19.5.485
  • Added support for specifying the material slot when using the unreal_material attributewith point instancers (unreal_instance). You can specify the material slot to override byadding its slot number to the attribute name: unreal_materialX.
  • When importing meshes to Houdini, we prefix the unreal_material attribute string with thematerial slot index if the mesh uses more than one materials.This prevents the plugin from merging material slots that uses the same material.
  • Imported material parameters now also add their material slot number to the attribute name(unreal_material_X_PARAM_NAM). This prevents overwriting values when separate materials usea material parameter with the same name.
