Latest update about the Backoffice app

Based on ADR-0031, the VR Designer app will load alembic files. Each alembic file contains a combination of avatar, garment and animation, thus making the files comparatively large in size. Also using alembic files aligns with the preferred export method of fashion designers because they use Browzwear’s VStitcher 3D Apparel Design Software that supports them. Alembic files also have superior texture quality as opposed to other formats. Also, in importing said alembic files in Unity in order for the VR Designer to access them, there is a series of manual actions needed to be performed from the development side that currently cannot be automated.

All of the above requirements made the case for using an administrative tool like the VR Designer Backoffice app very weak, thus we decided not to proceed with implementation. We retain the Usage Scenarios for future reference.
