WebVR is a cutting edge technology that allows any architectural visualization artist to create cross-platform virtual reality experiences. You can create a single project and share with potential costumers, coworkers, and even embed that on a web page.
In this workshop, I will show you how to use WebVR with an open-source framework to transform your architectural projects into VR experiences. You can view your VR using a regular web browser like Google Chrome, or your smartphone with a VR headset. They are all compatible with WebVR.
What you will learn:
How to use a WebVR framework
Use Python to create a test environment
Create a basic scene with a-frame
Work with a-frame elements like a Sky background and primitives
Use the scene inspector to make changes to a project
Add interactive buttons and textures to VR
Render projects to use in VR
Create a basic VR template
Use animation and links inside VR
Navigate between scenes in VR
The workshop has a total of eight lessons with detailed explanations in how to use a-frame with plain text files saved as html code.
No coding experience required
View your projects on a mobile browser in VR-mode
Even if you don't have an expansive VR headset, it is possible to experience a full virtual reality environment by using a mobile phone. Upload the content to a webserver and go into VR mode.
Add animations and interactivity
Besides vieweing a scene in VR mode, we can also use lots of other features from the a-frame framework. You will learn how to interact with multiple scenes using links, and also how to create animations to display messages and instructions.
