Hi, this is “The VR Film Set Experience” for want of a better name…
We are making a VR experience based on various films as a free little demo to download, so what do you think? have you got any ideas?
The user experience will be placed on a single spot (or two or three vantage point hot-spots for each environment) and be able to look around an environment based on a film, 30 seconds inside each environment with a skip button to go onto the next film, might even do a rough UI with multiple choice for the user to guess what film they are in to add a little game play. Transcribed music and sound effects will be adapted to roughly match the film.
Over the Christmas period to keep my UHAnimation Level 2 BA students busy I got them to build a 360 environment from a film in the UE4 engine and now I have lots of these rooms I thought I will drop this into a VR experience.
I have about 30 of these film environments and about 30 from a previous year, below are some to help give you an idea of what we are talking about.
Showcases and Complete Projects - Once the project is up and running it would be great to open it for anyone that might like to create a level, do you think it would get on the Showcases and Complete Projects?
Thank you, Yeah thats why we made it a “free little demo to download” /\ I meant to say “Showcases and Complete Projects”, and not UE4s marketplace. I have been talking about copyright issues on Polycount, It seems like this project is clear as it falls under the “Derivative work clause”.
That’s for things like parody. In your case, you’re just copying the thing from the movie, adding VR to it isn’t a significant enough change for it to quality as a new thing.
You can still put it out there for free and show it around. The Showcase/Finished Works section isn’t a thing where the best projects get chosen, anyone can post there, so if you want we can move this thread there.
Sometimes they will show cool projects they’ve seen that were done in UE4 during the official Twitch stream, but that’s it.
Thank you darthviper107 yes please, See what you think when I put the download link up
I helped out the guys over at RewindFXon an amazing Redbull VR experience, it was great fun, it taught me a lot about blending in details relevant to camera angles, depth, height, lidar scan data and so on.
@ NisshokuZK - Haha! thank you, I guess you will just have to wait and see when you play the game and see if you are right. Tomorrow we are all going to get together and get the frame rate sorted, we have 4 Oculus Rift Dev Kit 2 so we are going to put them to good use this week.
