Does anyone know of a script or plug in that will set surface textures in Layout? I have Alembic characters importing into Layout and I have to manually point all of the texture files in Surface Editor. I have a text file of all the surfaces and the name of the .png files.

I can do coding if someone has a script to get me started in the right direction.

No, sorry I don know of anything but I am surprised you got textures out. What software are you exporting alembic from?

I tried this with maya and had no luck with surface data and textures.

I'm getting it out of the new iClone 7. It exports Alembic with diffuse, spec, bump and transparency textures for each item of clothing and the characters. It also creates a .ini file with all the file names for each texture. It takes a while to manually set them all.

Need a way to auto load the info from the .ini file. Anyone have the basics to access the Surface Editor via a script?
