SUPPORT System Requirements

POSEFY is based on WebGL (Web-based Graphics Library), a software library that extends the capability of the JavaScript programming language allowing it to generate interactive 3D graphics in any compatible web browser without the need for plug-ins.

Because WebGL runs on a computer display card's GPU (Graphics Processing Unit), it needs to support something called shader rendering.

In order to experience POSEFY fully, we recommend the following:

  • A Mac or PC (preferably manufactured after 2007)
  • An OpenGL 2.0 compatible display card such as Nvidia GeForce 8800, ATI Radeon 9250 or better.
  • A WebGL enabled browser. For a full list of WebGL compatible web browsers please see below.

Supported Web Browsers

Desktop Browsers

  • Mozilla Firefox - WebGL has been enabled on all platforms that have a capable graphics card with updated drivers since version 4.0.
  • Google Chrome - WebGL has been enabled on all platforms that have a capable graphics card with updated drivers since version 9.
  • Safari - Safari 5.1 and newer versions installed on Mac OS X Lion and Mac OS X Snow Leopard implemented support for WebGL, however it is disabled by default (please click here to learn how to enable WebGL on later versions of Safari).
  • Opera - WebGL has been implemented in Opera 12 or above.
  • Microsoft Internet Explorer - Microsoft has not announced any plans to support WebGL (please click here to download a plug-in that will allow you to render WebGL on Internet Explorer 6.0 and newer versions).

Mobile Browsers

  • Nokia N900 - WebGL is available in the PR1.2 firmware update.
  • BlackBerry PlayBook - WebGL is available via WebWorks in PlayBook OS 2.0
  • Firefox for mobile - WebGL is available for Android devices in unstable builds since early 2011.
  • The Sony Ericsson Xperia range of Android smartphones have had WebGL capabilities following a firmware upgrade.
  • Opera Mobile 12 - WebGL is available for Android devices.

Enabling WebGL in Firefox

Please ensure that you have downloaded the latest version of Mozilla Firefox. If your system is fully compatible, WebGL rendering should be enabled by default. Otherwise, you may take the following steps:

  • Type about:config in Firefox's address bar.
  • To enable WebGL, set webgl.force-enabled to true.
  • To enable Layers Acceleration, set layers.acceleration.force-enabled to true.
  • To enable Direct2D in Windows Vista/7, set gfx.direct2d.force-enabled to true.
  • Don't forget to relaunch Firefox for the changes to take effect.
  • Visit http://doesmybrowsersupportwebgl.com to confirm that your browser settings now support WebGL.

Enabling WebGL in Google Chrome

Please ensure that you have downloaded the latest version of Google Chrome. If your system is fully compatible, WebGL rendering should be enabled by default. Otherwise, you may take the following steps:

  • Type about:flags in the Google Chrome address bar.
  • Set "Override software rendering list" to enable.
  • Set "WebGL" to enable.
  • Scroll down and select "relaunch Google Chrome" for the changes to take effect.
  • Visit http://doesmybrowsersupportwebgl.com to confirm that your browser settings now support WebGL.

Enabling WebGL in Safari

Here's a quick guide on how to enable WebGL:

  • Open the Safari menu and select "Preferences".
  • Click the "Advanced" tab in the "Preferences" window.
  • At the bottom of the window, check the "Show Develop" menu in menu bar checkbox.
  • Open the "Develop" menu in the menu bar and select "Enable WebGL".
