I try to use the realflow plug to render Houdini particles in Lightwave.
When I play my bin. sequence in Lightwave I am unable to use age of the particles as attribute to shade it.
I wonder if the plug actually can export particle age or life in a bin sequence. If not, it should really great to add it : I think the plug made by the nextlimit team could be a nice gateway between the different 3d softwares.
I am not a Maya or max user so I can't tell about this app but when I import bin sequence from Realflow to Lightwave, I can use the age attribute to shade

Thank for your help

Houdini has it's own attributes on particles. RF Houdini exporter/importer uses attributes only needed by realflow.

When I export particles from Lightwave to Realflow, Age info is inside the .bin sequence.
but lightwave use is own attribute too ...
I wonder why age info are not inside .bin file export from Houdini.
For me it's a bug or a limitation but I am not a expert, that why I post here.

You need to make an attribute called "age" and set the value to $LIFE.
