How to create an ORBX VR Movie ?

Postby Frank1000 » Wed Jan 11, 2017 5:04 pm

Hi,
what's the rough procedure for creating an ORBX VR movie ?, like for example the Adam animated VR movie where i can watch around while movie is playing back. As its not a .png file like the stills any more, its an .orbx file. I use Blender with the Octane Demo rt now, does it support .orbx VR movie files ?

Regards,
Frank

All of those VR movies were created on ORC, where we use unused CPU cycles to encode each SCM frame for multiple OpenGL ES device profiles while Octane uses the GPU. I wish we had one codec, but differences in GPUs make this hard. So the GearVR GL codec is not the same as PCVR desktop GL codec, and we create different .OKX frames for each, and use ORC to link multiple encoded output to the render job ID, which you can use to download (or live stream) the right ORBX media file based on useragent (baseline stream is HTML5/webVR through orbx.js) .

Encoding took longer than rendering for the Adam frames (and would cost a lot if we didn't run it in parallel to GPU work). It is handled in ORBX Media server module on the cloud, which can also be used to set up live adaptive streaming of the same media (and baked meshes, or LF streams in the future). ORBX media server is currently a different app than Octane, but you can download the non-cloud Windows PC version for free from install.otoy.com. This can be used to try some of the OPRBX live VR streaming and broadcasting features (currently virtual chrome and virtual desktop) inside Oculus Social or OMP.

thx for reply.
Ok i c, so as far as i understood there is not yet a VR .orbx movie renderer included in the downloadable Octane renderer. ORC, is it the Octane Render Cloud where i could outsource the movie render job to ? Link (didn't finde on website) ?
For me rt now its just about simple procedure testing to prepare for production planning.

... is there currently a way available to render Octane VR movies ?
If not, what's the roadmap ?

If you have some frames to encode Jax can help you run some test frames next week (GVR only). We need a lua script node down the line that packages your rendered frames into an animated texture node and runs it through ORC for you if you only want encoding and not rendering..

ok great, will do. Is there a time frame for Octane upgrade with VR movie ?
I rendered a test, but the .png is coming odd in Gear VR, possibly because i used a screenshot of the tiny Octane Demo render result and don't know if ORBX Browser needs .png with additional info in it. I have a post about it here viewtopic.php?f=98&t=58485&p=300767#p300767
