We’re just as eager to see your experiences as you are, so we’d like to help. We’ve recently released three Unity plug-ins designed to speed up and enrich the Vive development process. They’re all free and downloadable from the Unity Asset Store:

 

Vive Input Utility 1.4.7

Download: http://u3d.as/uF7

 

This plug-in is a sophisticated input wrapper that:

  • Makes it easy to get button and event tracking data from Vive devices
  • Takes advantage of the Unity Event System for laser pointers while adding a custom stabilization and damping effect
  • Eliminates the need to write redundant code to manage Vive devices
  • Provides the ability to interact with UGUI using laser pointers

 

MediaDecoder 1.0.1

Download: http://u3d.as/usf

 

The MediaDecoder is a high performance video player decoding plugin that:

 

  • Makes it easy to create a VR video player
  • Supports playing 2D, S3D, 360 and 360-degree stereo video
  • Performance optimizations can enable 8K video decoding above 90 FPS
  • Uses FFmpeg 3.0.1 library
  • Works with many implementations, not just Vive-specific ones
  • Free to use

Vive Stereo Rendering Toolkit 1.0.0

Download: http://u3d.as/A4F

 

Use the Vive Stereo Rendering Toolkit to:

 

  • Create parallax effects for mirrors, portals, security cameras or other items that would otherwise appear flat in VR
  • Drag-and-drop components to create stereoscopic rendering effects in a few minutes
  • Achieve more immersive VR experiences

Have fun!
