PowerMesh Alembic Camera Focal length

When exporting PowerMesh to a 3D scene via Alembic, can I set the focal length and filmback on the camera?

Or better yet, bring in my existing 3D camera?

That is a very good feature request I will let @martinb know about. I am pretty sure you have to basically use the camera we give you. But. We are looking to make 3D features in Mocha more robust.

Here’s the alembic workflow: Boris FX | Mocha® 2022 User Guide

Currently, the camera for the export is only to get the right projection for the source size you’re using, so a focal length and aperture are baked in.
But I can see if we can modify that based on the focal length you need.

In the meantime, since the mesh is essentially a 2D mesh with zero Z depth you could composite any projected focal length you need to combine with this one.

Any updates on this?

Still no specific focal length for this.

There’s some new things coming that will probably help, but not until the next major version.
