Groom Import Options unavailable


I’m having trouble importing an alembic hair groom into UE. When importing the .abc I get the Alembic Cache Import Options instead of the Groom Import Options. Any ideas why that would be or if there is a dedicated groom import available?

These are hair particles I exported out of blender 2.83 and I have enabled the groom plugins inside of UE. I’m on Windows 10.

I saw this post, that seems to be relevant:

Is using Maya an option for you? The xgen to ue4 workflow is the most documented / supported one.

Might wanna check this documentation,

you might need to activate the hair tools in your project first before being able to import it.
