Textures Resources in .babylon JSON


Recommended Posts

Hello guys,

I'm addressing this directly to the babylon devs:

From what I can read from examples using models with textures, the textures are always in separate image files. Are there any plans to include the textures as e. g. byte array directly inside the .babylon json? Or is there already a way to do so?

The background is that I would like to define a theme for a 3D scene I'm working on to contain models and also textures and the themes should be exchangable at runtime

So the best would be that the theme object contains everything. It would be great to have the babylon JSONs that I store in it also already contain the textures binaries.


Kind Regards

One solution could be for you to embed your textures as base64 images in a JSON. In your app you load and parse the JSON file (http://doc.babylonjs.com/tutorials/How_to_use_AssetsManager), and then create your babylon textures from that base64 images (same method as for pics).

If you prefer to store your textures in the .babylon file, you'll need to write your own data file, and a specific loader, based on the one already existing for the .babylon extension. BJS has already prepared such a process for you : http://doc.babylonjs.com/tutorials/How_to_Create_Your_Own_File_Importer

Have a nice day.
