    - ABC file needs to be exported by using XGen option: Collection -> File -> Export patches for batch render.
    - XGen assets are supported with one restriction that they all need to be in the standard xgen directory in your workspace.
    example: if your workspace is "C:/maya/project" and your scenes are in "C:/maya/project/scenes", then all XGen assets should be in "C:/maya/project/xgen"
