Alembic Open-source Exchange Format

The open-source exchange format solves a common challenge: how to share complex animated scenes across various disciplines and facilities regardless of the software being used. In essence, says a representative, “it distills complex and often proprietary, animated scenes into application-independent files with baked geometric results.”



Alembic has gained support from several industry solution providers, including: Autodesk Media & Entertainment, The Foundry, Luxology, Nvidia, RenderMan at Pixar Animation Studios, and Side Effects Software.
