The Leia Plugin incorporates a suite of tools enabling simple content creation and conversion with Unreal, creating an infinite content ecosystem for 3D Lightfield displays.
Leia’s 3D Lightfield displays offer a more accessible alternative to AR/VR eyewear. 3D Lightfield technology integrates into display-based devices to offer familiar products, which are naturally immersive and easy to use.
Leia's software platform incorporates a suite of tools enabling simple content creation and conversion with Unreal, creating an infinite content ecosystem for 3D Lightfield displays.
Requirement: This plugin is a companion for 3D Lightfield enabled devices, a requirement to view the 3D effect provided by the Leia Plugin.
Leia’s patented 3D Lightfield technology recreates light on a screen in the same way that light behaves in the physical world.
Leia applies this approach on behalf of two proprietary technologies: a unique nanotechnology layer that is inserted underneath a screen, projecting 3D content with a depth, speed and clarity similar to how humans see in real life; and Leia’s AI software, which leverages any content, 2D or 3D, to create a beautifully immersive experience on its displays.
The Leia Plugin will handle rendering content through an easy-to-use interface, giving your project 3D depth when viewed on Lightfield displays.
This documentation will support you to get started with creating your own immersive 3D experiences! And these videos will help you to better understand Lightfield technology:
The LeiaCamera provides the information that Lightfield displays require in order to show 3D content.
LeiaCamera uses certain Unreal materials to render, which are stored in the Materials > Post Process folder and can be accessed through the Content Browser.
These levels demonstrate how the LeiaCamera works with various game perspectives. Be sure to add the levels to your build settings before building.
