USD - Universal Scene Description


I am curious about how many of you are now using, or are planning to use, USD? Like so many technologies, the switch from whatever you use today to USD is a significant change and I am curious how people are tackling that.

We’re not using it yet, but we’ve had some conversations about it at the company. Seeing how it could fit into our asset creation pipeline. What about you @david?

BTW, welcome to the forum!

Hi Rodolphe - nice to hear from you. It has been a long time since we chatted. I like the forum, will do my best to actively participate.

My company - Yadle - has developed some AI tech to allow object identification from geometry in a variety of 3D formats, including USD. No rendering needed to determine that there is a “guitar” in a scene file. Imagine being able to do things like “find all 3D files that contain a guitar AND a bottle”. That is what we are doing.

We made a commitment to USD about 2 years ago. All of our internal analysis and AI for 3D works on USD.
