Bounded Foam particles export

Post by mike_zet » Thu Nov 19, 2020 3:51 pm

Hello guys,

is there a way to "crop" just a part of all simulated foam particles? I would like to export basically only a bounded section of .abc particles (simulation is done) for optimization purposes while rendering. What I mean is something like bounded mesh export.

Thank you.

maybe this could be done using a script... but to work with the already saved particles, I assume you would have to load those particles again in RF, kill those outside of a boundary, export again. It might be faster to just render only a part of the frame in your 3D application.
