Mantra combine multiple lights into same aov May 21, 2022, 2:58 p.m.

I am have multiple lights that I would like to combine into one single AOV when I 'Export variable for each light'. Right now they all come in separate AOVs, I would like to selectively combine them into one.

Unfortunately, I cannot, but I can provide a sample snapshot of the USD scene graph. I have Make Instanceable turned on.

I have a USD scene (exported in Clarisse), and I am having trouble rebuilding the layout in Houdini.
The Clarisse layout references one alembic file that has all of the models and has multiple duplicates of parts of that alembic copied many times to make the overall layout. I can import the USD scene into Houdini just fine, but I want to convert each instance into a point that has the following:
- Transforms (TRS, I assume I could just use the "packedfulltransform" to find that)
- The alembic file and hierarchy path that each point is instancing

With this point cloud, I hope to rebuild the USD file using points that have all the attributes I need on them. I have tried using the Scene Graph to find this information, and have had no success.
