Put Yourself into a VR Game using 3D Scanning and Motion Capture

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
 In this workshop participants will learn about the process of creating a VR game with Unity and the Oculus Rift. We will utilize a mix of technologies including 3D Scanning, Cloud based rigging and animation software, a game engine, and a VR head mounted display. We will create a 3D geometric modeled avatar of participants using 3D Scanning. The avatars will then be ‘rigged’ with a skeleton to be able to be animated with motion capture data. These assets will be put into a game engine to be able to allow control and interact with the avatars. The end result will be a VR interactive game experience where a the character is a 3D model generated Avatar of YOU!

Participants can also view a demonstration of game motions applied from motion capture as demonstrated via a remote connection to NYIT's Motion Capture lab in Long Island, NY.
