Houdini provides a lot of tools for creating and managing normals prior to
any export and rendering process. If you can describe what algorithm
"normals smoothing" employs it might b easier to make suggestions or


Does anyone know if there is a way to enable normals smoothing when
exporting from Houdini into FBX? Its an option in many other packages such
as Maya but it doesn't appear to be exposed in Houdini by default.

I am willing to write a plugin for Houdini to get access to the option but
I just wanted to make sure there wasn't an easy way of enabling through a
node or some other means :)
