can I export instances with alembic?

Can I export scattered objects as instances, not separate mesh for each? 3dMax supports instances in alembic for example. Does Clarisse now?

Hi,

No. Scattered instances in Clarisse are not yet exported as Alembic instances.
However, when importing a scatterer exported from Clarisse, Clarisse will still de-duplicate data even if the duplicate instances aren't flagged as instances in Alembic. But other 3D DCC apps might not.

Thanks anemoff, That would definitely be a nudge to buy new version for me since I love how easy scattering huge amount of things can be done in Clarisse.
