I wanted to test solutions to allow clients to visualize high quality scenes even if they don’t have the hardware.
Here’s a screen of max quality Koola’s lightroom demo being played in my browser. It is streamed via X.IO. Took 3 mins to upload the app to their website and takes 10 seconds to load the scene in my browser. You can send a simple link to your client for them to access the scene. Of course, it cost (a little bit) of money but it’s far more accessible than buying a 2k $ pc. Also, should work on any device, like a tablet or even a phone!
Couple restrictions for now because X.IO is still in beta. Max res is 1080p, max fps 30 in browser.
I made a matinee when the level is loaded then after that the player has complete control of the character and can explore the scene.
Not sure if the framerate was reaching 30 fps, I’ll have to benchmark it. They stream from high end pc but only with a GPU equivalent of a gtx 680. Hopefully they’ll improve that in the future. That would also be interesting for VR because I don’t see many clients having strong enough pc’s for that. Of course the end result is dependent on the internet connection quality!
Here’s the captured footage with shadowplay straight form browser. Sorry if my movement are choppy, the freelook and movement speed was set to very high sensitivity lol.
I think amazon appstream does the same, maybe better, maybe not, I’ll have to test but X.io is dead simple to set up and use!
