Layers not showing up when importing digital asset for terrain Dec. 15, 2017, 4:53 p.m.

Hello, I was having quite a bit of difficulty setting up a landscape material from my Houdini Digital asset that I imported into UE4. I am using Houdini Indie 16.5.311, UE 4.18.1 and my operating system is windows 10. I cannot figure out why the layers are not showing up when I apply the material. My understanding is that the digital asset automatically creates them as the layers and you can just give them the proper name in the material. To test this I made a very simple demonstration of how I think this works based on my research. I added the time shift node so that my frame being used in the asset should hold values other than 0. I included a heightfield quick shade to show that the layers do exist in houdini. Any ideas on what might be wrong?

Digital Assets will not import into UE4 Dec. 6, 2017, 7 a.m.


Sorry it took so long for me to get back on this, been very busy and got the flu. The plugin was not loading properly as you assumed. I went ahead and downloaded the daily build Houdini Indie 16.5.311 so I could use my project on UE 4.18. I also downloaded and installed Houdini Engine Build 16.5.311 and this did the trick. Now my digital assets are working and are awesome as I was hoping. Very impressive.

Digital Assets will not import into UE4 Nov. 22, 2017, 9:56 a.m.


I am running the following versions of the software involved:

1. Unreal Engine 16.3
2. Houdini Indie 16.5.268
3. Windows 10

I am attempting to import digital assets that I have authored in Houdini Indie. Upon import I receive the following error. “Houdini Installation was not detected.Failed to locate or load libHAPIL.dll. No cooking / instantiation will take place.”
I have attempted a very simple single piece of geometry to ensure my noob status with Houdini was not affecting things. The plugin is showing up as active in the UE4 editor, and as far as I know my licences should allow this.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
