Hi @aDev

It is basically pretty simple :slightly_smiling_face: You can use the new builtin SceneSwitcher component to export individual unity scenes as glb files that are loaded in and out by some input or another trigger (e.g. website scrolling). While the website itself is not open source all the tools are available (e.g. the websites uses a mixture of splines and css timeline tracks to move the camera and control some html elements, those are available via our modules repository)

I can try to gather some more information about it tomorrow.

Here are some links until then:

Modules with splines and css track: GitHub - needle-tools/needle-engine-modules

Sample scene to be released / polished for how to switch scenes with timeline, scrolling and no-code (see the last commit to find the correct Unity scene)

by user 751115771786035273

Yes all code is written in typescript

Thats a sample, a better version of this is in the core engine (just add a scenes switcher component to any unity gameobject, you can inspect the source by clicking the blue link at the top of the component)

So far as I understand 1- i should create my scene 2- export as html 3- add my website html like header or footer …
