Anyone know what "Use Asset Object Transform" does? Feb. 2, 2018, 2:16 p.m.

I don't see it documented in the help file. I was hoping it would pass the maya transform of a Houdini object into a second Houdini object if it's used as an input. However as soon as I turn it on it sets all transforms to 0 and locks all the transforms on my Houdini object so I can't move it anyway.

Hiding and Disabling Parameters in Maya Jan. 11, 2018, 5:21 p.m.

I know this has been dormant for a while, but I was wondering if there was any update on this? Would it be possible to “lock” an attribute in Maya if it was disabled in Houdini? This would at least let the user know that changing this parameter is not valid given the other currently set parameters.

In Houdini you can keep your Digital Asset UI clean by hiding and/or disabling parameters based off of the state of other parameters. Is this possible in Houdini Engine for Maya? Currently it seems to ignore the hide and disable states of the parameters as set up in the Digital Asset. Hiding not working I can understand as that is not something Maya normally supports, but it seems like disabling should work as I see that in the attributes of other types of Maya objects. Is this possible with Houdini Engine?
