Media and 3D Models
Along with basic shapes, you can also add media, such as images, sounds, and 3D models to your scene. To add media, hover over the Media option in the ‘+’ menu and select the desired item to add. A file browser will appear to allow you to choose the media you want to add to your scene.
A curved image is regular image but it’s slightly bent to please the user’s eye when in VR.
An image is a 4x3 plane shape, with its Src property set to an image file that you choose.
You can add sounds with file type mp3 and m4a. You can control playback of those sounds using the actions panel, when the sound is selected.
Collada is a 3D file format that’s quite common. Typically you’ll want to add files that are considered low-poly so that the file size is smaller.
Obj models are another common 3D file format. Typically it comes as two files; .obj for the geometry of the model, and .mtl for the material (surface/appearance) of the model.
3D Models from Google Poly
The best source for Obj files for VR and WebVR is Google Poly. Ottifox has built in support for Google Poly, allowing you to search and add 3D models directly from the app.
To add a model file from Google Poly, click the Google Poly icon next to the ‘+’ button. Search for the model you want, then click the thumbnail to add it to your scene. A downloading indicator will appear next to the Poly icon when the model is being downloaded into your scene.
On export, Ottifox will automitcally add credit to the model’s author in the Splash screen of the exported project.
