Skill Level Intermediate
- [Instructor] One of the coolest things these days in virtual reality applications is the ability to create stuff on the fly, in real time and in real scale, and in virtual reality. So, what I want to take a look at today is some of the coolest new virtual reality apps for creating content live in VR. So, I thought we'd take a look kind of at this top virtual reality design applications. Now, with that said, there is so many things going on now within virtual reality with these types of applications, so this is going to change, because there's going to be more coming out and they're getting better all the time, and more powerful, as we'll see here, as well.
So, some of the top virtual reality design apps that are available right now for things like the Oculus Rift, the HTC Vive, and other platforms there as well. So, "Tiltbrush" by Google, which is a 3D paint and modeling application that allows you to paint and experience the idea of immersing yourself in paint strokes, essentially all around you. And you can actually build geometry that you can export and bring into other applications outside of VR to take it even further.
So, "Medium" by Oculus, and this as of right now is specific to the Oculus Rift, and this is an excellent way of experiencing the ability to create and customize applications, or for that matter, art in the Rift environment. This idea of actually sculpting and modeling something in virtual reality to scale as well, something very cool. That also allows you to bring the geometry out and export that as well and bring it into other applications, too.
So, "Quill", again by Oculus. This is a very cool area here, this idea of being able to paint, model, and animate in virtual reality. So, this idea of actually not just painting and sculpting, but actually bringing things to life where you can add some effects, like different types of animation or actually having things that interact with you. So, you're kind of painting and creating a scene that comes to life as well.
Another really cool one is "Gravity Sketch", and this is the ability to model and design in virtual reality, and actually be able to experience your design in a very cool and compelling way. So, you're kind of immersing yourself into that design as you build, as well. So, something worth checking out, definitely is "Gravity Sketch". A very cool way to design and sculpt in real time to real world scale, as well.
And then finally, we have the last two here. I have "MakeVR", is actually a really cool thing for designing and modeling. And it's worth pointing out that they actually do have two flavors of this. So this is the idea of taking many different pieces and shapes and being able to model and kind of sculpt them in virtual reality to create a design. But, it's worth noting that they actually have this VR Pro, they have this MakeVR Pro version of the software available as well, that allows you to create live and virtual reality.
This one here, as of right now, is exclusive to the HTC Vive. So, it does refer to itself as a VR CAD modeler as well. So, something worth checking out if you're into definitely VR modeling and scultping here, is MakeVR Pro. And something else that's very cool, is the guys over at TenkLabs have come up with something very cool for virtual reality sculpting, and they have their Kodon VR. And here's just a simple little example of it here over on Steam, and they actually have something that works much like other applications that you may be used to on a desktop.
So, they have a lot of tools that are quite familiar, but really work well in the VR space, and this is available for a couple of different platforms. It is available for the Vive, and it is available for the Rift, as well. So, definitely check out, if you're into the whole digital sculpting work flow, this Kodon application, is another really exciting one that is in the works and they're constantly working on, and building and improving as well.
So. there's an overview of the top VR design applications. This ability to create real time in real world scale, and be able to be immersed within your art work in virtual reality.
Q: Why can't I earn a Certificate of Completion for this course?
A: We publish a new tutorial or tutorials for this course on a regular basis. We are unable to offer a Certificate of Completion because it is an ever-evolving course that is not designed to be completed. Check back often for new movies.
