Referencing a not available object

Hi,

I have several alembic files with some points and use a "Copy to points" node to use a tube with these points. It looks good in the Houdini viewport, but the Octane IPR tells me that: The instance node "XXX" is referencing a not available object ""

Any workaround here?

Best wishes,
Thomas

Oh, "copy stamp" does the trick. Why is this? Doesn't the plugin support the "copy to points" node?

Hmm, I'm not sure what could be the problem. Can you please attach an example scene to try to reproduce this issue? Here it seems to work fine.

Thanks,

Hi,
Here is the scene. I deleted all other parts. Hope it stills throws the error message :)

Hi,

The problem is that in this object some of the points have defined an "instance" point attribute with an empty string. Due to this attribute, the plugin thinks that this object is an instancer, but of course, it can't find the object to be instanced. To avoid this problem you need to delete this not used "instance" point attribute.

Hope it helps,
-Juanjo
