Blender glTF 2.0 Exporter

Version

1.0

Introduction

This is the offical Khronos Blender glTF 2.0 exporter. This repository mainly contains Python scripts to export the internal Blender data structure to glTF 2.0. Node groups are also provided, to simulate glTF Physically-Based Rendering (PBR) materials using the Cycles renderer. Finally, several Blender scenes are provided demonstrating each feature individually.

Installation

The Khronos glTF 2.0 exporter is not available in the Add-ons tab by default, and must be installed manually by copying the scripts/addons/io_scene_gltf2 folder into the scripts/addons/ directory of the Blender installation, then enabling it under the Add-ons tab. Read detailed installation instructions here.

Using the exporter

Refer to user documentation. For best results with PBR materials, use the node groups provided with the exporter.

Features

This exporter supports meshes, materials, animation (keyframes, skinning, and shape keys), and more. For a complete list of features available in glTF 2.0, see the official specification and list of extensions. This exporter allows the following extensions:
