MrBrad (this is Doug from the Houdini Heightfield video you commented on last month). Since you haven't got a response here yet, you might want to try cross-posting to the HoudiniEngine for UE4 forum []. Damien (dpernuit [] - SideFX's HoudiniEngine for UE4 maintainer) frequents that forum and is probably best equipped to answer this question.

The functionality that MrBrad is asking for is something you can do with UE4's built in foliage tool… you can mass scatter instanced objects and then tweak them after the fact. After switching to a Houdini foliage placement workflow, you lose this feature.
