Retail Grocery Asset Pack - Unreal Engine 4

WIP: Retail Asset Pack for Unreal Engine 4

The goal here is to create a fully stocked grocery store for use in Archtectural Visualisations & computer games.

Obviously there are a lot of items in a fully stocked store so I’ve put a lot of thought into optimizing models and draw calls for use in a real-time graphics engine such as unreal engine 4.  For example, in the screenshot below there are only 2 unique static meshes for the entire shop’s confectionary, all driven by a single branding texture atlas.  I made 2 different materials for each giving 4 unique stacks of confectionary.  Once you reposition the stacks and mix & match materials and static meshes you get enough variation to look convincing IMHO.

I took a similar approach to the bottles crisp packets & cans, mixing individual models in different configurations and using multiple materials to drive the variation.

There’s a lot of work still to be done. If you think you would be interested in buying the final product, come give me encouragement on twitter – @cedeon.

Virtual Reality Construction Details – Proof of concept

We recently created a quick proof of concept 360 degree stereoscopic 3D Virtual Reality video for a UK Building regulations robust construction detail.

The idea is to use cutting edge V.R. Headsets such as the Oculus Rift or lower cost options like Google Cardboard on smart phone to leverage new design visualisation opportunities.  This is just a rudimentary example that took us one day to complete – we could easily expand this animation to include anything you can imagine.

If you are a Google Cardboard owner please use the you tube option here.

 

Oculus Rift owners please click here to watch this on Vrideo

It probably goes without saying but at the time of posting this you would need to be running a cutting edge (Nightly Firefox) browser if you have a VR headset but im guessing if you have one then you already know that.
