@Leon Zandman (lzandman) Hi Leon. I found the issue: due to an oversight on my part, the render preview worked for Eevee but not Cycles. I pushed a fix to the branch. I very much appreciate your testing and feedback, which helped me address these two bugs. Thank you!

@Leon Zandman (lzandman) To reply to your first comment: importing USDZ wasn't a specific requirement of this task, but I'm sure the importer will be extended to handle this format at some point.

Yes, my original branch usd-importer-T81257 has logic for merging an Xform and prim into a single object. I will port this code to the usd-importer-T81257-merge branch as well. Thanks for pointing this out.

As an update, I recently extended the USD importer experimental instancing option to support collection instances, to allow editing of instance prototypes after import. (The change is committed to the usd-importer-T81257 branch.)
