3D assets are digital files which contain information relevant to their display and interactive ability in various computer applications. Standard 3D assets include models, materials, and lights. A 3D model, or mesh, is an object that can be animated, staged, and rendered, and can include anything from figures to objects. Materials are added to the surfaces of an object to change its visual appearance. Lights are used in 3D scenes to assist rendering and the final appearance of a 3D scene. From VFX, movies, and gaming, to architecture, automotive design, product design, fashion, and more, 3D assets are invaluable tools.
