H,

yes adding poly subdivision to smooth the angle of the triangulate alembic shape.

In maya pushing the 3 button on keyboard add subdivision to the mesh, on #dsmax i can add a smooth/turbosmooth modifier for exemple

i tryed all the parametters but i probably miss something.

the abc file i try to smooth is link

Hi,

Click on the object.
Go to attribute editor.
Enable Subdivision Surface.
Adjust the subdivision level.

Yes, if you import your alembic through File > Reference > File you will have the same attribute as in my screenshot. However, if you want to use bundles you have to add a "Subdivision" custom attribute to your objects if you want them subdivided.

You can watch this tutorial if you want more info about subdivision.
