I dont know what seems to be the problem.

All is working as expected.

My tutorial is a little dated and the Fur module has received a lot of updates, though my method is still viable. There are some parameters that have changed so maybe an amendment is in order for H14, but H15 is fast on the horizon.

I'm crossing my fingers that the new fur tools which are difficult to work with have been improved.

I replaced your external curves with a locked nulls so it is all in one file. And your sphere is just a Houdini one.

edit/ oh i know what was wrong. Your file sop for the curves had a number suffix, and Houdini reads it as curves_$f.obj. You had Show sequences as one entry checked when importing the geometry and so the File parameter still has the path with the $F in it. Can't tell you how many times this has happened to me.
