Obj import into Houdini

Hello,

I've been struggling with trying to import some obj models into Houdini. I can't seem to add an octane shader to them and the remain pink or don't even show up in the IPR window.
Can anyone share their workflow or explain how they handle obj import (using octane plugin)?

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

To set the materials to objects from .obj files, you must use the Material SOP node. The information is stored in groups, and the only way to set the materials to these groups is using the Material SOP.

Thanks,
