Import particles from file


Hi, I’ve been looking for a way to import particles from a file into Maya. I can export the particle data in any way . I just need to get specs on what the file should contain to easily make it work in Maya. The goal is to get physically 100% accurate data from CFD engineering software and make it a sexy looking render.

Any tips are greatly appreciated


Alembic might be most logical way to go, since then you can import it in other packages as well.
This is alternative solution:
Also some interesting thread on a subject with links
There are some other particle editors and converters.
Depends on you maya version.
Test alembic format to export and import.

Hope it helps for now…
