Alembic doesn't export all packed geometry

Recommended Posts

I have @20k points on which i'm copy stamping 20 different objects. On the copy stamp i'm packing the geo and then i export it with an alembic rop. When I import in Maya I only have like 10% of the whole geometry, any idea why?

A workaround I found would be to pack  all the geometry stamped on points as a whole big mesh but that obviously gives me huge file sizes and doesn't take advantage of the whole instancing :( .

My bad I haven't mentioned that the point count is not constant (it's debris emission) and when i export with frame range on the alembic,  only the points that were existent on the first frame are exported along with the animations they have on them for the length of the export range.
