Your Gateway To Virtual Reality

The stereoscopic view gives you a precise and natural impression of scene scale and proportion. Experience the entire depth of Virtual Reality in the most intuitive way. HMD movement can be recorded as camera animation, hand controllers are recorded as locators. Use your gamepad as fly-cam and explore the surrounding area.
Speed and performance are the great advantages of the Maya Viewport 2.0
Benefit from full DirectX11/OpenGL lighting and shading support with Virtual Reality.
VR-Plugin transforms your work space to virtual within seconds – no export required.

“When designing for VR, being able to have spatial understating and context for your design is a key necessity. A design might look amazing in a 2D flat surface but look and feel completely different when looked at three-dimensionally with the headset. VR-Plugin for Autodesk Maya allows me to look at a design for VR in its NATIVE medium so I can make important decisions and changes on the fly. I highly recommend this plugin to anyone serious about designing in VR”

Eli Guerron – Lead Visual Designer at Oculus VR
