In this tutorial you will learn about:

The new VR Asset Pack is a suite of scripts and UI elements that make it easier to author cross-platform interactive scenes using Amazon Sumerian. The pack automatically detects supported controllers and allows developers to customize button input colors and animation. It also provides an easy way to add functionality such as grabbing and moving entities, teleporting, and emitting custom messages that trigger State Machine behaviors.

NOTE: Going forward, we recommend using this tutorial and the VR Asset Pack for VR functionality instead of the the CoreVR asset pack, discussed in other tutorials.

In this tutorial, you will learn how to setup the VR Asset Pack. We will then experiment by setting up a sample scene. This tutorial includes the following topics:

  • Importing the VR Asset Pack into a scene
  • Adding VR Grab functionality to entities
  • Adding VR teleport functionality to entities
  • Adding functionality to entities in VR that trigger state machine behaviors.

Before you begin, we recommend that you have some familiarity with many of the Sumerian Getting Started tutorials.

The following VR Platforms are supported by Amazon Sumerian:

  • Oculus Quest
  • Oculus Rift
  • Oculus Go
  • HTC Vive
  • HTC Vive Pro
  • Samsung Gear VR
