Hello !

I am having an issue regards Houdini 10 export / LW mdd playback.

In LW, it appears there is some reordering of points going on, as the points are all there but the polys are all wrong. Anyone else having this issue and preferably a solution too !

HD10 + LW9.6

I was following this -> http://www.elementvfx.com/WebDemo/houdini_mdddemo/houdini_mdddemo.html

In which the guy imports the obj into layout, and for some reason the point order was being messed up (relative to the mdd), thus things are very screwed.

It makes me wonder if the OBJ saving options in layout also filter on loading.

Anyway to cut a tedious story short... load the orignal LWO into layout, not the exported OBJ. Works fine.
