    Where is the Alembic support in LW11.6

    LightWave 11.6 introduces a new industry standard Alembic loader for importing object and cache data into Lightwave from any 3D application supporting the Alembic format. This added interchange functionality is added to LightWave's very strong support for FBX, After Effects, Autodesk Geometry Cache, LightWave MDD Cache, Collada, and the Unity game engine.


    Ok i understand that the Lightwave 11.6 that i have in my hands is a pre release but how can i test the alembic .abc files.
    Does anybody knows where can i find it because i dont see nothing.Thanks guys....

    They said it would be implemented later, with the final release, if I recall correctly. So no way to test it with the pre-release, I'm afraid.

    Arrggh, was just looking for the same thing. Thought I was going crazy.

    Really wanted to push out some objects via Alembic to C4D.

    I'm ready to do some Alembic testing. It's so easy to export Alembic, I hope it's just as easy to import it.

    Well we're on Lightwave 11.6.1, and it appears we an Alembic loader? No exporter yet though.
