Ebenezer doing Thriller via Unity and mixed reality (MR)


Been learning Unity over the past couple of months along with refreshing my HTML, CSS and Javascript knowledge (will post on D3 learning separately).  So I needed something to bring to life so I could learn the tech behind Mixed Reality – like an updated version of Augmented Reality – so I dug old Ebenezer McRae out of retirement https://shielyule.com/2016/08/13/leith-outdoor-gallery-fringe-venue-421/ and created a 3D version of him. In the process I discovered Adobe Fuse (Creative Suit has all these obscure beta programs) for creating the character and mixamo for posing and animation. Now Unity3d – graphics rendering, next-gen runtime, and more artist tooling – is a vast programme and I am only just getting my head around it, but have managed to get Ebenezer up and dancing in the virtual world . . .
