Hi,

If you only want to export materials, you should use the LocalDB feature, exporting the materials from C4D to the LocalDB and importing them using this feature in the Houdini plugin. The LocalDB directory configuration must be the same in both packages.

Thanks,Juanjo.

Your advice is a nice plan.
But it was difficult to close the Houdini scenes after import a localDB/liveDB material,
even I saved it.
I have to end process.

Houdini:17.5.173
Octance:2018.1.0.7

So do you say that Houdini freezes after importing a LiveDB material? Here this feature seems to work fine. Are you working on Windows?

I said the Houdini can't be exited after importing a LiveDB material.
It's freezed when I exit Houdini program.
It can be worked after importing a LiveDB material.
