I'm very new to houdini, and I'm having trouble understanding how to create special attributes and groups in my digital asset. I've been searching the docs and doing google searches, but I can't seem to find information on this topic.

This is the link to the docs:
http://www.sidefx.com/docs/unreal/_attributes.html [www.sidefx.com]

Can someone help me or point me towards some good examples?

Thank you in advance :-)

Hi,

You use the attributecreate node and put in the correct name and data setup based on the document you linked.

First image below shows a couple of these nodes in a tree.

The second image shows inside one of the nodes on how it was setup.

Just in case you need to know, the unreal_material value in the String field is obtained by using copy reference if you right click on your material in Unreal Editor.

Hope this helps.
