An interactive user-experience with virtual environments of high visual-quality usually demands either authoring tools of movie- industry level and a server farm, or a native application on the client, or both.

Abstract

An interactive user-experience with virtual environments of high visual-quality usually demands either authoring tools of movie- industry level and a server farm, or a native application on the client, or both. Conversely, we introduce here a novel 3D work- flow, targeting specifically the largest needs of high-quality VR ex- perience. Our workflow architecture incorporates both authoring and navigation of quasi-photorealistic scenes directly on the Web platform, thus including mobile and VR devices, and is specifically addressed to the common use by the street man. No software instal- lation is needed. Both simplified authoring and exploration tools are Three.js based, and are mutually connected by a Web service that automatically produces high quality textures, which include light- ing effects, multiple soft shadows, reflections and refractions, by exploiting the Blender’s physically-based Cycles render engine.
