Hi everybody! I had a question for the community: What do you think about SketchFab for 3D previews of content?
Example of the Chess set from yesterday’s Marketplace content release: https://sketchfab.com/models/4c01bfaa7bab4da0ad653bc23daa9b8f
I think it’s pretty awesome, and a great way to present content to potential buyers. However, I haven’t worked with it directly, and I was wondering how the community felt about it. Have you worked with Sketchfab before? What’s good and bad about it? How easy is it to set up, what’s the cost, and are there any security concerns or other limitations that may not be immediately obvious? Obviously this would only be usable for characters and props and not Blueprints, VFX, or audio, but what’s it like with animations?
We don’t have a near-term solution for being able to easily preview content like this, but I’d seen a couple submitters use Sketchfab and I thought it was clever. I was thinking that if this would be a good way to present your content that’s easy for people to do, I might suggest Sketchfab to people submitting content to Marketplace to make their presentations awesome. If I can help people sell and present well, I absolutely will. But I want to make sure I know everything I can about it first, and I don’t want to promote using it if it’s expensive or difficult or insecure. So that’s why I wanted to start by asking the community their opinions on using Sketchfab before I do or say anything official.
Thanks in advance!
