gamedevs of mastodon: anyone got good resources for learning how skeletal animation typically works in 3d game engines? i have a basic understanding of how rigs are set up and associated with vertices in a 3d modelling tool, but i'm trying to learn how that gets translated into particulars within an engine.

Mozilla has a pretty cool app (as some kind of preview? idk I just found it in the Play Store), it's called ScreenshotGo and it runs OCR on screenshots to make them full-text searchable and to allow you to copy text! Might help with those image descriptions 🙂
