No option to import Alembic file .ABC

Hi, Im new to Unreal, migrating from unity and importing object animations from maya is not that easy as i thought ( FBX). I researched that you can also export an alembic file from a third party software and import it. i’ve seen several tutorial videos on how they do it. Just clicking on import and selecting the file. I have Unreal 4.7.6 and i can’t import an ABC file, its not in the list of recognized files. Any suggestions? Plugins? preferences i’m missing?

There is an Alembic Importer plugin. You can enable it by opening the plugin tab inside the editor. You’ll find the plugin under the Importers category.
