That's definitely good news, I am sure there are more devs like you out
there who could help get this done. I looked tat the opengl format but like
@Juan said it's pretty opengl specific so would be pretty useless for
things outside of opengl world. Does Ton or Campbell or anyone else have
any issues moving forward with adding USD support to blender?
