VR Toolbox Inc. has announced the release of The VR Worx 2.1. The software is a suite of VR authoring tools developed for QuickTime and the company bills it as “built for Mac OS X.”
The VR Worx can create cylindrical panoramic movies, object movies and multi-node scenes — enabling users to create “virtual tours.” The software also supports the ability to create an object movie that has a panoramic movie for a background. New to this version, The VR Worx supports transitions within a multi-node scene, enabling users to add wipes, dissolves, explodes and other effects. VR Toolbox notes that The VR Worx does not yet support the ability to compose QuickTime 5’s Cubic VR format, but it does link Cubic VRs together.
VR Toolbox Vice President Walter Neals said that his company is proud to be among the first to support Mac OS X. Indeed, The VR Worx 2.1 is the company’s first Mac OS X product.
“This extraordinary operating system software has the potential to affect the way we use computers more than anything since the introduction of the Macintosh itself. VR Toolbox is honored to be a part of it,” said Neals.
Look for The VR Worx 2.1 to be demonstrated at VR Toolbox’s booth at the Jacob K. Javits convention center — number 2038. Macworld Conferences & Expo runs through July 20.
VR Toolbox is distributing The VR Worx 2.1 immediately in electronic format — it can be purchased directly from VR Toolbox and from authorized resellers.
