Google Gives Artists A New Way To Animate
Daydream Labs has developed the simplest 3D animation concept yet
Google’s Daydream Labs has developed a way to simplify the art of 3D animation through the use of virtual reality. People can directly engage in creating their own stories by moving an object through a scene. These actions rapidly create a tale. The developers found that these simple maneuvers within virtual reality completely change the way people interact with animation.
In one of these VR experiments, the team at Daydream Labs got people to bring characters to existence by letting them pick toys and move them around. The scene would be recorded and played, producing a short film. In the video below, viewers see a plane fly through a band of Android robots, for example.
