If you hadn’t heard about FBX Review, here’s the 5 key points you should know:
1. It lets you open and review 3D models, and play back baked animations.
2. It lets you toggle shading modes, scene lights, and cameras.
3. It can open a whole bunch of file formats: .fbx, .zip, .3ds, .obj, .dxf, .dae, .bvh, .htr, .trc, .asf, .amc, .c3d, .aoa, .mcd.
4. It’s a standalone piece of software, so you don’t need a license of a 3D tool.
5. It’s free.
So, where can you get FBX Review? A whole bunch of places!
Besides supporting iOs and Mac OS X, this release of FBX Review really makes the asset review process so much easier since it now supports ZIP files. What do we mean by this? Well, if you have a zip file that contains geometry as well as assigned texture files, FBX Review can load that asset correctly, so you aren’t stuck looking at a simple grey model.
You can open assets from other locations on your iOS device, just like many other apps. If you use Dropbox to store your assets, you can load assets from the dropbox directory on your phone. You can also load them from email, or other storage locations.
