How to Choose a VR Editor
Until recently, creating a VR experience required very specific technical and programming knowledge, hiking up the costs. Now, things have changed. Creating a VR experience can take mere moments. You can tailor it to your tastes, and it can even become a fun pastime. No tech knowledge is needed to build a dazzling VR experience.
All you need is the right VR editor that has powerful features and capabilities on one hand and a totally simple user interface on the other hand. With the right system, you’ll fly right into the world of VR and have an amazing VR website in a sec.
What Should You Look for in a VR Editor?
Here are a few things to check out before choosing your 3D editor.
VR Website – Check if you can create a real VR website, with a regular URL of your choice, any number of HTML VR pages, and links between them just like a standard website.
No Code – VR shouldn’t be hard. It should be fun and easy. With today’s technology, there’s no reason to use any code for creating a VR experience. Check out the VR editor to see that it’s WYSIWYG and not some complicated interface you’ll have spend hours learning.
Features – Make sure your system offers a variety of features, like slideshows, galleries, an index and more. These features will differentiate your experience from others.
Support for Any VR Media Type – A really cool VR video would mix and match 3D videos and images of all types. Top-bottom video, side-by-side video, buttons, and more. It should also support pano so that people can view your experience without a headset.
User-Friendly Interface, Easy to Publish – Make sure your VR editor supports all platforms, including Android, iPhone, etc, otherwise some of your users won’t be able to view the experience. Also, it’s best if you don’t have to download software or apps to create the content. Look for a system that allows you to just publish the material.
Depth Control – Your VR editing tool should enable you to decide on the depth of each element so that you could set a video in the background, icons at the forefront and buttons in the middle, or in any way you prefer.
Titles – Make sure your VR editor lets you insert titles into your VR experience. This will make your creation much more communicative to its audience. You can insert explanations, slogans, titles, or anything else you want.
FOV Controls – FOV, or the Field of View is an important element in your VR experience. Controlling the FOV means you can create a wider or closer scope of vision, as required by your content.
VR Hotspots – Hotspots are one of the coolest VR features. Hotspots allow you to add a button, shape or text and make it actionable by linking it to another page or media. Don’t forget to check your system supports them.
Branding – Another cool feature you shouldn’t pass on is the ability to brand your VR experience with a logo, brand colors, slogans and more.
