All black in Google Chrome


(3dmotion) #1

Good evening.
I am having trouble using the Sketchfab by Google Chrome.
This only occurs a few times and with some models.
The screen is completely black and I can not see 3D models.
The problem does not occur in Firefox.

Thanks for the report! We can't reproduce the bug currently though, although I have the same chrome version.
Could you provide us a screenshot from

Does the bug occurs consistently for a given model url ? (ideally, in that case can you provide us with a model url that works and one that never work)
Or is it somewhat random ?

It seems to be random. It also occurs in Firefox, during the 3D settings screen, but when you close and re-open the browser, back to work correctly.


It sounds like the browser runs out of memory and can't render the texture. Do you have an example model?

Hi, same problem in opera.
I see when you quit background in scene ,the model is ok, but if you activate use enviroment for background ,in lights,it broken,became all black.

Sorry my english.

It should work if you use an image or color background instead of environment.
