Hey Miles!!! the problem was because I was increasing the frame range and updating the channel to the new frame range after importing the 3d data in Houdini. As simple as that, now it works beautifully :-)

Thanks guys for all the suggestion :-))

I've never had any problems with this at all using the File CHOP. I
think you're confusing the Graph Editor and the CHOP Viewer.

Back to the original problem, I'd bet it's the sample rate being
different on the File CHOP. Explicitly set it to the correct one.
