What are the file extensions supported by Augmania for 3D animations?

Augmania supports different file extensions on its creator. You can upload any 3D object that has a JSON extension: JSON stands for JavaScript Object Notation, a standard data interchange format which stores simple data structures that is used for transmitting data between a web application and a server. JSON files are lightweight, text-based, human-readable, and can be edited using a text editor.

Another format supported by Augmania is the OBJ extension which stands for Wavefront OBJect. It is used to store information about 3D models. The OBJ file is also lightweight and small in size. But, if you are looking to upload animations in your campaign then OBJ is not the right extension for this, as it doesn't support scene information and animations. It's better to use FBX extension for this, which is supported by Augmania.

FBX is a file extension for 3Ds and video-related content. It is used to provide interoperability between digital content creation applications. You can used easily to upload cool animations and make your campaign more interactive.

The new update in Augmania is that it is now supporting the glTF extension 🎉 🎉

So the glTF is a one-size fits all file format designed to let you move 3D files seamlessly between applications while retaining a consistent PBR workflow, in other words and as creators put it , the glTF is like the JPEG of 3D. It is more user friendly and loads faster when uploaded to user's phone screen :)

New Update: We've recently integrated gITF 2 format file, this means that you don't have to worry anymore about the file extension yo are uploading to the creator as regardless of its type, it will be automatically converted to gITF 2 which is more efficient in preserving the models texture, scale and material.

One last note, the maximum file size for 3D animations supported by Augmania is 50MB. However, we recommend using smaller file sizes, as the smaller the file the faster it loads on the screen!
