Working process

We have created base timeline for creating the interactions and the objects that would connect to the storyline and clues of users’s finding out their identity in the game, by using blueprints and interactions with action boxes.

Encountering difficulties

  • Mirroring problem

  • Grab trigger for depth kit video

  • Letter picking up and reading (user interface)

  • VR Body

  • Putting tape into another object

Solutions

  • The VR IK Body is still under development, and we have tried different solutions, but it doesn’t seem to work well in Unreal yet. We have successfully solved the other problems.

  • We solved the events of grabbing the photo and release will trigger to depth kit video to show by using blueprints.

  • We wanted to show the letter in more details, so when we placed the letter in front of user interface whenever the user triggers the letter.

  • For inserting the tape in the television, I solved it by creating animations and delay the activation of the movie on the television.
