What approach do I need to take to create a Lenticular Lens effect like this web-based viewing experience? I understand how to make the effect, but I have no idea what output files I need for this viewing experience.

It should be descriptive but succinct, unique and identifying, summarizing the issue in such way that anyone searching for a similar problem may easily find it. Use the edit link above, remove anything superfluous, avoid words like "this","issue with" or "question about". Remember, your title is the first thing potential visitors will see, answers you get depend heavily on how inviting it is.

    $\begingroup$ Hello and welcome. While files, images, and external videos or links may be helpful additions they should not be the only way to obtain information about your issue. Don't make understanding your question rely on downloading a file, watching a video or visiting an external site. Use the builtin tools to upload images or gifs, along with thoroughly explaining the problem in written form so it can be indexed and searched for thus helping future visitors with similar issues. $\endgroup$ Commented Oct 3, 2023 at 5:05
  • $\begingroup$ Just look at the model from the top. It's a zig zag mesh, one side holds the image seen from the left and the other holds the image seen from the right. So two textures, one put on one half of the faces, the other on the other half. $\endgroup$ Commented Oct 3, 2023 at 9:27
  • $\begingroup$ @GordonBrinkmann The OP is already familiar with the modeling process but was seeking clarification on the required output file type for achieving this effect. As it turns out, no special procedures are necessary; simply export the model as OBJ and upload it to Sketchfab. On Sketchfab, by orbiting the view, you can observe the lenticular lens effect in action when the model is correctly set up. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @HarryMcKenzie Well, I think this was already explained in the answer back then. Apart from that, he says he knows how to make the effect, but if the Wiki article is the base of that modeling, well there it is done with lenticular lenses which is not how it's done in the example model. And the question says he wants the "viewing experience", but not actually that his model is supposed to be uploaded to Sketchfab. If so and he has the model, I guess Sketchfab has supported file types to choose from so this would already narrow down the export choices. $\endgroup$ Commented Jun 30 at 8:58

what output files I need for this viewing experience.

Export as obj or fbx, the usual. It's nothing more than a mesh after all. Your Mesh(es) (.obj, fbx, etc.) + eventual libraries (.mtl,etc.), your textures (2 in this case) and that's all. Drag and drop those files in Sketchfab's upload webpage. And it will do the rest.

I understand how to make the effect, but I have no idea what output files [...]

You understand how it's made? Then make it. I don't really see what's your issue here.
