I tried the Tree.abc file in Houdini 17.0 and it does not work. When I unpack the data, I can see that a 4 float vector is written, but that is wrong, it should be only a 3 float vector. Even when I promote (or wrangle) the data into an attribute @Cd, that the viewport expects, all the data is zero (i.e. black).

So why can't I fetch the mesh data block, from the .abc animation, in a frame change?
Shouldn't the Mesh Sequence Cache modifier correctly present the current mesh data block, to the API, for the frame it is displaying?
Why does the frame change code fail?

I re-conducted the import test on Windows 7 downloading the new file I posted.
This does produce working results. However, the result in 2.79 are wrong while the results in 2.78c are correct.
It does look like the original attached file was corrupted on upload somehow? I am re-uploading the same exact file, which does work on both Houdini 16.5.332 and Blender 2.79. I have removed the bad file from the first post.

This file's geometry does import into Houdini, but the color information is still missing. Even with an Unpack following up the Alembic import node.

I can verify that Philipp's cube export does not transfer color to Houdini.

I tried again at transferring a Houdini based animation to Blender via the Alembic file format. I discovered that if I actually give every Houdini object I want to transfer an attribute called name that Blender will create a Blender object for each Houdini object named. This solves the multiple material transfer problem I encountered previously as long as each object has only one material.

I did test out your file and confirmed that instancing does not work correctly. In this image you can see the white one in the middle is a dupligroup. Some kind of instancing attempt is being made, you can see the effect of the raytrace through the volume. Also that grey block on the left should be rendering as smoke (I see it in the viewport) but instead I just get a solid.

"You can just add same material volume to another mesh. "
@zearo: But what if I want more than one smoke system in a single scene? Am I back to just rendering cards again?

Hmm...I use this all the time and it seems to work for me.
Can't confirm on my Windows 7 64bit using Blender 2.70a. Using nVidia driver version 335.23.

I have added a new feature to the Blender 2.7 Import Images As Planes.

It also raises an exception in official 2.70 if the mesh is in edit mode.

I tried a recent build a with the test file I submitted and it does seem to be fixed as well.

Just an FYI, this build by JuicyFruit seems to have fixed the problem.
