Everyone is welcome on the Google Meet linked below every other Thursday, at 17:00 CEST.
Present: Bastien Montagne, Brecht Van Lommel, Brian Savery, Charles Wardlaw, Matt McLin, Micheal Kowalski, Sybren Stüvel
The meeting covers the pipeline & I/O module in a broader sense, including some topics hosted in other modules (e.g. some I/O python add-ons, or overrides and .blend file I/O from the Core module).

Collections for Import/Export Design & USD
Michael has been testing and experimenting with the dynamicly linked USD libraries in the branch.
Library changes are likely to land in master very soon, Brian has been working on polishing support for these.
Brian is also working on finalizing the Hydra scene delegate on Blender side. This is still a target for Blender 3.5.
Charles has been working on a CI patch, Sybren will finalize the review next week.
Brecht raises the topic of how to handle the IO options and meta-data handling.
- IO operators
- drag and drop
- Collection IO
- geometry nodes (import nodes)
- Asset system (assets from non-blend files).
An abstraction layer is needed to extend and make current operators code more flexible and easy to use in various contexts. Brecht will write some key ideas down in a design task.
Bastien will not be available in December to host the module meetings. So the next meeting will likely be on Thursday 12th January, 17:00 CET/Amsterdam time (your local time: 2023-01-12T16:00:00Z).
The provisional meeting agenda will be linked in the #pipeline-assets-io-module channel before the meeting.
