Earlier this year, Microsoft announced that they are acquiring Simplygon, a premier developer of automatic 3D data-optimization solutions. They were a leader in 3D game optimization, dedicated to helping creators and users of 3D data across industries optimize content pipelines and streamline workflows. Microsoft today announced their first solution based on Simplygon. They are launching Simplygon Cloud on Azure Marketplace that will help developers and consumers easily optimize their 3D content for mixed reality.
Simplygon supports GLTF, FBX, and OBJ file types for ingestion; rendering engines including Unity 3D and Unreal Engine. And it supports all major mixed reality platforms including Windows Mixed Reality, iOS, and Android.
How Simplygon works?
Historically, 3D asset optimization has taken days or weeks of manual effort and is one of the tasks that artists and developers dislike the most. With Simplygon, you can create 3D assets once – at full visual fidelity – and automatically optimize them to render smoothly on any platform – within minutes, saving valuable time and money.
