    Oculus Rift - Medium

    1 HR Model session stream, in site to interface for 3d modeling in VR

    This is exciting stuff, While still new (unreleased event) I am hoping this should silence a lot of the nay sayers

    I will be attending the Oculus connect conference in October and hope to get hands on with this.

    Modeling in vr is really cool. The tools are evolving quickly but they still have a ways to go. If you haven't tried making anything in VR you have no idea how incredibly precise dimensions are. When you import a model that looked fine in a render you'll most likely notice scale errors unless you modeled every single thing to actual measured scale. any small error in proportions is very easy to spot. I haven't tried Medium it seems like it's the most advanced of the bunch. Too bad it's an Occulus exclusive and I own a Vive.

    I agree what you saying the exciting stuff is that its iterating so fast.

    i do a lot of work with the devs of Janus VR and really push them to get the granular control of modern day 3d apps, the idea is simple the ui dev is hard, in sence VRE is pushing 3d back in to early days of 3d Graphics.

    How are we supposed to use 'Medium' when the Oculus Touch has not been approved for sale

    Rumors point to late november for the Touch controllers, but their credibility is suspect when it comes to shipping dates.

    Oh my gosh...

    I just realized ... if we could get LW modeling w/ 3rd Powers LWBrush (and just about every other tool) in a VR modeling environment .... I think it would be the killer app. LW Brush controlled with an Oculus Touch controller. Does anyone else get incredibly excited about this idea?

    I met the Oculus Medium team at San Diego Comic Con and they let me play around with Medium.. Was quite addictive to model in 3D space..

    I totally geeked out and didn't want to stop!

    I get excited experiencing CG in the rift not working in it.
    All that is powerful or long standing is first conceived in the imagination; supported by the hope of possibility and then made manifest in our commitment of our current physical reality.

    Most artists, who have never gone to a gym, will realize how tiring it is to do modelling in vr in an hour.
    They'll quit and go back to using vr on mindless fps games.
    How many people quit Pokemon GO after the hype? Millions every month. They got tired of walking.
