import particles from realflow "error"?

Hi!
When I import particles waterline or splash,
adding particles into error. They are criss-crossed.
What am I doing wrong in the settings in the realflow.

Thanks for the help.!

what kind of error do you get? what do you mean by "criss-crossed"?
the paticles are criss-crossed??
all the rf-sequences are missing in your file. theres only the boat in it.
so hard to tell without all that....
maybe upload again with only the rf-particle data, without the mesh (because of data size...).
then we can help maybe.

The particles are everywhere in the air.

your scaling is wrong

Thanks for the reply. It can not possibly be there, tried with adjustments of scaling. It should probably be a bug in rf2013,
why it works with rf2012 then.?

yes, on your computer. but not in the scene.
the bin files in your scene refer to:
D:\Realflow\scenes\Admiral\Admiral2\particles\HY_S plash01_00000.bin

maybe post a screenshot? a movie?
an empty scene is senseles somehow....

you could also just upload the particle-sequence, (not the bin-sequence, which is the mesh.
particles are stored in your project folder inside the "particles" folder), maybe then we can help.
hard to say with an empty scene.

got the message "Only. Bin or. PXY extension is accepted as particle file."
When I import. pd files from Particle sequence (. pd).

with rf2012, has always been possible to imoprtere bin particles in C4D with "RealFlow Particle Importer"plugins` and working properly.

Hey! here is Incorrect placement of particles. see example picture.
Here is the waterline and splash particles.

If you own Effex 2.0 you could try loading the particles with the Particle Cacher. It supports RF particle import.

loading the particles with the Particle Cacher with Effex 2.0?
What do you mean, how to do it.?

Yes, exactly. You load them with the Particle Cacher.

The filenames must probably be in effex enumeration format though: FilenameFRAME.bin while FRAME is replaced with 5 digits. i.e. for frame 123 it would be 00123.

Example: test00123.bin

Just set the file format to .bin (Realflow), set the path to the folder where the bins are and the filename (for the example it would be "test"). The info window should give you information about the sequence then.

I remember that one of my betatesters did export effex simulations without any problems into RF5. This is just the other way round. Let me know about your findings.

Edit: Btw. what is the usual enumeration format of Realflow?

yep, my tester just confirmed that he successfully loaded particles from RF2013 standard emitter with the Particle Cacher, so it should work fine.

hey!
when I type for example, HY_Emitter01_00001.bin. in File name
nothing happens. The info window not give information about the sequence.
Having selected Cache Folder "Path" D:/Realflow/scenes/test/particles.
It stands on the Load Mode.
