Hey!

I was wondering if it's possible with HE2 to get the Asset Reference String from an Asset that is inserted in an exposed Object Merge input?

Usually when you want to instance with points, you need to set the @unreal_instance attribute.
Therefore we need to pass that string from Unreal to Houdini via right-click -> copy asset reference.

It would be great to have a geometry input in an HDA, assign a static mesh (or whatever) and read the asset reference string from that (via an attribute or something)

Does that already work? Or wouldn't it be a great addition to additionally get the reference as attribute?

Thanks!
Best regards,
Ron

Never mind!
I found it - there's an attribute unreal_input_asset_name that does the trick!
