Maybe its just me, but I cant import FBX on my Laptop running Windows 10, at all - because of the Height of the dialog.

There was some free rigged human 3d scans that I want to inspect, but I couldnt get the rig into Houdini with the File SOP.

So, the Buttons at the bottom of the FBX dialog are cutoff at my resolution (2K : 1920x1080 with High DPI UI). There's no way to resize the dialog, when I drag the dialog higher to expose the buttons, Windows 10 default behavior is to readjust the dialog position so that its top is at the top of the screen - hiding the buttons again.

Tried making my Screen resolution smaller, hoping that it would somehow expose the buttons so I could click them…but, no go there as well.

Tried hitting the Tab key to see if I could simply set focus on the buttons and hit enter, but, I couldnt visually see the control focus indication changing when hitting Tab, so that didnt work.

Thought about trying to trigger the click event on the Dialog in Python…but…figured that energy could probably be better spent complaining/whining about it….LOL…so here I am.

You can drop down an Agent SOP inside a GEO object. Set it to FBX mode and browse to your FBX. This will not get you a “true” subnet import but you can effectively work with the geometry and animation that is embedded in the FBX file. I typically turn polygonsoup off and follow up the FBX with an Unpack, if I know I am mixing two Agent FBX motions together.

you can also open an fbx as if it were a hip file, again without any import options. I would just disable HighDPI mode. 1920x1080 isn't really enough to use high dpi mode. 1000 lines is pretty much the minimum with it on normal ui scale, something closer to 2000 lines is the minimum for high dpi mode.
