[Feature Request] Alembic import and Houdini simulation caches.

Alembic import would be a blast : D

Also some kind of connection to Houdinis hsc would be nice.
In general some kind of bridge / import from Houdini projects would be awesome.
Here is some example how pfx handles this.

Hey Patrik,

Alembic -
We’ve looked into it before, but are currently focused on better C4D support. With that said, if there is enough interest we are open to the idea.

Houdini -
Not for now. We have Blender pcache support and Real Flow import /export support, so it’s not something we are against. Again, with enough interest we could look into it.



Hi Patrick,

Just an update on this: Alembic support is now on the schedule for a new release coming up.


Great news about the alembic support!

Second the request for better Houdini integration!
Theres a huge demand for experienced Houdini devs and artists for more realtime options.

While different types of integrations aren’t out of the question in the future, our experience is that people fluent in Houdini often finds Notch to be “the real-time version of Houdini”, and that’s probably a good way to think about it.
