Anyone dealt with this? Any pointers appreciated! I sure wish
Houdini's camera was compatible with the rest of the world :(

Here is the problem we are seeing.  When a camera is sent via FBX from
maya to Houdini the filmback
values are changed to an aperture value.
Then when the camera is exported via FBX from Houdini to Nuke or back
to Maya the values are

Below are the numbers we are using/seeing:

Actual filmback:
0.882" (22.4mm) x 0.496" (12.598mm)

Image resolution:

Maya to Nuke is good

Maya to Houdini:
Houdini converts the filmback values to 16.7979 (aperture)

Houdini to Nuke = different values: 0.661" x 0.372
Houdini back to Maya = 0.661 x 0.372

No, I am not on Facebook.
