, I can connect the prop arrays but get the display error illustated in my earlier post. I also get a warning:arrayToPointColor1: inRgbaPP array length does not match the point count.
If I make the points unique in Houdin (1pt per vert instead of 1pt for 4 vert) then my SOUP connections connect without the warning, but with the same display error. Any tips on Houdini exporting?
As I mentioned before, the desired attributes are converted to color sets without error when imported with the -rcs flag...so I know they are there and intact as AbcImport is very finicky about those vert attributes. They are just the wrong kind of color set.
The cache I posted imports into Houdini with color data and into Maya as well. It just isn't playing nicely with SOUP.
Oh I am soo close. Really sorry to keep banging on about this. There is something simple that I am missing here.
