Hey Mate I got it working you need to import in a scene so you can see the model because it won’t load the texture of the ABC model.
Because of no texture, you cannot see the ABC model.
Couldn’t upload the MP4 file, lol

why still no other output format like EXR 32 bit???

Cheers team…thanks again.

Try tuning on Realtime quality

Can i get a link to the offline asset library? thanks

Hi Ortzak, the whole asset library should be about 50 Gb, and our design is to pursue simplicity and convenience, so we currently may not provide a downloadable offline assets library. But later we will provide a quick-download feature.
