export a usd file from maya with maya_usd plugin can't render correctly in ktoa

I create a sphere in maya, and assign a aiStandarSurface,and connect a texture with aiImage.I export this sphere with maya 2022 usd plugin to katana,the texture can't render right,it became some solid color,and I got no error or warning in katana. I try this usd in Houdini Solaris, got the same result, then I export this sphere with arnold usd, the texture works fine in Solaris, but material is just gone in katana .My mtoa version is 4.2.1, ktoa is 3.2.2, htoa is 5.5.0.0

maya usd isn't part of Arnold, so you may not get an answer here

Yes, I tracked this down later, after I replied. Maya USD and Arnold USD use different names for the uv coords. That's something that needs to be fixed.

got answer at autodesk community, just set an environment variable "MAYAUSD_EXPORT_MAP1_AS_PRIMARY_UV_SET ",uv will rename to "st" when export

I had this issue and it was UV related. My solution was to update mtoa and the maya usd plugin (v 0.10 https://github.com/Autodesk/maya-usd/releases/tag/v0.10.0 )

Another solution is to just rename the "map1" to "st" I think, but I´d try to update the plugins first.
