APISchemaAdapter not loading in Houdini

Hey everyone!

I’ve built a SceneIndexPlugin with an APISchemaAdapter to a custom API Schema, which works fine in native USD 23.11, confirmed with usdview. However, I can’t get the adapter to work inside Houdini (tested with Karma and HoudiniGL for Houdini 20). Running with TF_DEBUG=PLUG_* show the plugin is loaded, and I’ve checked that my SceneIndex is in fact created. It’s just the adapter that doesn’t seem to get called. I’ve confirmed that the adapter is registered with UsdImagingAdapterRegistry::GetInstance().GetAPISchemaAdapterKeys().

Any ideas why this wouldn’t work? – I understand this might be Houdini specific, but perhaps someone here has done this successfully and can share some insight. Any input is much appreciated! :slight_smile:

I’m running Houdini with both

All the best,

Hi Viktor, I saw you also created a post on the Houdini forum (Usd APISchemaAdapter not loading | Forums | SideFX) which is where I’ll try to carry on the discussion.
