So it's been a year since the last post in this thread. Still nothing? I really miss this feature.

This bug still seems to exist and is really getting in the way of our company pipeline.
I did some digging and seems like blenders vertex normals are exported to point normals

I created one here https://developer.blender.org/T60977
It's best to create a new bug report, with all the required information and .blend / .abc file to reproduce the issue.

Could someone test this again in Maya?
I dont seem to get any vertex color info into Maya here even though re importing the abc back into blender does work.
Tested it myself here using the daily builds of blender 2.8, official 2.79 and daily 2.79.

The curve loses its Geometry settings. In the example file the curves have depth and a full Fill Mode to them but once imported they switch back to the default settings of newly created curves.
The curve type is switched to paths instead of bezier.
I think the best solution for the studio right now would be to have the option to export curves as meshes like already mentioned here: T51311

Already committed in rB196a5116aa2f: Fix T59164: Run Alembic in background when INVOKE'd.

MarkScene.ABC is hardly a minimal test file, it has over 5000 objects in it. Also, there are objects named ?????????#56_002, which to me indicates that there are more things wrong with this file.

This is more complicated than it needs to be, there is no need for UV hashing if we are going to compare them directly.

This patch appears to be against an old version of the code, please update it to latest master.
@Sybren A. Stüvel (sybren), could you look into this? I have neither the Blender sources nor my Alembic files on my computer at the moment. Overall, apart from some style issues it looks good to me.

OKi, closing then
You can close this, I contacted SideFX, its a bug in the Houdini exporter and not Blender. Apologies for any time wasted

Hm, seems I cant reproduce (a crash).
[Same for 2.79 master and 2.79b btw.]
@Sybren A. Stüvel (sybren) : mind having a look?
I have attached a simplified .abc that is still able to reproduce the crash.
Please try to reproduce with something you can share publicly.
(there might be multiple people involved in such a report and exchanging assets between all those persons via mail is just not practical).

We are seeing a couple of issues here (possibly we'll be splitting these in distinct reports if neccessary):
Attached is a scene from 3ds max with no animation exported as Alembic. Blender 2.8 crashes when I import this.

we need the updated .abc as well...
I have done a lower resolution test with the same track animation for the camera.
Interestingly, the camera is not animated in the ABC file.. That being said, it no longer crashed. Files attached
@Jesse (FreakTheMighty) : cant reproduce.
in 2.79, the provided FBX wont import Focal Length [but that is expected since rBAb890f0d7e8a6 isnt included]
in 2.79b (or onwards), the provided FBX will import Focal Length [bunch of keyframes, but all very similar -- around 8.1/8.2mm]
crashes in 2.79 as well
