Some great news… We have been working on our Unity plugin and are super excited to announce some major improvements. This opens the floodgates for VX1 content creation. So if you are an existing Unity developer or even new to Unity, you can now create awesome content for our volumetric display within a few minutes…
Just some of the improvements to Voxon’s Unity plugin are listed here:
24,000 times faster to load meshes!
- Three example scenes provided to get you started
Run the VX1 simulator directly from within the Unity editor
Compile settings automatically loaded
Warnings now in place for missing key bindings
Improved exception handling
Capture volume now scales smoothly
Texture cleanup for destroyed meshes
The new Unity plugin can be downloaded here
We have created a quick YouTube video on how to use our Unity plugin… Listen to the dulcet tones of our CTO Gavin Smith’s voice whilst discovering just how quick and easy it is to create amazing games and animations for the VX1 using Unity.
We created the VX1 after being inspired by Star Wars. Now we would love to see what you can create! There are so many cool games that could be amazing in a 3D format. We are already working on a few little refreshes of some old retro arcade games and cannot wait to see what they look like with a futuristic (some would call it holographic) spin. We have always wanted an audio visualisation option for the VX1 when playing music as well, so this we will definitely look at creating this using Unity.
We will be continually updating and improving our plugin so if you have something you feel like you need us to build or improve, just let us know!
