Oculus Rift VR Demo Vr02 – 3D Heaven01

As promised another Oculus Rift VR demo has been released. This time featuring a nude scan. Testing out new background visuals and shader effects. This is purely a tech demo, showcasing what’s possible with Unity and 3D scanning technology. Nothing polished, just fun.

This demo features nude ‘tasteful’ adult content.

3D Heaven-01

3D-Heaven01_04 3D-Heaven01_06

This is a very basic demo, just an expression of me getting to grips with Unity and trying to create something easy to use, to share realistic human scans with. If it’s popular I will surely release more Nude scans to be viewed but they may come at a price, as this type of content takes a fair amount of work to release.

In this example it’s a relaxation environment. A place to escape, with relaxing sounds and visuals to allow us to explore the human form in peace (with a few hidden easter eggs!)

Not a professionally built demo by any standards but fun, so there will be bugs and it might run slowly on some machines but it runs over 70fps here. Please let me know about any bugs or speed problems you might find.

This demo has been designed purely for the Rift. To really experience the sense of scale and character presence, it should be viewed in VR (true 3D)

You WILL need a powerful machine to run this demo, it has NOT been optimized at all. Please leave feedback about what you think can be improved and I will try and offer some adjusted revisions ASAP.

Can any MAC users out there let me know if this MAC version works OK? Build was set to ‘Universal’, wasn’t sure if to use ‘x86′ or ‘x86_64′

Edit* Apparently: “Mac build has no head tracking, barrel distortion, and the right eye and left eye are out of alignment vertically.” ..can anyone advise on how to do a Mac build? it seems you have to setup some custom stuff for it to work with a Mac?

For any users having display issues you can try some of these suggested comment strings:

3D-Heaven01.exe -adapter 1 -force-d3d9

If your side by side views are off, it could be to do with DX11 not being installed on your machine. As it is required.

3D-Heaven01

This is a very basic introductory demos for viewing realistic human scans on the Rift. Since having some extra time to learn Unity, I thought I would try out some more advanced features, like basic animation on static objects, more advanced shaders and sound effects.

I can’t wait to share more scan content for Rift viewing soon!

If you share this demo, blog about it or record any video footage, please be as respectful as you can about the person that was scanned for this demo. Although it’s a saucy pose, the intent is to be creative! not crude.

Setup Notes:

Key config:

w,a,s,d

e – up

space – down

shift – SUPER SPEED!

m – HUD

mouse look: horizontal free roam

1. Make sure you have head phones on!

2. I recommend 1920×1080.

3. If the scale seems wrong, try and alter your IPD settings, as this has a profound effect on scene scale.

ONE LAST THING!

4. Repeat step 3 until you get it right!!!

..follow your ears

…it’s full of stars!

    Unfortunately I have only a Mac here in the office where the Rift is. Can you create and upload an OSX build? I would love to have a look at this demo.

      Lee, the Mac version works fine on my iMac. A Rift version would be cool…

      Klaus

      Great. Well that was the Rift version. It should run fine. The only build difference was setting it to Mac.

      August 14, 2013

      If you have a Rift you will see it will work. By Non-Rift users I mean anyone can navigate in the Demo. I will change the wording. Try it if you have a Rift it will work.

    • Klaus
      August 14, 2013

      Hm, it’s the ML version. I see side-by-side stereo but no Rift support.

    • Infinite
      August 14, 2013

      That’s strange. It’s the same type of build. Can you move with the mouse and keys?

    • Klaus
      August 14, 2013

      Yes, i can move around with the mouse and keyboard. I’m confused – at the downloads you are writing yourself that the Mac version is the non-Rift users version.

      Keep the temperature in the room low! There’s a design fault with the sponge padding on the Rift. It tends to come apart at high temperatures :|

    This is really great stuff!
    So beautifull. Close to the models you forget all about the rifts low res.
    This demo really makes me feel thrown into the future. Such potential, really cool.

    Thnx for creating this second demo!

    The different shaders look very cool. It seems a little too bright/over exposed though. Especially the left 2 models. Looking forward to more scans!

    • Rambeauner
      August 15, 2013

      Setting my rift contrast down to 50 helped with the brightness factor

    • Infinite
      August 15, 2013

      Thanks. Yes this can happen, I set my Rift brightness / contrast low like you did.

  5. PsyQo
    August 15, 2013

    Thanks for this! I’m really keen on trying it, but am unable to view it on my rift. It seems it’s ignoring the -adapter unity command line parameter which I need to display it on my secondary screen (rift).

    I’ve tried both versions (ML and no-ML).

    • Infinite
      August 15, 2013

      I would recommend trying other Unity demos and reading up more on how to get the Rift running. I just set my main monitor to 1080p then “Duplicate desktop on 1 and 3″ (as I have a 2nd monitor for other things) then run the Unity demo on monitor 1. All should work fine. Thanks.

    • PsyQo
      August 15, 2013

      Other Unity demos work flawlessly using the -adapter command line parameter.

    • Infinite
      August 15, 2013

      What command? All I ever do with other Unity demos is start the executable on the screen I have duplicated to the Rift and they work. The same with this demo. I’m not sure what trouble you’re having? I haven’t seen others experience any issues. Please let me know how I can help.

  6. PsyQo
    August 15, 2013

    Thanks for the help!

    I’ll elaborate a bit, my current setup is:
    - 30″ screen @ 2560×1600 as primary display
    - Rift as secondary (extended) display

    I seem to be one of the few using this setup, but I can’t imagine using the OR as primary display as it’s a pain in the behind to rearrange my normal windows all the time.

    Anyway, with Unity there is a setting that you can pass along that allows you to specify what monitor to use to display content ‘-adapter’, documented here: http://docs.unity3d.com/Documentation/Manual/CommandLineArguments.html

    The default is to use the first monitor (0), so I launch your demo using:
    3D-Heaven01.exe -adapter 1

    Which should tell Unity to use my second monitor (and does so in other Unity demos such as Titans of Space, First Law, Ocean Rift, VR Cinema, etc.), but with your demo it doesn’t work.

    While investigating this issue though, I’ve found that your demo uses Direct3D 11 rendering by default and the Unity demos that work for me use Direct3D 9 by default.

    So I tried adding one more command line parameter: -force-d3d9, so it becomes:
    3D-Heaven01.exe -adapter 1 -force-d3d9

    And then it works!

    So it seems to be something with Direct3D 11 (on my machine?).

    Anyway, it looks awesome! Kudo’s on making this, I hope to see a lot more from you in the future!

    • Infinite
      August 15, 2013

      Thanks for the detailed explanation. I’ve read in various places (quote me if I’m wrong) but I think it isn’t advised to extend to the display Rift? I read from this that you seem to have it working now. I will try and bare those details in mind for other users. :)

    • PsyQo
      August 15, 2013

      I guess I’m one of the few running such a setup, yes. Probably because most people are using 1920×1080 displays these days and you can just clone that.

      My 30″, however, does 2560×1600 and when I want to clone that with my Rift I will have to use 1920×1200 (biggest 16:10 resolution ‘announced’ by the Rift to Windows) on my 30″ and that’s:
      1. A big loss of pixels
      2. Doesn’t look good because of scaling issues (non-native resolution)

      Personally I think OR demos/games should use the OR display by default. We can’t imagine consumers to do this level of trickery just to play some games on their OR.

      Extending has another downside btw: Increased latency (according to a Valve employee), I can’t find the source atm, but here is a nice writeup of some of the issues with configuration woes regarding the OR: https://developer.oculusvr.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=3348

      Thanks again for the demo, I love it!

    • PsyQo
      August 15, 2013

      Damn, I should really re-read my replies before posting! :)

    • PsyQo
      August 23, 2013

      Don’t know if you will still see this, but I’ve since learned that the Direct3D 11 renderer in Unity doesn’t honor the -adapter setting. Many Uninty demos default to D3D9, so it isn’t an issue there.

      I can view your demos with -force-d3d9 or I use a simple tool I wrote:

      Thanks again.

      August 23, 2013

      Very useful PsyQo. I’ve actually been building with Directx11 disabled and haven’t noticed any differences in quality. Maybe I can just release demos like that? What would you recommend?

    • PsyQo
      August 23, 2013

      I’m nowhere near a specialist on DirectX, but while running with -force-d3d9 I didn’t notice any differences (although I have trouble focusing on anything different than the model :P).

    • Infinite

  8. August 15, 2013

    This was really quite enjoyable, the only issue I have is that lighter colors are much harder to see on the Rift so when you are out cruising over the ground it’s almost like being snowblind.

    The model is absolutely gorgeous. It’s amazing how much detail this captures. :)

    • Infinite
      August 15, 2013

      Thanks HappyHimitsu. I agree. I set my Rift to 50/50 on contrast and brightness which helps. Anything higher I found in (UDK for exampel) can be quite hard on the eyes. White out is strong in this demo, it’s kind of part of the illusion, blending things in. Heavenly, kind of! I’m glad you enjoyed it! :)

    Hi, I’m really struggling to get the oculus to work on 1920×1080. I know you said to just “fiddle” with the IPD settings, but honestly I have no idea what kind of spectrum we are talking about. Do I double my IPD? When I run the demo I get a sort of “cut” right down my right eye (through the middle) and no ammount of tweaking seems to fix it. Got any ideas?

    • Infinite
      August 15, 2013

      I’m not sure I understand. Have you been able to get any other Unity demos working? if so there is nothing different here. You can set this demo to run at 1280×800 if you need to, that has no impact on IPD. To adjust your IPD you can use – / + keys. There should be only a very slight amount of change to get the correct scale to fit your IPD, you can adjust it in real-time. You can use M to bring up the HUD to see the IPD setting. I recommend learning how to use the Rift from the main Oculus site if you are new to it.

    • Infinite
      August 16, 2013

      Thanks ‘left’ I’m not sure how to solve that. I posted the question on this blog for help from anyone with a Mac, Unity and Rift but it seems Oculus VR and Unity support for Mac builds requires some special setup or no support at all? So I’m not sure how to configure the build to work and I can’t test here sadly, as me and Mac’s don’t get along :(

  13. August 16, 2013

    Great work again! Just two tips:
    1. I think scene is too bright. I had to lower contrast on Rift settings :)
    2. With a i7 3.4 ghz and an Ati Radeon 5870, at 1280×800 good quality it runs at 37 fps. 1280×800 at fantastic runs at 27 fps. How many polys does the scene have? For better compatibility with low end systems, i think it could be better to have a key that switch from one model/shader to another, having only one at once on the scene :)

    Keep up the good work! (i’m going to search for eeggs, now)

    • Infinite
      August 16, 2013

      Many thanks! I agree about brightness but as a rule I have the Rift set to 50 / 50. I felt when using UDK it wasn’t good for the eyes to be looking at something so close, so bright. The idea is a white heavenly scene :) I wouldn’t recommend running at Fantastic, Good should be fine for both resolutions. I’m not sure how many polys in total, perhaps about 1,000,000? with a few large 4k textures in there for colour, specular, normals, reflection and background. Most Unity demos I see, are really basic. Really optimized. I wanted to push everything as much as possible. If it runs here over 60fps, then great. I need to learn to optimize a little.

      It was geared primarily for Good setting with zero optimizations as I’m running a next-gen PC with twin GPU, SLI, 64GB. Hopefully gearing for the future XBOXTwo? PS5? :) I’m working with someone to add some cool buttons, so we can switch on / off scans just like you mentioned. Thanks for posting :)

    This demo left me wanting more, I can really see this as a sort of futuristic interactive museum, where you just walk around and go into different rooms with different models and poses. It could be like the PVC figure market, except in digital form. Stunning work, congratulations.

Im a 3d dude based in Cambs with a rift also – so if you need another rift for the day happy to float over and check out your place. Ive got a couple of winners under my hat for the rift also.

    oh mate, totally, its the beginning of new things and the end of old things. The rift and the vr experience is going to completely change everything..not just gaming, gaming will be great but – experiences – thats where its at for me. Being able to pour a brandy, adorn the rift and sit back into a vr Jacuzzi with a few nice scan chicks and a moonlight view to die for.

    This is the most photo-realistic things I’ve ever seen rendered in real time. It’s amazing to move around her and it seems so real from any angle. Great stuff, I’ll definitely be watching your site for future demos or products. If you, or someone, can get this level of realism in an animated scene, it would be as close as you can possibly get to actually being there. I realize that may be a little ways off though.

    • Infinite

    I think the best way for resolution is to set up your resolution at native 1280×800 and use as much anti-aliasing as possible. Setting 1080p and downscaling to 1280×800 for Rift is also a kind of anti-alias but I think it might cause latency and isn’t optimal. In Unity, check Project Settings -> Quality to set up anti-aliasing. Most demos I’ve tested haven’t set up anti-alias correctly, and thus graphics are jagged. I think it’s the most important graphics quality parameter for Rift, and even the ‘fastest’ should have 2xMSAA.

    As Mac doesn’t use DirectX, maybe the DX11 effects cause the problems for Mac?

    • Infinite
      September 1, 2013

      Thanks. I will take this into account. Although I personally enjoy the look of 1080p down scaling in comparison. A great example is on the VRCinema, it has a massive impact in quality.

  25. Chris
    September 1, 2013

    Is there any way to make the non-rift one a single screen? I’d understand splitscreen if the screens were reversed, but as it is, using the crossed eye’s method will not work. Also, I planned on taking some 4K screenshots for an art forum, so a single screen would help out a lot.

    • Infinite
      September 3, 2013

      This may not happen I’m afraid. But future versions will always have split screen, which is for the Rift NOT cross eyes! :) cross eyes are bad.

    Hey I just wanted to say that your work is amazing. I’m completely stunned at the fidelity of the models and I am very grateful that you have made them freely available. Is there anyway to force the renderer NOT to display it in stereoscopic view as I don’t have access to a rift (but your demo’s have convinced me to buy one!). I’m using a 1680 x 1050 pc screen and my display is effectively halved with the display being configured for the rift by default. Once again, amazing work and thanks very much.

    • Infinite

      Thanks! You can always try the latest demo. That has a dual function mono and stereo by TAB key.

    Thanks for the quick reply, I can only get the mono view by using TAB in the Multi-Light-Scans but not any others. the change was VERY dramatic. Is there any way to get this to work with previous demos? Or is it possible to import these files into unity and do something to that effect in there?

      I might make a change further down the line and re-upload the older demos but it wont be a for a while. I recommend purchasing an Oculus Rift. This is what the demos are really designed for. Seeing them in mono ruins the experience :)

    Hello, I’m sitting here puzzled, wondering why ML-Light-Scans was removed. My PC had a melt down and I’m looking for all the previously downloaded Oculus Rift related demos.

      The demo was removed due to a Copyright complaint from Burning Man because one of the backgrounds featured used a photograph (unknown to me) take on one of their “shows”. Many more demos will appear soon.

      Not long now. BIG things are coming. Many human scans are in the oven and ready to be tasted. I think you will like what is coming. No one has ever seen anything like it before.. stay tuned, thanks for coming back to check.

    Hi,
    Just wanted to say congrats on you setup you are a true master when it comes to agi scan software. Your work is truly inspiring and I appreciate that you share your findings and knowledge with us. Your rift demo looks amazing too and I’ll be looking forward to testing it out as soon as my rift arrives. You had another demo with hydra support What happened to the download link? I dont see it any more. It looked cool with the positional tracking support.
    Do you plan on added the hydra back in future demos.
    Thanks again for sharing your work

    Best Regards
    Bez

      Thanks Bez. I had to remove the latest demo because of a copyright complaint from “Burning Man” regarding one of their backgrounds. More demos are on the way, some with Razer Hydra support. Lee

    hey,
    don’t know if it has been posted already but here’s the trick to get it work on a MAC, on the app icon, just right click and choose “read information” then uncheck the “run in 64 mode”.
    This worked for me.
    hope it helps someone.

    CheerS.
