A capture studio called Dimension decided to launch a partner programme that will let users create new experiences using volumetric video.
Volumetric 3D capture is becoming more and more popular among content creators. To follow the trend and support developers, a capture studio called Dimension decided to launch a partner programme that will let users create new experiences using volumetric video.
The new partner programme will provide an early access to the Dimension software development kits (SDKs) for Windows, iOS, and Android. Dimension is now seeking developers to become some of the first to create VR, AR, and MR with the help of volumetric videos.
Simon Windsor, Co-founder & Joint MD, Hammerhead, Dimension, states: “Virtual and augmented worlds need believable virtual humans so that we can meet our heroes and connect with their stories. With an estimated 1 billion smartphones now AR enabled, Dimension has seen strong demand for mobile support and today we are excited to introduce our Partner Programme enabling companies and creatives to develop even richer AR experiences, with believable virtual humans at their heart.”
Join the programme to receive AR and VR apps to preview sample captures for Windows desktop, Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, iOS, and Android. The kits will also feature some tools, plugins, and documentation that will help you create your own apps using Unity or UE4, plus some volumetric captures to experiment with.
Jeremy Silver, CEO, Digital Catapult said: “This is a smart step forward for Dimension and represents a new stage in their partnership with the Microsoft Mixed Realities team. The Partnership Programme is an important new way to enable companies to collaborate with the studio and to develop more game-changing content and applications. The ability to incorporate realistic digital figures within content for use across platforms will benefit developers making apps serving all kinds of industries, from entertainment to manufacturing. It will give more brands, celebrities and personalities the opportunity to engage with fans by means of this exciting new medium.”
