Amazon Sumerian Virtual Reality Tools

Sumerian provides a pack of virtual reality (VR)-related assets to make it easy to enable VR in your scene. The asset pack includes a VR camera that lets the user enter VR mode, and VR controllers for interacting with the environment.

Supported VR Headsets

  • Oculus Rift

  • Oculus Go

  • HTC Vive

  • HTC Vive Pro

  • Lenovo Mirage Solo

  • Samsung Gear VR

  • Google Daydream

To enable VR in your scene

  1. Open a scene in the Sumerian editor.

  2. Choose Import assets.

  3. Choose CoreVR, and then choose Add.

  4. When the asset pack finishes loading, drag the VRCameraRig entity onto the canvas to add it to your scene.

  5. Choose the VRCameraRig entity.

  6. Choose the VRCameraRig component.

  7. Choose the Current VR camera rig option to enable the rig.

When a user enters VR mode with a headset and controllers attached, the HMD camera tracks the headset, and the VR controllers track the controllers in 3D space. The VR camera rig manages the other entities and enables the VR mode button in the scene.

Only the controllers of the type attached are rendered in the scene, so you can leave all of the included entities attached to support both types. You can also replace the included controller models with your own.

See Getting Started with VR for a tutorial that uses these assets.
