I just started using Clarisse and I wanted to import a tree I created in Houdini. When I use the shelf button to import I end up with nothing (point count = 0).

Am I missing some very basic info?

Have you tried to import the same abc file into Houdini? Does that show up directly ?
Can you give us an example of how you export a mesh as abc from Houdini ?
We may then give some guidance

Edit :
I noticed you use the older polyfile type which works only for objs..
Strongly recommend to use abc format instead !

Ah! My post took a long time to show up!

I wasn't using the right method. I solved it by right clicking in the browser and adding the alembic through that. Now it works!
