In order to use a Tilt Brush 3D model in STYLY STUDIO, you need to export it in .glb format and then upload the 3D model in .glb format to STYLY STUDIO.
This section explains how to do this.
Creating a 3D Model
Launch Tilt Brush and create a 3D model.
In this example, we created a model of the letter “S” surrounded by a square using paint.
We used the Marker option as the painting tool.
Feel free to create whatever 3D model you want.
To export the 3D model, first set the mode in Tilt Brush to Advanced Mode. By default, this option is set to Beginner Mode.
Select Advanced Mode in the left side menu.
After switching to Advanced Mode, select More Options… from the left side menu.
This will open the More Options menu. Select Labs, this is the flask icon in the center.
Selecting Labs will open another menu. In this menu, select Export.
Exporting will start automatically.
When “Untitled_0 exported!” is displayed, the export process is completed.
Uploading to STYLY STUDIO
Let’s upload the model to STYLY STUDIO. Do this by opening 3D Model > My Models & Upload in STYLY STUDIO.
Click on Select… and find the .glb file that you exported from Tilt Brush. The export file is saved in the local folder PC > Documents > Tilt Brush > Exports.
Inside the Untitled_0 folder you will find four different formats saved in separate folders. Open the glb folder.
Select Untitled_0.glb and then Open.
The Untitled_0.glb file will be uploaded to STYLY STUDIO. From here, you can select the file from My Models and place it in your scene.
Place the 3D model in the scene.
This is how to export a 3D model from Tilt Brush and upload it to STYLY STUDIO.
About Brushes that Work in STYLY
Some Tilt Brush brushes are compatible with STYLY, while others are not. This may cause compatibility errors that can prevent your 3D models created with Tilt Brush from being displayed correctly. Please check the compatibility chart below before creating models to make sure that you are using STYLY compatible brushes.
Brush Name: Brush types available in Tilt Brush.
○: Supported (Colors and Shapes can be reproduced)
△: Partially Supported (Can reproduce Colors and Shapes, but cannot reproduce Blooms)
×: Not supported (Colors and Shapes cannot be reproduced)
|Brush Name||Steam (VR HMD)||Mobile iOS
*The Nreal Version is currently undergoing a revision. An update will be available in the store soon. (As of March 2021)
Brushes marked with △ in the above Compatibility Table are not Bloom compatible. Bloom is an appearance feature that creates a shine or glow on your 3D models, as shown in this picture.
STYLY STUDIO will support the Bloom feature in a future update soon.
