What is GLTF
GLTF (GL Transmission Format) is an open-source file format for 3D models and scenes. It is designed to be efficient, compact and easy to use, with a focus on real-time rendering and efficient transmission over the internet.
GLTF is based on the JSON standard, and it uses the binary glTF format for efficient storage and transmission of 3D models and scenes. It also includes support for a wide range of features such as textures, materials, animations, and skinning.
One of the key advantages of GLTF is that it is an open-source format, which means that it is free to use and can be easily integrated into a wide range of applications and platforms. It is also supported by a wide range of 3D modeling and rendering software, such as Blender, SketchUp, and Three.js, making it easy to create, edit, and view GLTF files.
GLTF is widely used in Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality and 3D web, game development, CAD and other 3D applications. It is designed to be an efficient format for 3D models and scenes, allowing for faster loading times and reduced bandwidth usage when transmitting models and scenes over the internet.
