I have an unusual use case. I need to render complex text as a 3D texture. I’m able to adequately create that text with PIXI, but from what I’ve seen so far, Babylon isn’t quite as capable with text as PIXI (PIXI’s TextStyle editor: https://pixijs.io/pixi-text-style).
My app has relied on PIXI but now needs to support 3D so I’m deciding between Three JS and Babylon. I’ve seen a number of posts/articles that show a canvas being used as a Babylon texture. I’ve also seen an example or two of PIXI rendering a Babylon scene on a PIXI Container (Edit fiddle - JSFiddle).
I have yet to see a PIXI canvas, not just a simple canvas, used as a Babylon texture. Is this possible? If so, is there an example I might’ve missed?
Additionally, I need to skin nine different 3D objects with PIXI canvases and I’m a bit concerned with running up against browser 3GL container limitations.
Thanks in advance for your thoughts and advice.
