Oculus releases Medium 2.0
Oculus has released a new version of Medium, it’s VR sculpting app. New features include:
- A new Asset Browser and Scene Graph. Users now have faster context switching, customizable scene hierarchy, and easier setup for integration into project and asset pipelines.
- Reduced memory usage and improved performance with a new, Vulkan-based graphics engine.
- A new Move Tool with an elastic move option for more physically realistic deformations, letting you pull and stretch the sculpt in a more natural way.
- Grid snap and angle snap – good for hard surface and precise angles.
- Plane constraint for the Clay tool makes sculpting flat areas much easier.
- The ability to add up to 8 lights, choosing between Spotlight or Pointlight types, with one shadow map on one spotlight.
- Layer limit has been increased from 20 to 100 on most configurations.
- Resolution visualization: hover over a resolution operation to view your layer’s current density level before changing.
- Import mesh updates including the ability to import directly as sculptable clay, bring in multiple layers, choose the starting sculpt resolution and more.
- Use coloured stamps! When you make a stamp from a layer or import a stamp with textures/ vertex colours, it will retain its colours. Tint with overall clay tool colour section if desired.
- Updated colour picker offers more control and precision.
- Reduced memory usage across the app, so detailed sculpts to be created on a broader range of machines.
- Performance improvements– higher framerates with less hitching, due to the new graphics engine.
