Create an Alembic SOP inside a geo node. Like /obj/geo/alembic1

Point it to your Alembic file you exported via C4D, that should do the job.


Alternatively, you can use the Alembic Archive node in /obj level and import the geometry into your geo node using an Object Merge. 

In both cases, your geometry might be packed, so attach an unpack node below your import if you need to do any operations on the polygons or prepare it for collisions with Vellum.

I hope this helps.
