UberCam 2.5

UberCam 2.5 (Updated! November 28th, 2016)

The Ultimate in Advanced Camera Technology for Lightwave3D featuring Oculus Rift and Immersive VR Camera Support.

Liberty3D UberCam is a plug-in for NewTek’s LightWave3D that enhances the LightWave platform with additional camera capabilities while expanding into the realm of Virtual Reality. Three years of additional research and development, testing and customer feedback since the release of Version 1.9 have been brought forward in Version 2.5.

Version 2.5 has been updated to deal with several bugs and we have been doing many performance tweaks to make the product better than ever before.

OculusDK2PromoImageIn version 2.0.2 we introduced additional specific tools and cameras to the artist who wants to explore Virtual Reality content creation using LightWave3D. Virtual Reality over the last 4 years has exploded and Liberty3d.com has been working quietly to bring forward tools to LightWave artists that will give them a competitive edge in this new medium. With even further improvements having been made in the 2.4 release in UberCam are unique in the industry thus far and as a result are not available for any other package out there in a simple to use and affordable tool set.

Now in Version 2.5, UberCam has been improved even further with enhancements to our Immersive VR and Immersive Stereoscopic VR cameras providing seamless renders for VR enthusiasts and professionals using LightWave’s native render engine. No special third party GPU renderers required.

Our development efforts in the areas of Virtual Reality for UberCam continue and we will be providing additional tools and functionality to the package in the very near future. This will includes support for additional Virtual Reality Headsets beyond the Oculus Rift (i.e. HTC Vive, FOVE, etc.).

With UberCam 2.5 you get the original cameras from previous versions of Ubercam with many bug fixes, performance enhancements and the added capabilities we have introduced that opens up new possibilities.

We have some videos for you to check out showing off some of the new features of UberCam 2.5

Here is a video by Kat showing you just how easy it is to set up the Oculus Rift (DK 1.1 version) inside Virtual Studio Tools. This gives you real-time rotational head tracking from the Oculus Rift. Put on your Rift and look around your LightWave3D scenes in Virtual Reality!VSTRiftDemoVideo
Here is another video by Chilton Webb showing our new Immersive Camera in UberCam 2.0.2. You want to pay attention to this one because you can now make cool videos on youtube that are in 360degree spherical format! This format is going to explode (actually it already is) as it works on everyday smartphones, Google Cardboard and youtube and let’s you pan around.

If you are wondering what the big deal is about Immersive Cameras, you need look no further than Facebook and Youtube. The Immersive VR Video format (renticular 2:1 images) has exploded in just the last 5 months with support for the format having been adopted by Facebook and Google in a big way.

We go beyond monoscopic rendering however for 360 degree spherical rendering with the introduction of the new Immersive Stereo Camera (introduced in 2.0.2) which now provides for seamless rendering of stereoscopic scenes in version 2.5. Also introduced for the Immersive Stereoscopic Camera is a Convergence Point function that is fully equipped with envelope control.

This new camera produces stereoscopic 360 VR renders which are impossible with any other camera in existence for LightWave3D. Not only that, but UberCam 2.1 introduces a new proprietary ray tracing algorithm that has been specifically optimized to reduce distortion at the poles (top and bottom) of the render results yet maximizing stereoscopic effect. This is something that you won’t find in other competing camera or shader technology at triple the price (or more) for any other 3D package using any other rendering engine.

With all of these features UberCam 2.5 represents a complete, end to end solution for creating amazing virtual reality content with LightWave3D.
