Plattar V2 Renderer
This document outlines the necessary guides and steps required to migrate from Plattar’s legacy V1 Renderer onto the new V2 Renderer.
V2 Renderer comes packed with performance improvements and new SDK’s, API’s, Scripting Frameworks and features that are backwards incompatible with the legacy system.
In order to take advantage of these new features, a migration of existing projects is required.
The legacy system will continue to be maintained until 31 August 2022 whereupon it will be deprecated. As of launch, no new features will be developed on the legacy system.
- 3D Viewers and Embeds
- Legacy Scripts
- Events Frameworks
List of new features
- Plattar Executable Scripting
- Viewer & Embed SDK
plattar-web open-source SDK allows easy embedding of Plattar viewers and AR functionalities onto existing websites.
- Performance Improvements
The new Renderer framework utilizes a modular build architecture which only loads the things that it needs to run. This provides further stability, robustness and loading speed improvements.
- Event Framework
- Apple Quicklook
The Renderer is fully interoperable with Apple’s USDZ and Reality file formats. The first feature we are launching is the ability to create face-tracking experiences running natively using Apple’s Quicklook.
- API Tools
The backend API has been modernised to become interoperable using the plattar-api SDK. This allows creating AR experiences using backend systems outside of Plattar.
