    Hi!

    I am trying to visualize an alembic file in VR with an Oculus Quest 2.

    I have imported the Oculus Integrations and the Alembic packages, I'm running the ControllerTest patch on my VR set (and it works just fine) but once I add the Alembic file, it won't see it.

    When I import the Alembic Package i get this WARNING

    Shader warning in 'HDRenderPipeline/LitAlembic': HDRenderPipeline/LitAlembic shader is not supported on this GPU (none of subshaders/fallbacks are suitable)
    Although, I get no error on the console when I build and run, the Alembic file just doesn't appear in the Oculus.
    Any clue why this is happening?

    Thanks
    Leo

    Hi @scarscarin, the high-definition render pipeline only supports PC VR headsets. You'll need to use the universal render pipeline or built-in render pipeline for the Quest 2.

    Hi @mfuad
    Thanks for your reply! I built the same environment on Universal Render Pipeline but when I import the alembic package I get the same warning. Does that mean I can't display alembic files on oculus quest 2?

    Hi @scarscarin, the Alembic format is not intended for mobile platforms as it is too expensive. As such, it is only supported on 64-bit desktop platforms (Windows, macOS, Linux). You can find those requirements in the Alembic package documentation.

    Hi @mfuad
    Is it the same limitation with the Quest 3 ?

    Yes, the quest is still not a PC platform (;
    Check the documentation

    Thanks.
    I indeed just read in the Unity documentation that the latest Alembic version is available only on Windows, IOS and Linux :(
