Frequently asked questions

  • What do I need to create content for this platform?
    You can use the 3d modeling program of your choice (Maya, Blender, 3dsmax, etc.) to create your content for scene objects/avatars/vehicles etc.. animation and rigging is supported. Avatar skeleton, templates and examples are available in the wiki area. All content will need to be in FBX format using Y-UP mode.. avatars must use our skeleton and vehicle meshes just need to be animated in-place with the wheels moving in a forward motion for about 100-500 frames.
  • What are the system requirements to run this program?
    About 300mb of diskspace once installed + space for cached objects. We recommend an i5/ryzen5+, 16gb of ram, 2gb+ GPU for desktop only and 8gb GPU for using with VR.
  • Does SapphireXR have restrictions on content types allowed?
    Very few restrictions. Since our rule is that all users must be at least 18 years of age, content restrictions will be minimal but we must still comply with applicable laws in regard to copyrighted content (no selling of) and adult content must be of legal nature.
  • Is VR supported yet?
    Yes. Any headset that is supported by SteamVR will work and has a mapping for Sapphire.
  • Does this engine support custom avatar emotes/animations that will retarget to any avatar?
    Yep, there is a separate content editor panel for uploading/previewing avatar animations. You can animate our skeleton manually or use generators such as Mixamo. Please make sure to include the default skin or at least just have a skin in general for them to work properly--No skin, emote will not work.
