2018 WW: HG: Importing OAR files from OpenSim to Web Worlds: Convoar

Importing OAR files from OpenSim to Web Worlds: ConvoarSoftware to convert Opensim OAR files to use in web-worlds.  Github link offered along with a link to a collection of converted glTF files.    Watch on YouTubeOAR file converter to web-worldsConvoar (github) converts the prims into meshes.*Outputs the region as a glTF scene (for transmission of 3D scenes).glTF is the “JPEG of 3D”glTF (Khronos)glTF (WIkipedia)Thanks to Misterblue*Scripts cannot be converted: new code is needed.Collection of converted OAR files below.Convoar is a first step in developing code that makes OpenSimulator content usable in a web browser.What this meansThe large body of existing OAR  files is available for use in web-worlds.Zadaroo  Public Domain OpenSim Resources.OARs – OutWorldzOpenSim OAR files (search)Be sure to check the license before you use an OAR fileBuilding for web-worlds can use the powerful building support of OpenSimExperienced builders in OpenSim may build for web-worlds on commission.********************************************More after the break*************************************************Metaverse events, recent and upcomingEvents on the Hypergrid: HYPEventsHypergrid DestinationsIMA Social Web and Virtual World Events, Music, and Meeting CalendarHYPERGRID EVENTSOpenSimWorld EventsEntertainment on the HypergridOpensim AAM Virtual PerformersPromotion for virtual worlds and everything in ’emSelby’s daily events and news collection:  Virtual worlds are real Comedy Videos from the virtual worldsWeb-world videos-Search this blog with the search bar, upper left.OSCC 2017 PresentationsMal Burns: Inworld ReviewHypergrid Writer’s CommunityMetaverse Jobs; Job ListingsIMA projects3D WEBSITES A2Z3D web-worlds of the browser (G+ community) Web-worlds, 3D virtual worlds running in a browser.

All textures are original size and terrain is maximum resolution. This is the best version for loading into Blender or equivilant mesh scene editor.SmallassetsMeshes are unchanged from the unoptimized version but all textures have been resized to be 256 pixels or less in any dimension and the terrain is half resolution. These two optimizations make significant improvements in the scene load time.MergedmaterialsThe meshes scene has been completely reorganized based on their material rather than their object. This makes the glTF scene completely uneditable but greatly reduces the draw count and makes even very complex regions displayable with WebGL.What you can doDownload the converted OAR in ZIP  format.Download the converted OAR in TGZ  format.View the glTF file in a simple ThreeJS viewer*  *Be sure to close that view page–multiple views tax the graphics system.Importing may require expert help from the web-world operator (for now), RelatedWeb-worlds, 3D virtual worlds running in a browser.
