Virtual Reality - WYSIWYG Editor and online hosting


#1

Hi, I wondered if anyone here has any knowledge with making a simple VR space online.

I’m keen to find an open source WYSIWYG and a free hosting platform.

I’m not looking to make anything too complex, just a space, geometric shapes and adding image layers. I don’t even need animation. Essentially I want to create a simple VR ‘room’ for each track from an EP.

I found this resource but it seems that people need the app for it to work.

Has anyone had any luck with https://aframe.io/docs/0.9.0/introduction/visual-inspector-and-dev-tools.html using the visual component editor.

Keen to hear your thoughts?

I think you could just use unreal 4. It’s free, has a bunch of shapes you can drop into a 3-d space, you can use the skybox to put background images all around your viewpoint, and I’m sure it supports vr if you check a box. Then you can probably add map triggers to play each song in the correct room (with positional audio if you desire) and package the whole thing up as a game and sell it that way. Not sure if you can run that in a browser or if your audience is going to need some minimum pc specs to run it, but bonus if you can make it run in a browser, I know unity will do that but there’s a lot more nickeling and diming on the dev side iirc.

If the conversation has gone this far, then there is one thing. This is a javascript library https://threejs.org/

In general, there are a lot of 3d libraries, just google it, here is the link https://1stwebdesigner.com/3d-javascript-libraries/
