Import USD Python Bindings?

I have just started looking into USD in blender. In Maya 2022 you can import the USD python bindings directly and author USD files with python. For example I can do this in the maya script editor
from pxr import Usd, UsdGeom, UsdSkel

I was poking around in blender and wasnt able to find any USD python bindings. Do those exist and I am just missing them? Or are there plans to allow python scripts access to the USD library in the future?


we currently do not ship the USD python bindings so you’re not missing anything, they really aren’t there, as for shipping them, we currently ship/link USD statically, which stands in the way of shipping the bindings for at least some of the platforms. so it’ll remain to seen if/when we can ship them.

Take a look at GitHub - GPUOpen-LibrariesAndSDKs/BlenderUSDHydraAddon

We bundle USD and import ourselves…


Ok good to know! Really looking forward to when this is possible
