Hey everyone,
Unreal has the new hair system since 4.24 which requires a premade groom from Houdini (or other DCC) as alembic file.
I did not have any success so far with exporting a basic groomed ABC and import it into Unreal. I just used the shelf “add fur” tool.

Anyone already dived into that a little and could help me save some lifetime?

Thank you very much for reading.

Best,

I am interested in this as well. Is this possible now, if so, how to setup and export?
