JCPalmer Posted May 17, 2015 Share Posted May 17, 2015 This is an idea I have started to think about. It is not quite fully baked, so let me say what I think would be a good strategic direction & why, first. At Xmas, I bought myself a new 4x, 3D, Sony TV. Have not done a lot with the 3D yet, but did run some samples from a channel on Roku, which I have from my prior setup. Looked amazing. When I viewed the samples with the 3D off on the TV, they were just 2 pictures side by side. Am waiting for Sony's 2015 4x upscaling 3D Blue-ray player with "Playstation now" built in, but I digress. There is also a screen mirroring feature on the Sony & probably other brands. It uses something called miracast. http://www.howtogeek.com/200796/what-is-miracast-and-why-should-i-care/ . What if you could make either a website, or app, which the user could run on a mobile device with a switch to go 3D. If they had a 3D TV, then it might be unbelievable. Great for Device orientation, arc rotate, and possible game pad cameras.- - - - - - - - -Now the how:I have nothing against Oculus, but having a whole set of duplicate cameras just for it is not great. What if Oculus flops? Oculus cameras might even be used to achieve this, except for this wierd distortion required. Might it not be better to refactor into putting an undistorted 3D capability into FreeCamera & arcRotateCameras, turned on with set3D(true)? You could also have a setOculus(true), which also distorts it. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
