HtoA Ass File Instancing w/ "transform" attribute

Hi,

Does HtoA support the native "transform" attribute in houdini?

When instancing a bgeo onto points which have the "transform" matrix attribute, mantra and the viewport apply the matrix as expected. When using the same points and instancing .ass files, no transformation occurs. Is this normal behavior? I think according to the Arnold docs, this should be possible. I might be able to post a hip later if necessary.

Thanks!

It should do, perhaps this is a bug.

Can you post your HtoA version and a simple example scene please?

Cheers

Julian
