If its just for rendering, rop your work out as bgeo.
Then make a digital asset with a file sop pointing to your bgeo, and bring that asset into maya.
Hope that helps

Afaik you don't need to use engine if you export the RBD animation as alembic and the volumes as .vdb files. I don't know which renderer you use, but VRay and Arnold can both render .vdb files.

In the file path inside the asset, are you using $HIP? $HIP doesn't work well through Houdini Engine.

Besides hardcoding the file path inside the asset, you could also promote the file path parameter to the asset. Then select the actual .bgeo file when inside Maya. This way, you don't have to make an asset for each .bgeo file that you're trying to load.
