It is by far one of the most exciting product updates yet! With our latest version of the VRdirect Studio, it is now possible to place external web links within your VR project. This allows you to extend the 360-degree-experience and connect your project with the rest of the world. In this blog article, we’ll show you how to use the new feature.
We are very proud to announce, that we just released the new version 2.2.0 of VRdirect Studio.
The latest improvements include a new feature, which was brought to us directly from the VRdirect community! At this point we’d like to take the opportunity to say thank you for your support and please keep sharing your ideas with us.
So let’s dive straight into it:
The new feature enables creators to integrate the opening of external web links, making it possible to communicate with “the outside world” – in this case: external web browsers.
You can now link to a client’s website, an online article or maybe an online shop. When clicking on an object inside the VR project, the users will be redirected to their web browser (on desktop, mobile or VR glass), which will open the web link.
While being redirected to external browser/website, the VR project will pause. Users can then actively go back to the VR project and continue. It is also important for you to know: The redirecting to external web links relies on a stable and working internet connection.
The new feature works for objects (as an interaction event) as well as for scenes (as a time event).
