So I made good progress on my big project today - a nice animated clothing for my main char, made in Marvelous Designer.
The exported alembic file is around 2.5 Gbyte for 240 frames of animated clothing.
When opening or merging the file in C4D, both S22 and R23 crash instantly.
What I tried:
FBX (does not show animation at all)
OBJ sequence (canceled that one, as each frame was almost 200 Mbyte)
Lower the simulation settings in MD signifcantly, but that resultet only in a 50 Mbyte lowering of the alembic
I looked around for alternative ways to get the animation data into c4d (pc2, maya cache), but there seem to be no tools for the newer C4D-Versions around
Since I plan to simulate a lot of sequences in MD, I’d much prefer to have the versatility of the alembic-file-referencing in C4D.
Do you guys have any idea how to lower the file size or get C4D to read the file?
Thanks in advance!
