Alembic In Fu7
Posted 07 July 2014 - 11:34 AM
From my initial tests, exporting from exocortex crate (in softimage):
-camera comes in fine, but seems to be split into several nodes... there's a camera which has pos, rot, etc... and then there's a CameraShape which has the camera attributes ( angle of view, etc..) I don't know if this will cause any problems. It's just weird. I had several crashes in the RC1, while just scrubbing. I need to test some more on RC 2.
-A lot of SubD errors. Fusion doesn't support Subdivision surfaces I guess. I'm not too surprised though.
-A lot of FaceSet errors. I don't really know why this isn't supported. This may be normal as well. would love to know if anyone has any insight on this.
Anyone using Alembic and have some tips and tricks?

From what I hear, Alembic has a ton of things that aren't standardized at all. Surprisingly, actually, it doesn't seem to be all that mature yet. Stephen Horwat will be able to fill you in on the details I'm sure...

Like in Maya a goup/transform and a camera shape might end up into two separate nodes. If they are parented again this creates even more nodes.
This is similar to FBX internally I guess. But at the end it makes no difference as matrices can be combined without a huge cost.
