Realflow crashes when I try to import an SD file?

Post by LeadingNowhere » Fri Sep 13, 2013 10:30 pm

I exported an SD file from Cinema 4D. Then I made a new Realflow project file. When I try to import the mesh, the program just closes! I hope somebody can help.

The first thing that comes to mind is you have to make sure your geometry you're exporting to the SD file is triangulated. Real Flow can only handle Triangles. Any 4 or more point polygons will not work. If you have too many of them, it can crash the program.

Good luck,

That's probably it. That's so strange...

I find this odd because every time I import quad geo, RF auto triangulates it.
