MoSpline animation export as alembic issue

Hi there, I have animated a flower with a growing effect and on the steam sequence I have used a spline and MoSpline objects, all good up there but when I bake it as alembic the file is coming with red “a” icon which after some forums help I did found out the point count is changing throughout the animation so when I re-texture the alembic object the animation works ok but the materials change throughout the sequence. Does anyone know how I can set a consistent point count? Has anyone had a similar issue before? Any tip would be very appreciated!

Hi felipe.vallejo,

Please note that you posted in the “old” forum. We have moved.

I have no idea, based on the images. Setups depend on so much more than the image can show. I (pretty much always) need an example file: no images, but thanks for the effort.

Anything else leads to guessing. The only thing I get from your text is that you use MoSpline. If that is the problem, check the Spline> Generation Mode.

Again, this is a wild guess and not how it should work. If you have an example, please use DropBox to share it; thank you.

Is there any way to have all parts from the start but scaled down? Again guessing.

All the best
