An Alembic ABC file is a widely used data interchange format in the computer graphics and visual effects industries. It was developed by Sony Pictures Imageworks and Industrial Light & Magic and is designed to store and exchange animated 3D geometry and other visual data efficiently. The term "Alembic" is derived from the alchemical device used for distillation, reflecting its purpose to capture and distill complex 3D scenes into a compact and portable format. ABC files provide a means to transfer complex animations and scenes between different software applications, allowing artists and studios to work seamlessly across various tools and platforms.

The Alembic ABC file format excels in its ability to handle massive datasets with multiple animated elements efficiently. It stores geometric information, vertex positions, normals, UV coordinates, and animation data such as vertex animations, skeletal deformations, and camera movements. This makes it a powerful asset in animation pipelines for film, television, gaming, and other visual media. Additionally, ABC files are highly compressed, enabling faster data transfer and reduced storage requirements without sacrificing data integrity, making them an ideal choice for handling complex 3D animations.

With Alembic's broad support in major 3D software packages, such as Autodesk Maya, Blender, Houdini, and Cinema 4D, among others, artists and technical directors can easily import and export ABC files, fostering collaboration and workflow integration across different software environments. As a result, Alembic ABC files have become an essential part of the modern animation and visual effects industry, enabling efficient and reliable data exchange and contributing to streamlined production processes and creative flexibility.

The BLEND file extension is the native 3D modelling file format of the ever-popular Blender 3D modelling software. The Blender format originally came into existence in late 1994 and has since evolved into the advanced 3D format we have today.

The format stores complex 3D mesh data along with textures, animations, lighting, and other information related to 3D scene rendering. The format is popular among those creating 3D videogame graphics and animation sequences due to its advanced features and ease of use.

Along with Blender, BLEND files can also be imported into other popular 3D editing software. The open-source nature of the format allows third-party plugins and scripts to be created to run within the Blender editing environment and extend the format's capabilities.
