    Hi guys,

    Starting a new project and I'm quite new to VFX graph but want to create a point cache from a PNG or JPG image.

    Has anyone got some guides I could have a peak at?

    Cheers

    Hello,
    The Visual Effect Graph package integrates a Point Cache Bake Tool, you can simply use a texture as input to create a point cache.

    Or use the texture directly. No need to go via a point cache in most cases.
