2023-04-20 Pipeline, Assets & I/O Meeting

Everyone is welcome on the Google Meet linked below every other Thursday, at 17:00 CEST.

Present: Bastien Montagne, Matt McLin, Michael Johnson.

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).



Michael submitted a PR to fix support of opacityThreshold when exporting USD.

Discussion also went over support for instancing geometry in Blender.

Next Meeting

The next meeting will be on Thursday 04th May, 17:00 CEST/Amsterdam time (your local time: 2023-05-04T15:00:00Z).

The provisional meeting agenda will be linked in the #pipeline-assets-io-module channel before the meeting.

Hey guys, please don’t forget about the @KevinDietrich patch to support attribute import in Alembic files, it’s not possible to have an advanced workflow with Alembic files (advanced simulation) without this, and AFAIK it’s practically finished since a version ago, I just used it in a project with great success


Oh I didn’t know that patch was merged!
Are you taking about this one?

Also you know if this one was merged? I think it was kind of related


Nothing has been merged into master, @KevinDietrich did a build that I’ve been using, but it’s 3.5 alpha, I’ll upload it to graphicall, without that build my current project would have rendered impossible to do with Blender, so I’m very grateful for it :slight_smile:

Kevin was going to prepare some patches but I’m not sure if he had time yet for it.
