I have made an asset that takes position coordinates from houdini and creates them as variables in an unity script. The only trouble is that they are incorrect(sometimes the X gets flipped, and Y/Z is totally off), but when I save the scene in houdini and check the coordinates, they are back to normal.
Is there some difference in how houdini treats coordinates when i open the scene by hand and when it is being calculated in the background. Should I scale the coordinates in some way or offset them? Has anyone noticed similar issues?
Position coordinates different in Unity and Houdini.4943 3 0
Flipping X doesn't make any sense at all if you are working on things like terrains (converted to meshes, as native Unity terrain generation is still not usable). You would likely assume north is upwards in the Houdini top view. When importing into Unity, it ends up upside down, when using the Unity top view. The correct thing is to flip Z. The same problem occurs with the curve tool. It flips the X, so when used as input to my HDA, it does not match the coordinate system. Maybe for props etc., flipping the X would not cause many issues, but for world building, it really messes things up. Where can I change the Unity Engine v2 plugin to so that things are not rotated upside down in Unity? Also, rather than having to re-apply this patch each time I update the plugin, could you please make it configurable instead?
