We are excited to announce Giraffe version 2.8!
Tonnes of new Giraffe features have been released this month. Here is a quick snapshot of what we've been working on & is now available on the platform for you to use.
Use Places to captivate your audience and communicate clearly with varied multimedia for optimal civic engagement. Here are some recent enhancements:
👉 Embed video in Marker Pop-ups! When adding a pop-up to a marker, you can now embed even more rich content with the YouTube plugin. Add drone footage, realistic renderings, and viewpoints - and place them on a specific point.
👉 Embed GLTF & Obj files! You can now add realistic renderings and have their shadow cast right into your Places environment. Mix massings & detailed designs for a complete timeline view.
