Using the New glTF Extensions: Volume, Index of Refraction, and Specular

glTF LogoThe Khronos® 3D Formats Working Group recently announced the ratification of three new Physically Based Rendering (PBR) extensions for the glTF™ 3D asset format: KHR_materials_volume, KHR_materials_ior, and KHR_materials_specular. The three new extensions build on and extend the existing glTF 2.0 PBR capabilities by adding volume-based absorption, refraction, and complex specular reflections. Some or all of these new extensions are already supported by rendering engines such as Babylon.js, Google’s Filament, and three.js, as well as applications including Adobe’s Substance 3D Stager, Dassault Systèmes 3DEXPERIENCE Platform, DGG RapidCompact and UX3D’s Gestaltor. This blog will explore how these extensions are implemented and which variables will be available for artists to control.
