Ossymar is in the ITP Winter Show ’07

Wednesday, December 12th, 2007


After a few bumps, Ossymar my surreal creation, made the rigorous selection and will be one of the projects showed at the ITP 2007 Winter Show.

Ossymar is a semi-immersive, interactive 3D virtual world that was built with surrealism in mind.

Brief description:
Ossymar is a virtual world made up of a couple different environments that a user needs to find and explore. There are many surprises waiting, such as, a bubble tree, Emu-corns Rex, a field of animated vines and flying dolphins just to name a few.

The virtual space was put together in Virtools and Maya and uses video and audio feeds as well as various interactive methods to give the user a rich semi-immersive multimedia experience.

The end of the year is coming and with is so comes finals for school! I am making a virtual world called Ossymar as a final project for my P2V class. If you are interested in reading more about this interactive 3D surreal world, please visit the link below.
The project is still work in progress so be patient =)

Check this animation out!
I made the 3D terrain and planes in Maya using the mesh tools.
I imported the Meshes into Virtools and programmed some simple interactions to give the viewer different views of the terrain and airplanes. Press the buttons 1 through 5 for different camera angles. You may need to download the 3D plug in to view the animation. But its so worth it!


Preparing 3D modles in Maya

Thursday, October 18th, 2007

For the Class Physical to Virtual and Back (P2V) we are designing 3D models in Maya and then exporting to Virtools for programming and interface building. This is a fictional fighter jet I made. Soon I will be exporting this to Virtools so I can program it to respond to sound sensors and video feeds.

Here is a video of the 3D model in progress.
