Alembic Exporter for DAZ Studio is confusing to me- (nothing new.) Does this work with, say, Lightwave? Is it just for animations? Totally lost. Below is the product description. It’s 50% off plus you can use your PC coupon for another $6 off as it’s a DO.
The Alembic format is used in production pipelines involving many of the top 3D modeling/animation applications.
With this exporter plugin for DAZ Studio you gain the ability to use DAZ Studio assets, as well as “Vertex Exact” animations, in your favorite 3D modeling/animation applications.
One possible pipeline where the Alembic exporter will be useful is when doing the following:
Animate a figure such as Victoria 6 in DAZ Studio
Export to Alembic format
Import Alembic file into preferred 3D application
Set up surfaces, lighting and cameras
The animation of Victoria 6 will deform exactly the same in the target 3D application as it did in DAZ Studio due to the way Alembic handles animation.
