๐Ÿค–Web Avatars

Among the variety of files we are providing for the Knittables, we have created a version that is compatible with web applications (e.g: Portal). These avatars are plug and play for all the applications that read .glb files. Find all the 10,000 Knitables .glb files here !

WebGL enables your browser to run 2-d and 3-d rendering natively without installing any additional plugin. It also enables the browser to use the hardware GPU to perform graphic calculations instead of your CPU. This means the graphic rendering would work better and most importantly it would work. Not all 3D rendering features are currently supported by WebGL and there are some concessions that need to be made. Even though this is most likely to change and evolve in the future, we managed to make most of the features from our collection work - at the moment, the main limitation to glb files is how transparency is being interpreted. It is either full opaque or full transparent. We will look into improving this in the future and update the data

In the future, we will token gate the access to the files to the Knittables holders, but for the time being, we don't want to lock the current features and update the metadata, knowing that there will be improvements in the current fast-growing tech environement. What are you waiting for? Download your avatar and try it out! If you have a favourite web application that supports WebGL, head right to it and upload your avatars if it allows it. If you don't have a favourite program, you are welcome to connect to the Portal Metaverse by following these few steps:

1) Go to: https://theportal.to/downtown

2) Click "Upload Avatar GLB"

3) Select your avatar and upload

4) Tweak a few settings, so that the character looks right. We recommand using following values: size:1 feet spacing: 0.3 & hand spacing: 0.5. &FixedSize=1&feetSpacing=0.3&handSpacing=0.5 (you can copy paste this portion of text at the end of the link displayed after having imported your avatar)
