My name is Max Krichenbauer, of MARUI-PlugIn. (https://www.marui-plugin.com)
We’re making VR/AR plug-ins for 3D design software, most importantly for Autodesk Maya.
Here is a video of our latest release “MARUI v3”:
We often hear from Blender users in the VR/AR world how much they would like to have something like MARUI for Blender - the ability to work in VR/AR.
Since we’re also big fans of the Blender project, we’d be happy to deliver and contribute.
We started studying the Blender source code and think we found a way to add VR support without interfering with the any other development.
We already managed to build a prototype VR viewer that works for the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and Windows MR headsets.
We don’t really want a clumsy plug-in solution nor a separate “our-VR-enabled-only” fork.
Our concept would be to provide all of our changes as source code to the Blender project itself,
and finance the development via crowd-funding / donations from VR enthusiasts in the Blender user community.
So I wanted to have an open and friendly discussion here on whether such an effort would be welcomed.
Please let me know your opinion.
