Short description of error
Tested the import export from Houdini to Blender via Alembic abc format. There is a problem with curve objects.
Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
I tried to export Fur from Houdini to Blender via Alembic. When i exported it everything works fine. Blender converted this polylines or even Nurbs Curves to Blender Nurbs Curves. So far so good. But. When you play the animation sequence the curve Objects in Blender (fur Curves) lagging a Frame . Means. You need to push one frame forward to get the Curves in the correct possition then you need to step one frame back to get the geometry back to where it has to be. The curves dosent move. .. In Short Words there is a Frame Redraw Lag or Reading lag for Curves.
My Solution was to convert all Lines in Houdini to Polyllines then i extruded them to get a real Polygone. I exported the polygone Hairs again -> everything works fine with real geometry. Hope this gets fixed soon.
For still import (no Sequence the import of Alembic even with Nurbs curves works perfectly)
BIG THANKS TO ALL THE INVOLVED DEVELOPERS FOR the ABC INTEGRATION!!!!!
