How to use Octane ORBX SOP ?

Hi guys ,

I am trying to load a simple orbx file
trex_08.orbx
(700.51 KiB) Downloaded 70 times
inside houdini with the ORBX SOP, but it doesn't display anything at render time.
The orbx works perfectly in standalone, but i can't make it work in houdini, i might be doing something wrong but i don't know what ?
I use houdini Indie 17.5 with Octane 2018.1.3 on windows.

Cheers

Hi,

Have you tried to import the .orbx file once it has a geometry output or a render target node as the final root node?

Thanks,
-Juanjo

Thanks for your answer Juanjo,

I have try both of your solution but none of them work.
I have the following error message :

Are you sure that it is not related to an Indie License restriction that doesn't allow orbx access ?

I have attach the orbx scene. It does work smoothly in standalone but not with the Orbx SOP.
trex_13.orbx

Hmm, somehow an alembic node can't be connected directly to the internal node tree built by the plugin to support the .orbx files. I'll investigate it, but meanwhile, a workaround is to add a geometry group node to the .orbx file.

Thanks,
-Juanjo

Thanks a lot for your great support Juanjo, it works perfectly with the group node.
This is really a great feature. Thanks for implementing this.

For the next plugin build, I've updated the .orbx referencing code to support these kinds of files without adding additional nodes.

Thanks,

Hi juanjo ,

In OctaneRender 2020.1 for Houdini Beta build 2020.1.0.1 XB2 the orbx proxy still need a Group and a Geometry Output to work properly.
So it looks that the correction you've done recently is not working ?

Hmm, the fix should be there. Do you have this problem again with your orbx file attached to this topic, or does it happen with another file?

Thanks,
