import alembic sequence from Realflow

I'm trying to import an alembic sequence from realflow into maya but it ain't working. I'm guessing since alembic doesn't normally handle sequences this is the issue. Any solutions?

I am also wondering about this. How can I import a realflow mesh sequence in alembic format? I tried maya-> file -> import, and also had a look at the realflow plugins...

thx

You don't need the files like Particles? In RFRK the abc format work well for me.

I want to import the realflow _mesh_ in Maya, for rendering. I actually haven't tried to import the particles yet. I will need to do that soon...

I'm able to import the abc mesh and the gpu cache inside maya 2014 without problems.
Do you have another maya version?

I have realflow 2013.

I have the same - maya 2014, and realflow 2013. You are able to import an alembic mesh sequence into Maya? How do you do it? I was wondering if I need to have a "." before the frame number in the .abc file name.

thanks

Ops. I'm totally misunderstanding. You need to load a sequence.

Ok i run into a solution for all the sequence.
I was create an animation and export the alembic files. After that on realflow i run the tool Stitch alembic files, but was not good. So i selected all the alembic files except for the first frame like 00000 becuase it is without mesh, click on stitch button and it generate 1 file with all animation mesh sequence, and now it work fine. All sequence work inside maya.

Cool. I read up on the stitch tool before, and it seemed like it was for combining particles, mesh, displacement maps, etc. or something, for each frame. I will have a go, although I'm afraid I will end up with a 1 terabyte file. Haha!

Ah ah . I'm curious on how bigger the file after the Stitch!
