• The ability to create 360-degree movies. With the release of 8.0, the CET Designer Movie Studio Extension will enable users to create and render 360-degree, panoramic videos – offering an incredibly expansive view of a designed space. (View a 360-fly-thru video here: https://www.facebook.com/CETDesigner/videos/10154875622703052/.)
• Enhancements to Configura’s Virtual Viewer VR Extension. Support for HTC Vive headsets launches with CET Designer 8.0; meanwhile, Oculus Rift headsets already are supported by the Virtual Viewer VR Extension. Plus, Configura’s recent collaboration with Yulio “democratizes” VR through the use of inexpensive 3D headsets such as Google Cardboard. Configura’s Virtual Viewer VR Extension along with a VR headset offers an immersive, virtual reality experience of a designed space. This year at NeoCon (June 12-14 in Chicago), Configura will demo these VR technologies and be giving away Yulio-supported Google Cardboard 3D headsets.
