VR training exercises
Do you need innovative supports for your products presentation? Do you want to put your customers or your employees in a situation and efficiently value a complex manufacturing process? Need to raise awareness and train your teams safely? Virdys Animate is the scenario creation and visualization solution allowing you to respond, through 3D 360° animation, to all of your technical, commercial and educational communication needs.
Defense is undergoing significant technological developments. To adapt, military staff must also evolve along with their environment. In order to optimize the efficiency of your field operations, as well as training and training expenses, 3D immersion is the best support possible: it allows you to reconstruct and demonstrate the operational interest of your tactical choices or techniques, to communicate and to facilitate decision-making at a lower cost and this in an immersive and totally secure virtual environment.
Very popular with the media, 3D animation has become a universal communication vector for everyone. It facilitates the understanding of the most complex messages and reconstructs your events in an attractive and immersive way. If previously creating 3D content required complex, expensive technical and human resources, and imposed too long production times, now, Virdys Animate frees you from all these constraints and opens the doors to the quick and easy creation of your 360 ° 3D content!
How does it work ?
Step 1 : create the decor
Virdys Animate allows you to very simply create or reconstruct the decor of your animation. The software has a growing list of 3D environments and objects. You will have the choice between a multitude of urbanized “landscapes” (city, streets, towers, metro stations, stations, airports, highways, etc.), rural (fields, villages, etc.) or natural (mountains, sea, canyons, valleys, etc.). Our environment editor allows you to modify the topography of the chosen location and add / modify, if necessary, infrastructure elements (road, building, lampposts, etc.) and ready-to-use sets (grasses, trees, rocks, street furniture…)… .All with a few mouse clicks. You can also apply a geolocated 360 ° photosphere to your decor, to enhance the realism of the scene.
Step 2 : create atmosphere
With Virdys Animate, you can define your weather (sun, rain, fog, snow, sandstorm, etc.) and adjust the ambient light of the location (power and inclination of the sun rays). This allows you to stick as close as possible to the light and climate conditions of the month, day and time when the action takes place. In addition, you can insert direct auxiliary lighting (lampposts, lamps) and / or indirect (brightness of the screen of a PC, an explosion, a fire, etc.), for a high-quality visual rendering highlighting the key moments or gestures of your film. The rule is immutable: 20% of the impact of a video depends exclusively on the work done on the quality of shadows and lights, which allows Virdys Animate to do.
Step 3 : set scene
Now that the decor and the atmosphere are in place, select and position objects and the protagonist(s). Virdys Animate allows you to personalize everything: clothes, colors, equipment, vehicles or aircraft likely to intervene or play a role … By default, each object is already at the scale of the decor where it fits. It can be quickly duplicated, enlarged or reduced. Special cinematographic and weather effects can be added.
Step 4 : set actions
Now it’s time to bring animations to your project. Virdys Animate has a multi-timeline to coordinate independent actions that take place simultaneously at different locations of the stage. For each of them, you can bring your objects together (for example, a man and a gun) to animate them simultaneously. Define the animations (appearances, disappearances, moves, rotations…). Sequence them, synchronizing the trajectories with the gestures associated with each object or group of objects. The software automatically manages physics (gravity, collisions, etc).
Step 5 : position cameras
You can position up to 20 virtual cameras at your location. The seven degrees of freedom of each camera are configurable: positioning (sequence shot, traveling shot, panoramic movement, fixed shot, movements with steadycam, etc.); 3D orientation (diving, low angle, etc.); the focal length (zoom, directional blur, depth of field …). Specific filters (night vision, etc.) can be used. Each camera placed produces its own 3D video rush.
Step 6 : generate your rushes
After previewing the rushes of each camera and selecting those you like, choose the type of video you want to produce (classic, 360 °), the resolution (HD, full HD, 4K ….) and the framerate (number of images / second). Launch your film compilation. Virdys Animate allows you to embed texts and soundtracks (music, dialogues…). The video post-production will be carried out by standard software on the market. Thanks to Virdys Animate, you will therefore be able to show what was previously impossible. Put an end to the never seen.
NEW: Import of geolocated areas
This tool allows you to reproduce a city or a district from an address or longitude / latitude coordinates . You can configure your options for topography, buildings, road infrastructure, urban furniture and vegetation. The generated environments are editable and customizable at will.
NEW: Export to Virdys Collaborate
You can create and export your 3D environments, your animations and your teleportation markers to broadcast them and share them in collaborative VR with Virdys Collaborate . This new feature allows you to live an even more immersive and interactive experience than with 360 ° videos.
3D resource libraries
Over 6,500 objects, special effects and gestures are included in the libraries. Drag and drop these resources into your scene and manage the animation with the timeline.
Importe 3D objects
A third-party importer allows you to add your own 3D objects (IFC, FBX, OBJ, STL, DAE, 3DS, ES3DBUNDLE formats) and textures (PNG, JPG, TGA) to your personal library.
Export standard or 360 ° VR videos
Place up to 20 cameras in your 3D scene and export your videos up to 4K, for standard screen or 360 ° VR format in a few minutes.
Minimum configuration: PC or Mac, Windows 8/10 or Mac OS 10.10.5, Intel Core i5 or equivalent AMD, 8 Gb of RAM, dedicated graphics card with 1 Gb of RAM (GTX 780 or AMD Radeon R9), Internet : ADSL (20mbit / s) or higher.
They use Virdys Animate
“ Virdys Animate has several competitive advantages, the first of them is its speed of execution. It is therefore particularly suitable for rapid video editing. In two hours, we can start to set up a scene. And in two days, get a full video. Virdys Animate has two other competitive advantages: on the one hand, its library is not closed. It can import and use a multitude of 3D objects available on the market. On the other hand, if Virdys Animate is enough to finalize a film, it can also be considered as a tool for creating scenes that can be exported to dedicated post-production software. – CGI
