Ornatrix for Maya, Working With Alembic

Ornatrix continues its beta cycle, and continues to look like an amazing hair and fur tool for Maya. Ornatrix really is all about workflow and fitting into the 3D pipeline. As a prime example of this, Ephere inc. Founder and CEO, Marsel Khadiyev shows how you can export Ornatrix Maya hair, as an Alembic file.

 how to perform the export and how to use it with V-Ray Proxy object

Alembic exports make it easy to go from 3D program to 3D program, but also makes it possible to export for V-Ray Proxy objects, that can be used for a much more efficient renders. Alembic exported hair files can contain the whole baked-out hair, including animation, capturing all the aspects of your Grooms.

You can then use these files as V-Ray Proxy objects, making rendering much faster, while also being able to share hair and fur assets across CG applications, including Maya, 3dsmax, and more.
