There are now a few tools available for virtual reality (VR) that allow users to paint or sculpt in VR. Astonishingly beautiful things have already been made in apps such as Google Tilt Brush or Oculus Medium. There will soon be a program that allows up to four users to work together to sculpt a 3D creation called Masterpiece VR.
Masterpiece VR gives up to four users a virtual sandbox to work in, along with a host of intuitive tools for 3D modelling that allow for the creation of collaborative works in VR. Masterpiece VR is compatible with traditional 3D modeling workflows, so users can export works made in Masterpiece VR into commonly used formats such as OBJ, STL and FBX.
The software also has integrated live-streaming functions, so users can use the virtual sandbox like a live studio installation to create works in real time and broadcast them to an audience on YouTube, Facebook or Twitch. Or give an audience a detailed walkthrough and explanation of some finished works.
“We wanted to push the boundaries by creating an organic 3D modeling tool that is both powerful and easy to learn,” said CEO of Masterpiece VR, Jonathan Gagne. “VR was the medium to do this in. It let us take a big step forward in the development of a tool that let people work together in real-time to co-create on the same piece or contribute feedback or critique immediately.”
Masterpiece VR is designed to work on HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and the upcoming Windows 10 mixed reality headsets. It is due to be released on Steam Early Access on 14th September, 2017. A price point is yet to confirmed.
