We are excited to announce that you are now able to create and edit text within our Ingenic Creator! Now, without having to take off your headset, you can generate interactive text assets, change their styling, and even add a background or drop shadow.
This feature is designed to create experiences even faster than before. No longer do you have to remove your headset and use another graphic design program to create different embedded text assets. Today, you have access to all of the tools you will need in SPIN Play’s edit mode from the comfort of your headset.
With this new feature, creating and managing text is easier than ever. Now, you can treat text like any other asset in a scene: you can grab it, move it in z-space, scale it up or down, or even set it as a hyperport.
Imagine you are creating an interactive tour of a college campus. Using the Ingenic Creator, all you have to do is type out “Visit the Dorms,” or “Enter the Science Building,” and set that text as a hyperport to lead viewers to an immersive 360° video of students studying in the dorms or using the labs in the science building. Voilà! Now you have a clear, interactive, and engaging tour of your school to show off to prospective students and parents.
For those concerned with efficiency, you should know that you can also create text assets on a computer from within SPIN Studio. Just pick a scene to generate a text asset, and quickly type out your copy on a physical keyboard. Make sure you have updated your SPIN Play application to the latest version to start creating text in VR today!
