I'm trying to install realflow into houdini in OSX, but the instructions on the site don't seem to be very clear. Could anyone give me some instructions please? Thanks.

There is no plugin for OSX/Houdini on the download-page at nextlimit.
I haven't tried anything myself in order to import into houdini though. The source code of the plugin is available here:
http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=140048&package_id=175294

There's a compiled plugin for OSX on the author's site but since its open source and unsupported, WYSIWYG.

Has anybody tried it out with Windows or Linux too? Cheers!

Hey guys,

thanks for the responses...

Thanks for the tutorial Bubs - looks very comprehensive.

Also, I have emailed Erich Turner, so i'll see what he can come up with.

However, tech support here at the university may have identified another problem. According to them, the latest version of the linux plugin available for download (from http://www.digitalcinemaarts.com/dev/real_flow/index.html) has been compiled for 64 bit, not 32.

is this correct? if so, does anyone have the 32 bit linux version for me to try?

thanks

C

Hey,

there is not official plugin for MacOSX yet. At moment it is for windows and linux but soon will be for MAC too. There is a plugin for MAC, but is unofficial plugin and you said, is opensource.

Thanks
