Sony and Facebook enable direct 3D Creator sharing

Facebook introduced 3D posts earlier, but today the social network is rolling out gITF 2.0 compliance to support high-quality 3D content. The biggest beneficent are owners of Xperia smartphones with Android Oreo and 3D Creator app, who get easy sharing of their 3D art. Objects from Oculus Medium can also be posted with no hassle.

Compliance with gITF 2.0 brings support for textures, lighting, and realistic rendering techniques. The 3D portraits and objects are available both in the desktop version and the regular app, but Facebook Lite users will miss on the experience.

Web developers can enable 3D content on their website with a new Open Graph tag, while artists using authorized software can drag/drop 3D files on Facebook for a 3D post.

Phones that currently support this type of content are the Xperia XZ1 and Xperia XZ1 Compact, along with the year-old XZ Premium, provided you received the update to Android Oreo.
