Description

The PLY format is a 3D model format originally developed and released in 1994 with its primary use being to store three-dimensional data from 3D digital scanners. The format known as the Polygon File Format and also the Stanford Triangle Format can be either a binary or text based format.

The file format stores 3D geometric information such as vertices, faces, vertex normals, color and other custom data. The format is still in use with many PLY models available to download and PLY files can be loaded into most popular 3D applications such as Blender.

Description

The MP4 video format is a standard format for video encoding and storage. In order to minimize the file sizes the format employs a lossy compression method which reduces the amount of data to store the video content without any noticeable loss in quality.

Due to their small size and efficient compression methods the MP4 format is ideally suited to online video streaming. The MP4 format may use a variety of CODECs which are usually supported by most MP4 players with additional CODECs downloadable if needed.

PLY Notes

If your PLY file contains vertex colors these will be imported and mapped where possible.
