Alembic Export Issue In Houdini 13

I'm trying to export a simple scene using alembic ROP output surface driver node in Houdini FX 13.0.198.21

using default setting with a new Format parameter set to Default .

When i open the abc in maya it gives me error saying that

"File is not a valid alembic file"

Format option HDF5 work perfectly fine .

Does anyone else also face the same issue?

I'm attaching a sample hip file.

hi!

the default format on the alembic rop is set to "default" is ogawa (alembic 1.5), make sure you choose hdf5, until maya supports the new version.

You can also convert between ogawa and hdf5 using the Houdini command line app 'abcconvert':

abcconvert -toHDF  myhdf.abc myogawa.abc
abcconvert -toOgawa myogawa.abc myhdf.abc

You can determine which version an Alembic file is with 'abcinfo' (among other useful bits of information). You'll need at least build 220 for these apps.
