Hi,

I've got a number of HDAs in a level that produce static meshes. It was my understanding that it's not actually possible to evaluate Houdini Engine in gameplay. My assumption is that Houdini Engine evaluates during the cooking process and that what makes it into the game is just a regular Static Mesh.

However, we've been experiencing some surprising performance problems and discovered that the Houdini Engine HDAs appear in the dumptick logs:

[2020.01.22-21.11.08:121][711]HoudiniAssetComponent /Game/Base/Maps/Zones/XXX/XXX.XXX:PersistentLevel.XXXhoudini_actor_2.HoudiniAssetComponent[TickComponent], Enabled, ActualStartTickGroup: TG_DuringPhysics, Prerequesities: 0

What's going on here? Is this expected behaviour?

thanks,

Brett

Also, it would appear that components attached to the Houdini Engine Actor are not properly registered? Our logs are getting spammed hard with warnings that garbage collection is trying to delete unregistered components: they complaints are all the Houdini Assets. Is this a known issue?
