Hi guys. So I ran into the typical "follow a tutorial and hit a brick wall".
I just don't get the Geometry input from Houdini in UE5 like the tutorial does.
Anyone knows what's causing this?



Tutorial Im following

Hi,

Likely, your HDA simply has no inputs
https://www.sidefx.com/docs/unreal/_inputs.html#InputNode [www.sidefx.com]

either add inputs in the type properties if it's a SOP HDA, or expose an object merge Object parameter on your HDA.

The other possible issue, could be licensing, as the inputs/parameters won't show up in Unreal if the plugin can't get a license.
(and as a reminder, Houdini Engine plugins won't work with Houdini Apprentice / .hdanc files)

Likely, unreal's log should display an error message, or selecting an HDA should indicate in the details panel if the session has any issue.
