How to Create Multiple Object Versions With Bifrost USD

Bruce Lee walks through how to make multiple object versions using Bifrost USD nodes.

Maya 2023 also included some Bifrost updates, and one of the big ones was USD nodes. Bifrost USD lets you assemble, organize and edit assets procedurally right in the Bifrost Graph.

This new walkthrough from Bruce Lee shows how you can use one of USD’s features in Bifrost by creating multiple object versions in Bifrost USD.

“Bifrost-USD features both high-level compounds to easily and quickly populate a USD stage with layers and prims and low-level nodes that match the capabilities of the USD API. It is integrated with USD for Maya, letting you see, select, and adjust elements directly in the viewport.”
