@Sebastian Parborg (zeddb) 'needs information from user" is when requiring info from user (reporter of the bug)… ;)

When you want a dev to check on a report and cannot confirm it yourself, just assign and leave it as untriaged. :)

Hi guys. Just found this bug in Blender. And searching brings me here.
I tried to export vertex color from Blender to Maya. Alembic the only format I found to have "vertex color".
And it's doesn't work. Maya can't see the color.

Is there some progress with a solution?

Note that FBX should also be able to export vertex color data?

Yeah, Bastien. In my case, I found the solution with FBX export.
