instant3Dhub asset format gets standardized: Khronos presents glTF 1.0

20.10.2015 Uncategorized

The Khronos Group, an open consortium of leading hardware and software companies, just announced that the glTF™ 1.0 (GL Transmission Format ) royalty-free specification for transmission and loading of 3D content has been finalized for Ratification and is immediately available for use by tools and application vendors.


With SRC, Fraunhofer IGD already provides support for a modified subset of an earlier version of glTF™. The proposed extensions KHR_binary_glTF and WEB3D_quantized_attributes have been actively developed by a team of experts, including the instant3Dhub team. This development will be bridging the gap between Khronos’ and the Web3D consortium’s standards, and it will help to ensure that instant3Dhub keeps using well-specified, standard technology. This makes instant3Dhub even safer for long-term use and helps us to ensure backwards compatibility.

Edit: The German IT portal just mentioned glTF in a small online article (in German) – you can find it here.
