Problem rendering particles with meshes in Houdini

Postby Borgu » Tue Jul 23, 2013 9:58 pm

I have a simple RealFlow scene imported into Houdini. It contains a Terrain object, a Fluid Mesh, and RFK splash/foam particles. I enclosed some screen shots and refer to them below.

When I try to render all three objects together the particles won't render (1.jpg)

When I turn off visibility on the terrain mesh and the fluid mesh the particles render (2.jpg)

When I turn visibility off on the terrain mesh and try to render the fluid and the particles, the particles render in just a small portion of the screen (3.jpg)

Any idea what is going on?

(Update: since I originally posted this on the Houdini forums I tried a completely different scene. I simulated the shark hybrido scene that comes with realflow. Consists of a shark, a ground plane, a fluid (pre-meshed and imported into houdini via the plugin), and splash/foam particles. I get the same results, the particles will only show up if I turn visibility off on the shark, the meshed fluid and ground plane.)
