oooh damn, reading the docs again, seems like that is only for UE4 Material Instances, not for materials that come from Houdini, I'm I wrong?
could that be done? modify the Blend Mode for a material that comes from Houdini?


Modifying Blend Mode Jan. 19, 2018, 9:13 p.m.

so I'm trying to modify the blend mode as described here []

like this
To change the “Blend Mode” parameter from the default “Opaque” value, to “Additive”, add a unreal_material_parameter_blendmode detail attribute to your asset, and set its value to either “additive” (String attribute) or 3. (Float or Integer attribute).

but is not working, is this a bug? am I doing it wrong?

I'm creating a detail attribute as the note says and making it a string, there's no change in the created material un UE4

Using UE4 4.18.3 and Houdini FX 16.5.359

thank you
