Studio Transcendent, publisher of VR Digest, has released our virtual airshow for free on Oculus Home.
This is the full VR version, not the 360 video version that we previously released on Samsung VR, Jaunt, Hulu, Littlstar, Facebook 360 and Vrideo.
Beautifully rendered in real time with Unreal Engine, the experience guides viewers on a 6-minute journey through the history of aviation — an airshow one could never see in real life. Witness the Wright Flyer’s first leap, dodge bullets from a WWI fighter, get buzzed by the leading-edge F22 Raptor fighter jet, and be nearly engulfed by the world’s largest plane.
Please try it out and leave us a review! If you encounter any bugs please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org
Epic Games released Unreal Engine 4.14 which includes a new forward renderer geared towards VR developers. The forward rendering technique is thought to be superior for VR because it enables crisper antialiasing, and translucency is more efficient. Epic claims the forward renderer is up to 22% faster than the default deferred renderer and they are using it for their Robo Recall game.
