USD import support?
Pixar has open sourced their "Universal Scene Description" file format (www.openusd.org) that is getting a lot of support in the VFX world. Is there any thought of supporting that format, at least for import?
Pixar’s USD is definitely one of the formats we’re keeping our eyes on!
We don't have an exact list of file formats yet, but the ones we're considering first are .dae, .stl and .fbx as they are widely used and will allow us to start supporting some more advanced features.
A unified 3D format is something the entire industry is working towards, Pixar's USD and Microsoft 3MF are examples of this.

Ok, but what about Autodesk FBX, Kronos glTF or Microsoft 3MF ?
When shall we see a rich common file format for 3D ? It's a knightmare to find something working for everybody and/or software either for editing, rendering or sharing...

Also, Apple has built-in support for USD in all of their OSes (.usd files open in Preview and QuickLook in 10.12, for example).
