Hi all,

Recently I have been learning to use Clarisse iFX in conjunction with Lightwave. Clarisse's preferred method for importing data in through Alembic. Unfortunately, Lightwave's Alembic exporter seems to not export all of the scene data that it it could. Specifically, Lightwave's exporter seems to only export vertex positions of objects. It does not export camera animation, light animation, or surface information.

I don't have it so I cannot test it but I have been told that the Octane plugin for Lightwave comes with an Alembic exporter and it properly exports all of the data, so it is possible for the format to include this data. Can we please have a more fully featured Alembic exporter?

Thanks.

Gosh ! Is there an alembic exporter ? Where ? I can just find an alembic loader in 11.6.2.
I'm interested in Clarisse iFX too, and also in AppleseedHQ

OK, found it in the md multi-baker. I will try it with ApplessedHQ.
