Facebook launches support for glTF 2.0 for 3D posting

Facebook recently introduced 3D posts, which let people see and interact with a digital object from all sides in Facebook News Feed. It's instantly responsive to scroll and touch, making content pop off the screen. It also opens the door for a future where people can bring interesting objects and experiences with them across AR, VR, mobile and web.

Today Facebook rolled out support for the industry-standard glTF 2.0 file format for Facebook 3D posts. This means artists and creators can easily share even richer, higher-quality 3D content on Facebook.

With glTF 2.0 compliance comes support for textures, lighting, and realistic rendering techniques — so from rough to shiny, metallic to soft, beautifully detailed 3D art can now come alive on Facebook. 3D posts also support unlit workflows for photogrammetry and stylized art.
