Sketchfab and 2D Animation

Sketchfab recently announced that it has become an official partner of Microsoft HoloLens, along with other amazing organizations such as NASA, Disney, Unity and Autodesk. The HoloLens was unveiled in January of this year. This device lets you bring virtual objects and scenes into your own environment, the best of both worlds between VR and AR.

 

Set up to test import of 2D animations into  Sketchfab.

A number of 2D animation programs exist that allow one to import 2D animations into Unity 3D, 3DS Max, Maya and other 3D animation and gaming software programs.  Some have direct FBX export capability.  However, these are not yet completely compatible with Sketchfab.   In the meantime, we find we can export animations from the 2D software directly into 3D animation software (e.g.,  3DS Max), make corrections and then import into Sketchfab.  Some very preliminary results are shown below:
