This workshop will delve into the process of creating animated content using Virtual Reality creation tools in tandem with Unity, a game engine. With the goal of demystifying Virtual production workflows, this presentation will explore how animation works in Virtual Reality and the various ways it can expedite the process, enabling single artists to do the work of entire teams in significantly less time.
