With the Windows 10 Creators Update being targeted at 3D creation, it was just a matter of time before the usual “what format does it use?” talk would surface. We finally have an answer. Aside from Microsoft’s own formats, popular industry standards will also be available within the new 3D ecosystem.
In a blog post, Microsoft announced that they are joining a group over at Khronos in order to collaborate on their glTF format.
“Earlier this week, at the Microsoft Windows 10 Event, we shared our vision around 3D for everyone in New York. As part of achieving that vision we are delighted to share that Microsoft is joining the 3D Formats working group at Khronos to collaborate on its GL Transmission Format (glTF).”
“We look forward to collaborating with the community and our industry partners to help glTF deliver on its objectives and achieve broad support across many devices and applications. To further the openness goal, we will continue our open source contributions including further development of glTF support in the open source frameworks such as BabylonJS.”
