alembic 1.8.6

Alembic is an open computer graphics interchange framework. Alembic distills complex, animated scenes into a non-procedural, application-independent set of baked geometric results. This 'distillation' of scenes into baked geometry is exactly analogous to the distillation of lighting and rendering scenes into rendered image data. Alembic is focused on efficiently storing the computed results of complex procedural geometric constructions. It is very specifically NOT concerned with storing the complex dependency graph of procedural tools used to create the computed results. For example, Alembic will efficiently store the animated vertex positions and animated transforms that result from an arbitrarily complex animation and simulation process which could involve enveloping, corrective shapes, volume-preserving simulations, cloth and flesh simulations, and so on. Alembic will not attempt to store a representation of the network of computations (rigs, basically) which are required to produce the final, animated vertex positions and animated transforms.

1.8.630 Dec 2023 13:50 minor bugfix: Thanks to your feedback pull requests and submitted issues we have a few bug fixes and build enhancements. CMake: Introduce CPacke to top level CMake. (PR 425) AbcCoreOgawa: Fix typo in a comment. (PR 417) AbcGeom: Fix bug with OCurves, ONuPatch, OPoints, OPolyMesh, and OSubD were not properly incrementing their number of set samples when using setFromPrevious. (PR 433) Util: Fix default values for float PODTraits. (PR 422) Windows: Support compiling with mingw. (PR 434) Explicitly call CreateFileA and CreateFileMappingA (instead of CreateFile and CreateFileMapping) since we are using std::string to open the file. (PR 435) AbcStitcher: Introduce -hold argument which will use the previous set sample instead of setting an empty sample for missing samples. (PR 432)
