    I Love This Forum

    I get to meet and hang out with William Shatner this Wednesday... just me and him... WhoooHoooo! I've lived quite a life... the original Starship captain... Anyone have any questions I should ask? DB

    Motion capture & root rotation

    I had serious issues capturing into Blender. I ran my Kinect(s) into MotionBuilder and then exported FBX to Blender without any problems. In working with motion capture for 20+ years, I see too many problems with capturing into Blender right now; until someone writes a proper plugin which is simple to use. DB
  3. As @jerome mentions, a PG scene will provide you with many responses and hopefully a solution for your specific issue. However, if you aren't familiar with the Optimization of LOD, then here are the docs: https://doc.babylonjs.com/how_to/in-browser_mesh_simplification DB

    Updating text on dynamic texture

    @Varsha Kamble Your math is incorrect. The font that you use is not able to fit in the math you set for the length of your plane and dynamic texture. If you still have issues, then I can easily build a PG scene which accommodates any text. But I hope you can identify your errors in expecting the font to fit within the mesh. DB

    I Love This Forum

    Hey Devs and All, I'm just feeling a bit sentimental about how far this forum has come the past 4 years. @Deltakosh and @davrous ( + others) have given us a creative outlet that has turned into a new frontier. I just wanted to say how much I appreciate that I am able to come to a place that provides me not only technical advice, but I've made many new friends as well. Much love to you all. DB
  6. Hey @jdavid It's all in the math. Look at the least common hardware you want to support, and do an evaluation of vertices, materials, and textures. Always use a power 2 texture until we enter full support of WebGL 2.0. I always look at my code as a water pipe and a bathtub... how much water can I push through the pipe and how much water can the bathtub hold? DB

    About creating dynamic avatars

    You can dispose of meshes, materials, and textures at anytime. And I often use the RunAfterRender() function to apply different attributes to the scene. However, there are may ways to do this... so RunAfterRender() may not work for your scene. However, if you have a command of JavaScript, then this should be simple... as the babylon.js framework has all the functions in place. If you need more assistance, then post a playground scene. DB
  8. I hold at a solid 60 fps. what device are you testing and what browser? DB

    Optimize scene

    As you can convert React/Redux scenes to Vue, I suggest you look at what @brianzinn has posted on GitHub. DB

    video texture Sync issue, plz help~~~

    Hi @jadeshohy What you're trying to achieve is INCREDIBLY HARD and is a holy grail in my opinion. However, my company has an app that's going into beta which perfectly syncs all media precisely in all HTML5 browsers in real time for an unlimited number of users collaborating together with generally less than 5ms delay in interaction... internationally... on average, of course, depending on your connection.. We're still working on the API to the server (Brains) - don't know when we'll release the API for the server... however if you want to test what we've done, let me know if you want to apply for the beta release. You won't find anything that a good JS Dev can build as it's mostly written in PHP ( a royal challenge), and we also use two servers. One is the brains and the other holds the media and database... so it's completely secure for the media and the brains of it all - which was our challenge for the film and broadcast industry. It's like Photoshop online in real time for any media and unlimited users. A reply to this message won't trigger my memory to add you to the beta list, however we deploy in two weeks to Weta in NZ, Blue Man Productions, and a division of Lockheed Martin, as we also sync collaborative 3D media in real time. So I've got my hands full right now. But I'll try and post a topic to those who might be the best to test the app. It's not all WebGL... only when you launch collaborative 3D media, but we've spent more than 5+ years building the server and more than 2 years building the application. However we're only 2 developers, with a little help from our friend to get us into PHP ( @Pryme8 ... reclusive bastard, you made my life hell - but I now know PHP, so I guess I owe you)... and I will call you (Andy) this week. If not, call me and I'll show a REAL interface. Cheers, DB

    Multiple Scenes Approach

    @freetoplay Similar perhaps... But instances or clones, absolutely. DB

    Render an OBJ string with Babylon JS?

    @Bladetrick I hope you have good luck with trying to implement the asset manager to do the work. However, the .OBJ, MTL, and texture file all have to be available at the time of import. I'm trying to implement this into a server database myself right now. We'll have something soon, but no code to share. However, I'll do my best to keep you posted on how we accomplished this for multiple real time users. Just message me in a week or two if you aren't able to solve yourself. I don't use Json files, so I can't add to any discussion on Json. DB

    Mesh.dispose() Clarity

    @Deltakosh It's old habit from a few versions back. Are you saying that disposing of a single mesh also disposes of all attributes of the mesh including materials, textures, shaders, etc? We're not talking scene dispose. But if mesh dispose works this way, then what about shared attributes? Thanks, DB

    registerOnPhysicsCollide With Any

    There's no current access, but I can zip and send the app to you. Message me your email, as I have a new computer and haven't updated my contacts. DB

    Got wrong screen coordinates

    This needs to be accomplished using vanilla JavaScript. Here is a simple app to pick pixels on a canvas and message the (X, Y) values: Does this help? DB
