Shift from FBX to USD format?

Hi…,

I’ve heared there is a shift in the animation industry from the FBX to USD file format:

Is the USD format needed in Rhino?

Thanks

Well, at least I do not need another Autodesk format (FBX) and went with TensorFlow and PoseNet for manual moves of that human ergonomics model. Most of the engineering is generic anyways.

I don’t know anything about USD format but I see many potential use-cases with Rhino. Not just scenery also a timeline in architectural projects, BIM, logistics and product live cycle processes…

Do you plan to support it? Open source?
