Since the start of the 21st century, Digital Media has been on its peak, with new ways and technological advancements we have found innovative ways to entertain the viewers. Our journey from radio to TV and computer to Mobile devices has been very progressive. At first, it was just the sound that amused us, then came the TV with moving images and sound, the computer and smartphones changed the way we communicate and entertain ourselves. Till now we have been amused by 2D content such as images, gifs, videos etc.. But what about the devices of the future?

AR/VR Devices that are placed right above the viewer's eyes and projects (displays) 3D content around the viewer. Today The smartphones and AR/VR devices are laced with sensors that allow the applications to perform such complex tasks beautifully. This is the new era of entertainment. Vues breaks the barrier of 2D and allows the viewers to conceptualize the scene easily as it makes them feel that they are part of it.
Any 3D animated or still content that is created to render a 2D video can be converted into a Vue. In this era, videography has taken a digital avatar, movies, games, music videos, educational videos, Tutorials, commercials, etc. are created using 3D engines and editors. To create such effects in videos the scene is simulated using computers and then rendered to create a video. Once the video is done the 3D project is useless as there is no such player that plays such simulated content until now. VueXR allows users to upload still and animated 3D objects as well as displays it around the viewers on mobile devices.
Vues can be created using “ Unity 3D” engine, which is available for free from, "https://store.unity.com/" To learn more about the formats supported by Unity 3D engine go to this link, "https://docs.unity3d.com/Manual/3D-formats.html" Unity 3D is an engine that allows users to simulate and animate or create games, it does not allow you to create and edit 3d meshes, this has to be done in 3D editors like Blender, 3D max, Maya, etc.
Download VueXR Rig from unity asset store and import it into your project. Now just create a prefab of your 3D gameobject and hit build from the Vues Menu into the unity editor main menu layout. Once done, just hit upload and you are done.
