@Dorian Fevrier (Narann) thanks for the explanation. We're still looking for actual files to show off the amazing things that can be done now (as in, showing is better than telling).

This all sounds good to me.

As you can see in D8869: Alembic export: write custom properties, we're very close to having custom properties exported to Alembic. Can anyone help me out with some jazzy example file that really shows off the spectacular results that can be had with this new feature? We'd like to use that when announcing the feature for Blender 2.91.
From my side seems all fine!
- Added clarification in a comment, and call the proper function abc_schema_prop_for_custom_props().
- Removed some code that shouldn't be in this patch.

@Sybren A. Stüvel (sybren) sorry for the lack of information. I am importing into Blender, I tested the ABC export in these two ways:
In hindsight, I don't think this should be an option at all we should just always export everything. Export performance matters, but correctness should be the default.

This patch is outdated, and instancing will be handled in a different way in the future.

To elaborate a bit more: a Blender camera without transformation points straight down. The Alembic file is written in such a way that when Maya (or other software, they seem to expect Maya-orientation too) loads it, it still points straight down.
Maya and Blender have different default camera orientations. See rB7c5a44c71f13 for more details.

Added back some code that got lost when I removed the refactor from this patch.
- Separated move of "is visibile" function into its own commit.
- Feedback from Sergey

I've updated the manual for the 1st point in my previous comment. This leaves the "don't load Alembic mesh when drawing as bounding box" feature, which is interesting but will have to be designed & planned separately.
As I see it, there are two different things reported here:

Thanks for the quick answer @Cody Winchester (CodyWinch) and thanks for this patch !
I really hope that we could push the abc animated UV import/export to support multi-channel animated UVs 🤞
@Sybren A. Stüvel (sybren) do you have any idea about where the problem could be lying ?
