How can I convert a video for instance from .avi to .mp4 on PC?

Install and run the program. Drag your source video into the main window.

  1. Use the Preset >Fast 1080p30.
  2. Go to the >Video tab and at >Framerate (FPS) choose >Same as source.
  3. At the bottom select >Browse and choose a file name and location.
  4. Hit >Start Encode.

I get glitches in Sketchfab after exporting from Maya. How can I fix this?

Flickering or overlapping faces can be caused by N-Gons (polygons with more than 4 edges). You can avoid this when you cut the N-Gons into smaller polygons in Maya. Check also this Maya forum entry.
