A detailed workshop on the possibilities of vvvv for creating VR experiences. Within the # Immersed Narratives track of the Retune Festival 2016 in Berlin.

Workshop Contents:

While you are fresh in the morning, we’ll start with a condensed ~1h presentation that gives you a comprehensive overview of the current VR hype, including:

  • available hardware and platforms and how they compare
  • technical challenges
  • emerging standards of software and interaction design
  • software development challenges Then we’ll have a look at a few popular VR experiences to see what they do right and we’ll discuss the different concepts. After this inspirational part we will learn how fast and easy it is to setup a simple 3D VR scene with vvvv’s OpenVR pack and develop a quick prototype of a VR experience in real-time. Here you can come up with your own ideas or we find a little project everyone likes. Due to limited hardware access we will work in small teams of about 2-5 people.

During the workshop me, joreguser and dominikKolleruser will be there to assist you in case of patch emergencies.

really interesting.

Prototyping with VVVV, Final product in Unity…

Any chance to create a Final VR product with VL soon? (or later?)

08.10.2016 - 21:24
@guest: or anytime at all? or why not final product in vvvv? :P

in case of an installation you would use vvvv of course. for game developments or other types of products that need to be distributed over VR platforms there are only these options if you do not want to write everything yourself.

But VL will be able to export executables, isn’t it? So, “distribute projects over VR platforms…” will be possible?

Today, should I learn Unity…? Or waiting for VL??? (I would prefere this option!)

Would be nice to have VL in Unity, kind of like Blueprint in Unreal…

never ‘wait’ for anything. use whats best for your scenario. be open to check out new tools as they come along. don’t be afraid of learning curves. basic concepts are all the same. and yes, vl will export executables at some point, we cannot give a date for that though. please follow /vl regarding news.
