V3 is a new startup developing a new tool for 3D animators to rapidly develop and prototype 3D animations in immersive VR environments with 3D specific user interfaces, which has received positive feedback from VR developers, stating a need for in-VR tools for rapid prototyping and spatial design.
The currently available animation software has become highly complex, with a steep learning curve, and is built from a 2D perspective. The only way for animators to have a good overview of their work is to have multiple angles shown at a time and is still limited when using traditional tools. V3 has built a tool that allows the user to design and animate objects directly in VR, allowing them dynamically to update their viewpoint, as well as have a stronger understanding of perspective and depth, than they would get from a traditional computer screen. V3’s tool is easy to use and intuitive requires less tutoring and would provide customers with the ability to rapidly onboard animators to use the tool quickly. For private users, it means that they can get started faster, and new animators may get to learning animations quicker instead of having to spend a lot of time with online tutorials just to learn how to use their software. An additional benefit to the company’s solution is that the workflow is healthier, involving more movement rather than long times spent sitting in front of a screen doing stationary work.
