What is Vizible?

...and what isn't it?

What is Vizible?

Vizible is simple yet powerful VR creation and collaboration software. Lots of VR creation software is for developers. Vizible is virtual reality for the rest of us. You can download it here.

There are two parts to Vizible, one to create VR content and another to experience it. With Vizible Presentation Designer, you create rich, interactive VR presentations with no coding. Then, with Vizible Presenter, you hold sessions, multi-user gatherings inside of your presentations for real time communication and collaboration in virtual reality.

Participants of Vizible sessions can grab and inspect 3D models, mark up the space with virtual pencils, use laser-pointers, and more. Vizible is used for business meetings, education/training, design review, demos, walkthroughs, and all kinds of online collaboration.

Vizible works on Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and Desktop PC. We also have experimental support for Windows Mixed Reality headsets, and support for more platforms is coming.

What isn't Vizible?

Vizible is not a development engine like Vizard, Unity 3D, or Unreal. If you're expecting the ability to program or do advanced physics or rendering work, then Vizible probably isn't the tool for you. 

Vizible also isn't a 3D modeling tool. We let you import, arrange, and do basic modifications to a wide variety of 3D models (among other media formats), but it's not the tool you would use to create a 3D model from scratch. 

Finally, Vizible isn't "the metaverse", an open, social virtual environment where you might run into total strangers. Although Vizible sessions are collaborative, you always control who can attend your sessions.

Overview

When you download Vizible and install it, the installer will ask you if you're using Vizible simply to attend a Vizible presentation or if you're using it to create VR presentations. If you just want to be an attendee, then only Vizible Attendee will be installed. If you want to create Presentations, then three separate applications will be installed: Vizible Presentation Designer, Vizible Presenter, and Vizible Attendee.

Vizible Presentation Designer is what you use for VR creation. Presentation Designer has a user interface that might remind you of PowerPoint or Google Slides.  Each "slide" in Presentation Designer is a 3D scene that you can populate with 3D models, spherical videos, 2D videos, images, sounds, documents, and more. You can add interactivity to the presentation via triggers and sensors - no coding. You can even make recordings of yourself as an avatar and embed those. Like with a Google Doc, multiple users can work on the same Vizible presentation at one time.

Once you're ready to share your presentation, you create "sessions". A session is an exclusive time in which the results of your work in Presentation Designer can be experienced in VR hardware or on desktop, alone or with others. All content created in Presentation Designer is inherently multi-user, but you can also experience it on your own. At the time of the session, to join it as the presenter or host, you use Vizible Presenter. Attendees use Vizible Attendee.

Once inside a session, participants have voice chat (spatialized) and see each other as avatars with tracked controllers. Participants have tools available like laser pointers, pencils, grabbers, and movement tools.  

Note :

Anyone with the right hardware can download Vizible Attendee and join sessions, but to use Presentation Designer or join a session as the Presenter, you must have an account.  You can download it and create an account here.
