Load GLB/GLTF without textures

Hi
I have a question:
Is there a possibility to load a glb file via: SceneLoader.ImportMeshAsync (or a different function) without loading the textures? But with the materials?
My plan is to load textures differently but my glb’s have embedded textures which I do not use.

I have tried unloading the textures like this after the load:

const bundle = await SceneLoader.ImportMeshAsync(...);

bundle.meshes.forEach((mesh) => {
    const textures = mesh.material?.getActiveTextures();

    if (textures) {
        textures.forEach((texture) => {
            texture.dispose();
        });
    }
});

But I do not want to load them at all.
Is there a way to do this?
Thx.

The easiest way is to remove all textures from a file beforehand with some tool like Blender (or with some relevant CLIs, or with just small Babylon script like you mentioned and then save the clean file).
I think it is not possible to not to load textures from GLB, but it should be possible for GLTF with some additions to the GLTF Loader. Here is a couple of threads which may put some light on it

We don’t have this option.

What you can do is not load the materials at all and create them afterwards (see the skipMaterials property of GLTFFileLoader).
