3D & Inter-active VR or AR Products

To showcase your products or those of your clients, or as training product...

Interactive Applications

Design

The produced applications are so-called "full web" and use OpenGL conventional web browsers used on PC or Mac (Internet Explorer> 9, Safari, FireFox, ...) as well as iOS and Android mobile devices. The interface is programmed in JavaScript and CSS. No plug-in or installation are needed to run these applications. The only limitations are due to too large 3D models. The quality of the models is therefore the key point in creating this type of product.

VR (Virtual Reality) & AR (Augmented Reality)

Both technologies are gaining momentum in the entertainment market and present interesting opportunities in many industrial areas. WITS Engineering, together with experts in the VR / AR field, is able to help you define the business need and the associated scenarios in virtual or augmented reality applications. HTC Vive for high-immersion applications for training, for example, or Samsung Gear VR (distributed by Occulus) for VR / AR mobile applications. The software platforms used are multiple, mainly Unity 3D, Vuforia and Blender4Web.

 

Working Process

Based on your specific needs, we establish specifications on product features. This will define the components or parts to show / hide, and animations to provide the desired interactivity for the user. We should also specify the upstream environment in which the application will be deployed (user PC / Mac and / or portable device). Several options are open with respect to the implementation of 3D models:

  1. Models exist and can be transmitted (Typically under OBJ format or other as appropriate)
  2. The models do not exist. A benefit of creating these models can then be implemented.
Note that in the second case, the models will be made in an optimal manner (reduced in size) to allow more fluidity in the use of the application , especially on mobile devices...

The applications are delivered either online (hosted on server) or issued as stand-alone applications onto an USB storage device.

 

Video Animation

The videos are usually delivered in mp4 format encoded in H.264 to enable playing of videos on all types of terminals (fixed or mobile). As with inter- active applications, the design process follows the same logic described below:

  • Together we define your needs in terms of technical content of the video and to whom it is intended.
  • We then proceed to the collection of technical material required for the making of the video (drawings and 3D models if existing , various technical documents , specifications ... )
  • We submit a "storyboard" of the video for discussion and validation . This document presents snapshots of the video and the technical content to insert .
  • We implement the models, textures materials and animation scenes.
  • We deliver installation and deliver a first version of the video for review and validation.
  • We finally deliver a final version of the video.

Partnerships and software used

Except in special cases discussed with our clients, WITS Engineering uses modern and open softwares for creating 3D models and realistic renderings for the creation of inter-active utilisants these models applications.

The primary strength of WITS Engineering lies in being able to transform your business needs into technical requirements for these new IT developments. In parallel, associations set up with experts in creation and development of 3D content also allow us to guarantee the quality of a finished product for your company.
