Ready for your Party Bear to show off its slick dance moves? Now you can with 3D models for Party Bears arriving in the Underground from 02/11/22 9PM UTC. In addition to your current PNG, MP4 & GIF formats, you will now be able to download FBX & glTF files of your Party Bear. So what does this mean for the average bear? Strap in and find out.
Creativity is at the heart of everything we do, and we want to empower our community to flex their creative muscles. That’s why you have full commercial and creative IP rights over your assets. Want to create a brand using your Party Bear? Or what about a cartoon on the adventures your Party Bear has in the metaverse? Go ahead, we’d love to see it!
To enable you to do this we’re providing you with the quality, game-ready digital assets you need to make your vision a reality. Here’s a quick summary of the new file formats you have access to.
A .fbx file is a 3D model saved in the Autodesk Filmbox format. It contains a model that can be used and shared across a variety of digital modeling and content creation programs, including the Autodesk suite of applications. FBX files are often used in game development and animation.
glTF (GL Transmission Format) is a 3D file format that stores 3D model information in JSON format. The use of JSON minimizes both the size of 3D assets and the runtime processing needed to unpack and use those assets. It was adopted for the efficient transmission and loading of 3D scenes and models by applications.
Having these files at your disposal doesn’t mean much if you’re unable to use them. That’s why we’ve created a beginner-friendly tutorial to get you started.
Follow along with our Studio Manager, Ryan Gould, as he shows you how to get your files into Blender, and some animation basics to start you on your animation journey.
