Ahead of Academy Software Foundation’s Open Source Days conference highlighting the latest in open source projects used for visual effects, animation, and image creation, the Academy Software Foundation welcomed two new members: Canonical and The Khronos Group. Launched in August 2018 by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and the Linux Foundation, the Academy Software Foundation provides a neutral forum for open source software developers to share resources and collaborate on technologies for image creation, visual effects, animation and sound.

“Becoming a member of the Academy Software Foundation will enable us to further strengthen our relationship with the VFX and animation communities to ensure that Khronos standards adapt and evolve to better serve their requirements. Khronos is looking forward to sharing information with the experts in the ASWF membership and contributing to open source projects such as MaterialX, and fostering closer coordination with Khronos standards including glTF, OpenXR and Vulkan,” said Neil Trevett, President, Khronos Group.

Today the Khronos® Group announced that its glTF™ 2.0 specification for the efficient transmission and loading of 3D models has been released as the ISO/IEC 12113:2022 International Standard. Khronos has successfully completed the transposition of glTF 2.0 through the ISO/IEC JTC 1 PAS (Publicly Available Specification) Submission Process to solidify glTF’s global recognition and accelerate its adoption by industry and other standards. Khronos will continue to evolve glTF as a Khronos specification and regularly update ISO/IEC 12113 with proven, widely available glTF functionality to avoid industry fragmentation. The ISO/IEC 12113:2022 specification is available here.

In this document, the challenges by creating a “naive” glTF renderer with WebGPU is demonstrated. Then we’ll progressively refine it to make better use of the API and add more features until we’ve arrived at a renderer that makes much better, more efficient use of WebGPU’s design.
