I started working with computer graphics in the 90s developing techniques at an architectural firm. Despite doing a lot of work with CGi and film I have specialised in real-time rendering since before the first release of Unreal.
After experimenting with the Doom engine I wrote a patent to use realtime technology for architectural visualisation over 20 years before it became standard practice today. I developed one of the first commercial VR projects here in the UK back in 2012; A fully explorable Hotel proposal, at a time when Oculus was selling the first VR headset prototype (development Kit 1). This ran smoothly on an Nvidia 880m chipset and contained baked lighting, real-time reflections and static crowds for context. I established techniques for VR production including forward path rendering, MSAA sampling and gaze activated teleportation, over a year before Oculus and Epic built Showdown which discovered the same techniques..
Since then I have created an exciting new format for experiencing VR with VRCE (virtual reality curated experiences), and have been busy building the worlds first 3d Macro experience; using photogrammetry to construct high fidelity models of insects and micro environments, that can be experienced in VR at enlarged scales – a kind of insect safari. The experience will enhance our perception of reality at a subconscious level.
