Assign Cached MASH spheres sperate shaders to


I am currently working on a project where spheres created from MASH are bouncing around. Each sphere has it's own shader. I want to bake the animation and have a performance friendly animated mesh i can reassign shaders to each sphere. I tried alembic cache but i lose object ID afterwards. It seems to be such a simple task but i can't put my head around it user added image

Could someone run me through a viable process? user added image

Thanks in advance!

Hello again,
If anyone needs the same answer:

Okay the easy fix here is to check
-UV write
-Write Color Sets
-Write Face Sets
-Write UV Sets
in the alembic export Options
Then when reimporting the alembic mesh the connection to the shaders is still active. So i can edit shaders on the spheres even in alembic!

Thanks me!
