  • Upload folders instead of files (More info).
  • Nira checks your files before upload to accelerate future uploads and ensure file integrity (More Info). This phase is indicated by the "Checking files" status. To ensure this process goes smoothly, upload from your fastest storage device, such as an NVMe or SSD. Try to avoid uploading from an HDD or network drive.
  • Do not move or change any of your files during the upload, or it will fail.
  • For important application specific export and upload suggestions, see the How do I export from... section of our documentation. Here are some direct links for some common applications:
  • Nira supports many file types, though we suggest using .obj files for mesh/geometry uploads. If feasible, consider exporting multiple smaller .obj files (each ideally under 1 GB) instead of a single large .obj file.  Instructions for this process can be found in the specific application links provided above.
  • 16K or 32K texture file dimensions are suggested rather than 4K or 8K or smaller (More Info).  Note, you can upload an unlimited amount of textures and/or photos.
  • We currently recommend keeping your triangle count to 200 million or less per asset for the best performance and load time. You can generally achieve the best visual quality by using more texture resolution than with a higher triangle count. For example, a 50 million triangle asset with 4 x 32K textures will look dramatically better than a 200 million triangle asset with 4 x 8K textures.
  • Does Nira support point clouds? Yes!
  • If you're uploading a volumetric video asset, see How do I upload a volumetric video asset?
  • You can upload an unlimited amount of textures and photos – neither will negatively impact viewing performance or load times. Texture resolutions up to 32K are supported.
