RISE Oculus Tech Demo Gets 4K Trailer and More!
Peter Donnell / 2 years ago
RISE is one of the hottest topics for Oculus Rift owners or potentially anyone interested in VR experiences in general. Promising to be a fully immersive VR experience, telling the story of a robot uprising, albeit from the perspective of a captured sentient robot agitator, RISE certainly has a unique perspective on its story.
We’ve seen lots of cool things at GDC 2015, but RISE certainly stands out from the crowd thanks to its impressive use of Unreal Engine 4 technology. The technical demo that has been released features real-time VFX assets, dynamic physical camera simulation, which gives us accurate depth of field, with full 16-bit float scene for dynamic and very accurate exposure adjustment! If all that sounds like gibberish, it means we get virtual versions of real world camera adjustments, the likes you would typically find in a movie.
“All of this technical work and the immense level of detail that we’ve added to the scene and characters in particular, create this truly amazing look that will just blow people away. The RISE VR experience is just one of the ways we are experimenting with this exciting technology as we work to build experiences and software solutions that will shape the way we interact and consume media in the future.” said Philip Lunn, CEO of Nurulize.
Nurulize’s RISE tech demo shows off many new technologies from UE4, such as Graphine’s advanced textured streaming middleware ‘Granite SDK’. This helps them achieve 4K resolutions @ 90FPS, despite the high levels of fidelity.
