3D VR Experiments 2016

First off apologies to regular visitors to Enhanced Dimensions for the lack of posts recently. The effort required to complete Crime Squad left me with a massive backlog of other areas requiring attention so updating the blog has taken a bit of a backseat.

I have been experimenting with VR, primarily in After Effects, and tearing my hair out trying to get stereoscopic VR output – I have come up with one technique which I’ll share once I’ve gone beyond the current proof of concept stage – of course it would be much easier if the Mettle Skybox VR plugin suite would support stereoscopic outout, but having chatted with Chris over at Mettle it doesn’t sound like this is currently likely to happen.

I find it quite strange experiencing VR in 2D – for me it feel like I’m standing inside a sphere with a video projected onto it (I guess that’s because you are) whereas when you add the stereoscopic dimension you suddenly feel like you are in the environment, everything becomes more “real”. I can’t get my head around why anyone would create 2D VR. Anyone else got any thoughts?

It’s likely that the blog will continue to be updated fairly irregularly for some time as I have several large projects that will be taking up my time for the next year or so. But never fear…I’ll be back!
