Getting started with Vyking Studio

Get started with the basics of Vyking Studio!

Docusaurus process

Discover everything you need to know about getting started with Vyking Studio from finding your way around the interface, to preparing your first 3D shoe assets. By getting to grips with Vyking Studio, you will be able to prepare and deploy 1000s of SKUs quickly and easily for both iOS and Android platforms.

Important considerations

  1. Vyking Studio works in meters as its unit of measurement. Thus if an imported model's length is not in the region of around 0.1 to 1 units then the model will appear too big in the viewer. Although, you do still have the ability to increase/decrease the model's scale.

  2. Please be aware that in this version of Vyking Studio the occluders are always children of the 3D shoe model.
