Plexus OBJ export

Anyone have experience exporting OBJ sequences out of C4D for use in Plexus, the AE plugin?

I am trying to use the OBJ seq as a Plexus Container to limit the visibility of Plexus points to within the container.

What I am getting instead is extra points at the intersection of the container with the plexus, but it is not "containing" the points as expected...
There are many points outsside of the container.

I'm wondering if I need to do something different when exporting the OBJ's.

Where do you see a setting to use an OBJ Seq as a container? IFIAK, Plexus containers can be Cubes or Spheres.

(This might be better posted on a AE or Plexus forum)

Plexus2 has an option to import OBJ sequences and use them as a container. My problem is that it only works for super simple geometry with no concavities. My understanding is that it should be able to handle that, but it does not.

I was hoping someone here may have had experience with that.
I have put in a query to the Rowbyte folks. I'll repost back here if I learn anything.

Rowbyte tech support confirm that this is a limitation of the software. No concave shapes allowed for Containers. They are working on it for future releases.
