Enable Auto-generate TX Textures.

There's no good reason to disable it.

If you really must, then you have to enable Auto tile.

So you have Auto-generate TX Textures enabled.

Enable Auto-tile

it works fine with HtoA 2.2.2 if I save the file in previous version of houdini (16.0.671) and open the file in houdini 16.5.323 but it doesn't work if I create a scene in current version. it is strange.
