Objects suited for Verge and AR could be something like this (different qualities, depending on budget):
Substance Painter for instance can export gltf and usdz files. Also there are some web-services. And some apple tools on OsX.
I just saw that you officially don’t support advanced settings in Color Correction node which I used to change the gamma. Then I of cause can’t blame you for ignoring it. Then at least a “linear” checkbox in texture properties become even more reasonable solution.
To give you a perspective, this is a typical medium sized scene (still stripped of all too unholy big meshes like kitchen appliances, small goodies or complicated plants (they will be taken care of and simplified in later process)) right after the export to verge. Still full of problems and about 1.7 million polys with hundreds 3dsmax Physical materials raw converted from VRay materials. This puppy gives me 290 2K baked Verge maps adding up to another 220 textures it’s straight funnel through untouched. It will need a lot of material tweaking and light baking to make it pretty. A lot of work by itself.
The export takes on my 16 cores Threadripper about 5 minutes using only ONE of the 16/32 cores. You can perhaps imagine that iterating through the whole scene with this ridiculous times is impossible.
Bin size 58.4 MB / packed 16 MB, gltf 1475 KB to 65 KB (kudos for this your packing is great)
Like you see it now it’s totaling 42 MB
The goal is to get it to look as near as possible to this rendered look:
So you need to test it bit by bit, but Verge can’t export sub-scenes right now only the whole thing.
You have to split it up in multiple max files, test/export them on their own and rejoin it later. On top of changing assets, tight deadlines and customers changing the thing an a daily basis. At some point you have to iterate on the whole. Everytime waiting for 290 textures to bake in glorious 2k despite you would only need them in 256-512 at least for testing. Then post process (rescale, some color correction) all exported textures to get the whole thing down to a manageable download size and after opening also fits into an ordinary office GPU or iPad memory.
Thanks a lot. It a whole node baking in this case is too much or 3dsmax defies a clear/right solution (3dsmax file gamma handling isn’t always sane) at least a Verge texture parameter like “linearize map” or “use linear” telling Verge to use that particular texture different would help at lot too. But yes a right whole material node tree evaluation prior to baking would be the right solution.
A test scene here:
the roughness map is read with default gamma (in file dialog automatic) which is corrected with a Color Correction. The resulting combined ao-metallic-rouch map from Verge after export looks like the input not like the color correction. And yes 3ds max is ignoring it in the display too.
This is the look it should have after I manually Gamma corrected the Verge exported combined texture with a 2,2 gamma, much rougher everything:

Some developments here? Almost all my customers asking for AR want it in iOs. There are whole sales persons armies equipped with iPads eager to show their products in realtime / AR and we have to create separate usdz files with some limitations (no interactivity) and not in Verge.
I second this, splitting 3dsmax files is a nightmare in maintaining and updating data throughout all of them. Verge3D exporting only selected or better by Layer or Groups (using the layer/Group name in the process) is much better.

Your https://cdn.soft8soft.com/videos/yellow_fish.mp4 own demo video don’t trigger a CORS error from local Verge play.
It don’t run from local, Verge3d folder and video on same domain works.
Performance is great for webm, a lot worse for mp4 (2-5 fps here)

Is there any work on this? I need to change the camera fov (viewing angle NOT position) by mouse-wheel for my project. Setting the camera (fov / zoom) is a must. Atleast give me the posibilitynto use camera fov animation from 3dsmax so I could set animation frame in order to “zoom”.2020-11-16 at 12:08 pm in reply to: Flipped normals and wrong materials Assignments in Verge3D #35363
Rescaling scene to meters, resetting trsnsformations/scale, renaming aery object to unique names and attaching non working objects to working objects fixed the problems for now. This particular 3ds max scene was cursed, I don’t want to bother you anymore with this shit.2020-11-16 at 11:36 am in reply to: Flipped normals and wrong materials Assignments in Verge3D #35360
Even reducing the file down to only 2 objects and 2 materials with totally different materials than my metals exports a file with metals on. Thinking of some old cache error. Tried 3 browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Vivaldi), with scene never loaded before, same result.
Verge somehow caches materials from history on export?
Other scenes, mine and Verge demos export fine.

The black one on the outer profile. Multimaterial Called “N_ALU”, 3rd submaterial “Aussen”.
Color it red or anything else.
materials on the profiles are exchanged randomly2020-11-12 at 1:55 pm in reply to: Flipped normals and wrong materials Assignments in Verge3D #35287
now only a few objects and a camera
wrong (multi)material allocation on the outer shells (look at the red material in 3dsmax and where it lands in Verge)
Look at the crisp reflection on the sides (wrong material landing on them), what the heck is the grey sphere in the reflections?
I’ve fixed the normals problem, 3dsmax made some strange things with extrusions.2020-11-12 at 9:59 am in reply to: Flipped normals and wrong materials Assignments in Verge3D #35265
first a screenshot from Verge after Sneak peak in browser(Chrome):
screenshot M=wrong (multi)material, N = flipped normals
here the 3dsmax 2021 scene with enough assets to see the problems:
the scene is not finally optimized, I’ve encountered the mentioned problems and halted work on this. On the upper profile I’ve collapsed the aluminium and plastic profile together from their extruded spline state, trying to solve the problems, the flipped normals and wrong (multi)materials occured on other places thereafter.
