fbx import of animated focalLength not happening Aug. 28, 2008, 9:31 a.m.

hi chaps,
i'm looking at porting cameras from maya to houdini using fbx and have a camera with an animated (keyed) focalLength (see attached .fbx as exported from maya).

Importing this back into maya I can see that the keys for the focalLength are present an correct. However when I import this .fbx into houdini only the tranformation animation is applied - the focal length is just a static value with no keys.

So I'm keen to know whether animation of non-transform parameters is just not supported - or whether changing my .fbx export options might help…

cheers
