Although in 3dEqualizer the object is perfectly match to the camera movement, when I export the data in Houdini the data don`t work precisely anymore and the object doesn`t match( i.e. it slides etc..) Does someone can give me some advice or solutions to try?

this might be a stupid guess.. but when importing animation from Maya 
first time.. i had several headace cause of the "homing" of the CHOP 
viewer which after import.. i had object not maching Maya tracked 
animation... the problem was that when importing .chan files (dunno 
about 3De) the CHOP viewport MUST be homed and not zoomed or anything else.

In fact.. i've got a RFE... import CHAN should MATCH the original frames 
data.. and not the current Viewer zooming area... which i find pretty
