The Range of VR Video Applications Today
It has seemingly become so simple. Virtual reality (VR), a once highly technical and tedious craft is slowly becoming a simple hobby among many young ‘techies’. A lot of it has to do with the fact that technology necessary for the trade has become more readily available and affordable. And the other half of it is the fact that many of the knowledge needed to create VR videos is also readily available in the internet. As it is with many facets of modern life, learning has never become so easy.
In a nutshell, VR videos or interactive media videos are multi-media utilities that provide 360 view plus mobility functions that allow head movement, natural hand griping and other real-life motions like hitting an objects. VR videos completely and convincingly stimulate and recreate actual situations and interaction within a controlled environment.
And the attraction and fascination among a new generation is understandable. Unlike 3-dimensional and 360-videos that provide life-like viewing experiences, VR videos provide a richer experience since users are not just immersed as spectators or viewers but are actually involved as actual participants in the simulated world.
In terms of production however, VR video production in Singapore uses pretty much the same equipment as those used in 3d and 360 video productions. These include 3d cameras, multiple mounts and drones to name only the more common ones. However, the major difference comes in data processing soft wares. VR production involves the need to process significant amount of data primarily in multiple angle shots, surround sound materials, motion-sensing inputs and therefore require extremely powerful computers and sophisticated applications. Today, amateur VR production enthusiasts, whether amateur or professional can enjoy the many advantages of simple soft wares like Photo Sphere, 360 Panorama, and Splash which are ‘lighter’ applications that can already effectively allows video makers and users to stitch together various raw elements into a complete virtual world with user-friendly interface.
But more than anything else, VR production in Singapore is slowly redefining reality itself as the craft is slowly invading many features of everyday life from education to entertainment. In terms of applications, VR video production in Singapore has had various uses in entertainment and gaming. But recently, the benefits of VR in Singapore has gone beyond these realms.
Nowadays, VR videos in Singapore are being used therapeutic management of many common modern day ailments like addiction, anxiety disorder, autism, pain, fear and a host of other trauma induced disorder such as sexual and disaster trauma. Since VR videos and technology can create simulated worlds that allows a person to suspend disbelief, VR can put patients into a manufactured but realistic scenario similar to the one that they experienced that triggered their trauma. This virtually, or literally, allows clinician or therapists to see the scenario asIn education, VR applications in Singapore have provided multiple benefits in terms of allowing students a more participatory learning experience that involves multiple senses and is therefore more effective than typical visual or oral pedagogies. The classroom uses of Virtual Reality in Singapore makes the students active rather than passive participants and allows for exploration and hands on approach which helps in better understanding of complex topics or concepts and generally improves learning and retention. Since VR is a completely immersive experience, it commands attention on the part of the learner and significantly regulates distraction and facilitates focus or attention on the part of the learner.
