What are VR films?
Virtual reality films are films meant to be watched in a virtual reality HMD (head mounted display). The films are created using stereoscopic 360-video technology, which creates a video that can be viewed in 360 degrees within an HMD while giving the same depth perception found in a 3D film. VR films are far more immersive and entertaining then standard films, and are generally much shorter due to a higher level of emotional and sensory intensity. If you haven't tried a VR film yet, we recommend doing so today for one of the most entertaining experiences you will ever have!
how are vr films created?
Stereoscopic 360-video can be created using either computer graphics programs or spherical stereoscopic camera rigs. In the case of computer generated graphics, artists use standard programs like Maya and Blender, combined with specialty plug-ins and processes in order to create high-quality stereoscopic panoramic frames for the animation. Once the content has been created, it's rendered using the HoneyVR Render Farm, then post-processed and encoded with our custom VR production workflow. Finally, scoring and sound effects are created with spatial audio techniques to complete the VR film production.
