Apple joins Pixar, Adobe, and others to form OpenUSD alliance for 3D Universal Scene technology

Apple has joined forces with Pixar, Adobe, Autodesk, NVIDIA, and Linux to support Pixar’s 3D Universal Scene Description technology. The alliance aims to standardize and enhance Open Universal Scene Description, making 3D interoperability between tools and data easier. The alliance intends to expand the range of 3D-enabled products and services. This new ecosystem will provide development and content creators an easier way to describe, compose, and simulate large-scale 3D projects. To enable adoption, the alliance will develop written specs outlining the features of OpenUSD and invite others to join the AOUSD forum for the collaborative definition of future enhancements to the technology.
