It seems the world of Virtual Reality content design tools has taken another step forward at last. Now that virtual reality headsets like the Oculus Rift are relatively affordable, we’re now seeing a race among developers to make elegant 3D content design programs for these tools. While at the moment these tools are primarily focused on real-time animation, it’s only a matter of time before they expand onto other disciplines such as product design CAD.
Cinematography Database has recently performed a test run on Oculus Rift’s own 3D content and production tool Oculus Medium. It gives a good overview of just what these VR modelling tools can already do. See for yourself.
