The event went really well, we were between 12 and 16, depending on the moments. Most of the people stayed for four hours and we all had very interesting talks.

We had two ‘presentations’:

  • Pierre-Emmanuel Soumois from Frosty Froggs showed us a tech demo they made in Unreal Engine. The artist from their team couldn’t join but we awarded him a few likes.
  • Alexander Delagrange explained us how they use Sketchfab at DAE Howest, and showed us some of his student’s best works. He is amazed by how well and easy things work on Sketchfab 🙂

A funny and unexpected thing: 2/3 of the people present are students from the HEAJ/ESIAJ in Namur, which is my former school. One of them, France Cortequisse, is really enjoying the animation features. A few members of the Belgian Blender User Group dropped by as well.

We spent some time looking at models and they had a lot of questions on “how to do this, or this », about some bugs (which we solved).

There were also quite a few ideas about future meetups: they’d like to have presentation and maybe even short workshops/masterclasses. They also brought me a few feature requests for the player and the website, and some of them are REALLY interesting. I’ll email the team about them as soon as I can take some time to explain them in detail (I wrote them down).

I brought my Sketchfab Cardboard to the event, some people tried it on but everyone was on iOS ans there’s still a stretching bug (the team in Paris is aware of it I think). The stickers were a hit: I don’t have any left 🙂

Sounds like you guys had a great time!

Thanks so much for hosting this event for us, Quentin!
