Arnold not rendering textures in Houdini

Hi,
So as per the title, the textures are showing in the viewer and if I use Manta or Karma (the built-in Houdini render engines), but not when rendering in out of Arnold.

 

I imported lots of .glTF from sketchfab.com and they all have the same issue, but not with Manta or Karma.

 

I also tried all the models from here, and none of them work with Arnold!

I have posted this on SideFX forum too:

Thanks

Will

glTF is not supported by Arnold

Those screenshots look like there's no material assigned to geometry. Can you get an Arnold log for a render?

"glTF is not supported by Arnold"

Wow, thanks, that's one problem 'solved'.

😢

Please see attached.

 

Thanks again.

I don't see any materials or textures.

 

There are 2 utility shader nodes, but those are the default shaders created by HtoA.
Normally I would expect to see some standard_surface shaders, and for textures, some image nodes.
