Working with Houdini and USD Composer

In this tutorial, we read in a USD file and extract a linear curve prim that serves as a target for power pole instances. Then, we run the curve through a typical Houdini point copy workflow, where we randomize the position and rotation of the instances. Finally, we write the instances and power line mesh to a new USD file that’s referenced into the original USD file.
