So not in front of my PC right now but is it possible to export in alembic format from the latest version of iClone. I have a couple of characters I want to use in a water simulation in Blender and need to get them out of iClone with their animations.

Cheers

Been there, done that, got the t-shirt!

No, the function is only enabled if you have 3DXchange Pipeline installed.

@ JaffaDave

Export Alembic feature has been available since iClone6.5.

Pick the model and go to File/Export, then you will find Export Alebmic (and Export FBX).

@hirospot: Yes, the function has been available since iClone 6.5, but it requires for the user to have 3DXchange Pipeline. That was the question...Wink

The links you provided are still helpful though for users that have 3DXchange Pipeline and want to know more.
