Hi everyone. Thought I’d go about this one a bit differently than with the previous one and actually ask for advice before the possible problems arise.
We are launching this online trade fair on October 15th: https://taikalyhty.shapespark.com/thatk2020/#autoplay
The plan is to focus on the speed of the model; render everything as low as possible and keep the model size manageable even for the low-end hardware and mobile. So far I think it’s working smoothly. Every booth will have a trigger that will direct the visitor to a smaller model with only that single booth - but this time with better render quality and a full content blast. This way the exhibitors can market their own “room” through their own channels and bring visitors straight to their content.
The problem is I’d still like this main scene to have as much content and awesome stuff as possible. So the questions are:
- Extensions. Do they make the model heavier in any way? Should I just keep these in the smaller models and leave them out of this main one? There is going to be around 200 of them.
- Videos. If I were to put a video texture control extension on every one of these, so that they would only start playing 1 at a time, what kind of effect would this have? Does the visitor still have to load all of the 40 videos upon entry or how does it work?
Thanks in advance for any feedback.
