Update on Animating Web-Based Models

I wanted to post a quick correction to my announcement on 3D Publishing to the web.  I started writing that post weeks before it was released because we were working on the examples for our website.  During that time, Sketchfab shared with us a solution for animating web-based models.  Unlike our 4DIM and PDF animations which are frame-based, the Sketchfab animations must have a time duration assigned to each VRML frame.  The first example showing the railyard has 8 frames which flip on 5 second intervals.   We’ve been told that Sketchfab will soon add the ability to specify frames vs. times which will make things even better.
