    ok just to verify, you can upload multiple fbxs into a zip file and it will read them as the same animations yes?

    @MindChamber - Not yet, but it's something we're looking into. For now, all the animations and model data need to be in a single FBX file.

    @James ok np, still a great feature as is. I noticed the animation menu,and i got excited! .How exactly do I set up the data for the fbx? All my animations for example on my PBOT model are in a single timeline..is there a way in 3dmax to export the fbx with the proper frame data so sketchfab can recognize the different animations?

    @MindChamber - I don't know the precise details, but there are a few discussions happening on the forum that might be helpful:

    I have three options on the animation menu. (0 no animation, 1 take 001, 2 mixamo.com) I have to change the option from 1 to 2 every single time I view it. How can I set my model always on 2 mixamo.com?

    @eleo7979 - When animation comes out of beta (next month) you'll have options to delete, rename, and re-order animations. Until then, sorry for the inconvenience!

    @bennyd006 - We just released morph target support, which is per-vertex animation.

    @James - We can give keyframes to vertices in 3dsmax, without using morph targets. Can those type of animation support be available in sketchfab?

    @bennyd006 - Yes, you can do that in 3ds Max, but it's not supported/exported in FBX. An alternative is the Point Cache technique, which records vertex positions in a specific file attached to the FBX. However, we don't support Point Cache yet.

    Hi, can the timeline be hidden when embed on websites? if not, can the color and styles be modified?

    Hmm, rearranging the animations playing order doesn't seem to work. I just resets itself, even if you save. Or is it just me?

    @spursgdp - Business accounts can hide all the controls with the ?ui_controls=0 parameter, but at the moment it's all or nothing.

    @kubold - I'm investigating.

    Can somebody tell me?

    It is possible to make animation with 2+ textures on 1 object? I mean switching textures after some second?

    P.S Without rigging

    @axe163 - You could use the Timeframe feature (see above in this article) to switch between two models with different textures. You could also use solid animation to make two objects scale between 1 and 0 to hide/show them.

    Otherwise, we don't support animated textures yet.

    It is said here that Sketchfab doesn't support Point Cache, but obviously this guy did it :

    https://sketchfab.com/models/728998373c2d467eba571a0075472351

    A tutorial about importing mdd or other point cache formats (pc2, etc) would really be welcome.

    @hansolocambo The animation is probably baked into keyframes. I'm afraid I don't know much about it...
