Virtual reality has gained speed in mainstream media the last three to four years. It’s the shiny new toy everyone can completely immerse themselves in. Legitimately. If you love gaming, if you love being taken away to foreign and strange new places, this is something you want to try. So what is Virtual Reality, exactly?
Users wear a headset which completely covers their eyes, and realistic images are projected that simulate physical presence in a virtual environment. While interacting within the virtual environment, one has the ability to look and move around the artificial world and interact with virtual items.
Today, VR is most commonly used for entertainment purposes. Gaming or 3D cinema. However, the technology is beginning to find a place in the professional world.
Virtual Reality Exposure Therapy (VRET) was introduced to help patients overcome anxiety disorders and phobias. If you are scared of spiders, one can be introduced to spiders in a virtual setting.
The framework of building a virtual world is similar to building a digital world through VFX. As a production company in Atlanta, GA we revel at all opportunities to create worlds, and our head of VFX built one of the most impressive worlds to date on HBO’s, Game of Thrones. Building worlds in 3-D space is all about tracking and compositing. When you walk through environments in VR, the world adjusts. It’s what makes the experience feel reel.
If you are interested in building Virtual Worlds consider going to art school like SCAD. If you already have the know-how, CONTACT us. It’s our passion.
