Sybren Stüvel writes about his plans for improved Alembic supports. This might impact the workflow and could require having to re-load Alembic files ito your projects, so he's looking for feedback too.
Blender 2.78 saw basic Alembic support for both import and export. The initial patch was provided by DwarfLabs, and was then integrated into Blender by Kévin Dietrich. For the previous month, I (Sybren) have been working on bringing Alembic to the next level, and that work isn’t done yet. This means that things are going to change; for the better, of course, but it may also mean requiring a re-export of your Alembic files. In this blog post I want to sketch my plans, and collect feedback from you, our dear Alembic users.
