RGB values for 3D model

Post by rb5543 » Mon Jan 05, 2015 10:37 am

Hi all,

I am a novice when it comes to 3D meshes so apologies for the basic question.

I have created a mesh, the issue i have is i want in RGB, it is only in color when opened in meshlab, i imagine its to do with each software package reading the texture images created for the obj.

is there a better way to export a mesh to include RGB values, a different format etc?


Thanks in advance


Richard

Hi,

At least I know that the PLY (Stanford) and FBX (Autodesk) formats are supporting RGB colors.

OBJ is a fairly universal 3D format. Some programs prefer the texture images in jpg only so just try it different ways.

Many thanks for your help.
I'll try different formats for the pics as well and i'll see if the RGB works in different software.
