Point Cache Reader

Point Cache Reader Version 0.10 is a tool we used in commercial production at Effects Garden. At this state it has proven its value for us in production but it is still a rough hack. We have not tested it in wildly different situations so it might fall short in specific cases as it has a narrow scope.

We would like to hear your feedback. We are considering making Point Cache Reader into a stable, tested production tool should we see enough demand. We have plenty of ideas for this tool.


  • Point Cache Reader reads files in the PC2 file format and applies the recorded animation to the object.
  • Point Cache Reader can change the frame rate for animation re-timing using linear interpolation for intermediate frames.
  • Point Cache Reader supports rendering of motion blur by using linear interpolation.
  • Point Cache Reader has limited support for RAM caching. So far only a handful of frames are kept in memory to speed up re-timing and motion blur.
