a lot of vfx studios have been moving towards a USD pipeline, for all their DCCs, and I’m not surprised that Touchdesigner decided an early adoption of this standard, since the major Spring 2019 update
But correct me if I’m wrong, at the moment Touchdesigner does not write USD files. But isn’t it something that goes against the logic of USD, that enables the robust, scalable interchange and augmentation of arbitrary 3D scenes? Interchange means that you can import, but also export your USD files. If you can’t export, then you have a bottleneck in your pipeline: no more pipeline efficiency and collaboration!
Any plan in extending USD in Touchdesigner, with an option to export USD files?
