Getting Started

Services like Sketchfab, Turbosquid, or CGTrader allow you to upload your models, giving you the opportunity to show them to the world. But what if you wanted to present your 3D models in a way that goes beyond pre-rendering images or displaying them in a simple model viewer? With the help of the Govie Editor you can achieve just that.

The Govie Editor gives you the freedom to present your model the way you want. By adding camera transitions, post-effects, environment maps, interactive hotspots, or images, videos, and text you can create an interactive story around your creation.


Govie Editor

From within the Govie Editor you can start, stop, and pause your animation. You can even play just a range of your timeline or play it backward. Supported animation types depend on the file format. Besides regular keyframe animations, the GLTF format supports armatures and shape keys (aka morph targets).

For more information visit the integration section.

Objects or groups of objects can be hidden or shown using the visibility property. You can add that property to your objects in the 3D Software of your choice.

For each slide in a Govie, you can change the lighting and background colors. There are serval environments to choose from as well as custom lighting using sun and spotlights.

See how it’s done by checking this video demonstration.

To make your models look even nicer, we added some post effects like Depth of Field, SSAO, Bloom, Sobel / Edge Detect, and custom CSS.

Hotspots can be used as interactive annotations in a scene, to navigate through your Govie or jump to external pages

Watch this video to see hotspots in action.

Inside a Govie, you can add and style text, images and videos

Govie Plattform

Your dashboard is the starting point for creating and organizing your projects. Here you will get an overview of your projects, see all your workspaces, upload new media to the media library, and share or embed your govie.

For every Govie, you can either share a draft or publish the Govie. Both ways will give you a share link but the draft will always lead to the newest version, so people will see all the changes you make immediately. Publishing a Govie creates a fixed revision, so you can keep working while people will only see that state.

Currently, the amount of models you can upload is not restricted. The file size, however, is limited to 350 MB. We suggest making your file as small as possible to reduce loading times.

More than 30 different formats are supported by our platform. Native CAD formats like STEP, DWG, DXF, or IGES can be used as well.



Within your workspace, you can work with others on the same project at the same time! Watch the video for further details.

To create content, you don’t need to learn a new 3D Software – just work with the one you are used to. Export your model as a GLB file and load it to the Govie Editor.
