Here we use 2 useful tools to convert some NFT artwork from a 2D image format into a 3D color model animated as a GIF. As the NFT is supplied as a 2D image we need to first create a 3D model from this.
The images below show the original NFT file on the left and the 3MF render on the right:
Now we have the 3MF file we can now use the 3MF to Animated GIF tool to create a simple animation using the NFT 3D model.
The tool allows you to specify some simple rotation animation settings using the sliders. Resolution and FPS is limited to 480p and 30 FPS currently. For our animation we set the Rotation Y option to 1 (Clockwise) and pan the camera downwards slightly by clicking over the animated preview and dragging the view.
Once completed the tool will generate an Animated GIF ready for download and sharing!
