Facebook 3D Posts are here

In case you haven’t heard, Facebook quietly released the 3D Posts API.

Basically it’s a mini-sketchfab to showcase 3D models. No animation, no lighting, no post effects “yet”.

The question is, will we at some point be able to showcase our playcanvas work on a facebook timeline?

For now, the process is not completely straight forward, you have to convert any 3D assets to GLB, which is a packaged glTF

All the info here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/sharing/3d-posts

Any hope for future integration @will @dave @max @Mr_F @vaios ?

The first question that comes to mind is if you guys see a way of repackaging a playcavas scene back into a glTF or even an FBX. That could pave the way to at some point convert that to GLB and post to a facebook timeline straight from our games or scenes using facebooks API.

Not an actual question, just looking for insight…

THANKS!

Anyone? Thoughts? Hello?

At he moment it seems they only support a model rather than a ‘scene’.

I would probably have a bunch of models/assets on a server somewhere to link/reference for these type of posts which is what historically is done.

Are you thinking more of composition of scenes?
