FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I work on my scene offline?

PixCap currently requires an internet connection to run, though we will be adding support for offline mode in the future.

Can PixCap scenes be loaded if I’m not connected to the internet?

Not out the box, though we will be adding offline capabilities and storage in the near future. It is also possible to export the scenes from PixCap as a FBX/GLTF/GLB file for use in 3D packages like Blender, Maya, Unity and Unreal engine.

Do I need to be an animator to use PixCap? What skills do I need?

Only basic knowledge of 3D is required for users to start using PixCap, regardless of animation background.

Do I need to import 3D models to animate?

Yes, 3D models can be imported directly into PixCap. We will be adding out-the-box 3D models and templates in the near future.

Does my 3D character need to be rigged before importing into PixCap?

Yes, rigged 3D characters would need to be imported into PixCap. We aim to allow users to upload non-rigged 3D character meshes and use auto-rigging and weight-painting in the future.

I have a 3D scene in Blender or Maya. Can I use it in PixCap?

PixCap supports FBX and GLTF imports. Simply export the 3D scene as an FBX or GLTF (GLB recommended) and import it into PixCap.

Roadmap
