Houdini 18.5.411 Updated to a new build of the USD library. This build is still based on the 20.08 release, but with a few fixes and additions: * Fixes for reading and writing files through Windows junction mount points * Fixes to UsdSkel rendering * New APIs to author blocking opinions on variant set selections * A fix for a possible performance issue when rendering animated meshes

These changes should not require rebuilding any USD plugins, as no public APIs were changed. However building future versions of HoudiniUsdBridge will require updating your USD library to include at least the new variant set APIs (and we would recommend including all of these updates).
