To develop VR is not easy because your team must prepare for 3 important things:

  • Hardware
  • Software
  • Programming

1.1. Hardware

This part is the first step of business for VR development, so your business cannot ignore some like:

VR development PC

PC is a crucial part of VR content development, but your team needs to consider kinds of PCs as not all of them are good for VR development projects.

When going into the VR development project, it requires a best PC to process image, video with larger specifications than types of PCs like gaming, or regular ones.

Specifications will rely on what VR development type you will conduct, or kind of VR contents you build. But there some general requirements for specifications that you must know:

  • CPU must be Core i7 or at least Core i5, this just can process VR development. 
  •  Your team must get the memory of PC that minimizes 16GB or 32GB if you include room.
  • Storage of PC should be SSD instead of HDD.
  • Drive C gains from 240GB – 480GB or even more.

Furthermore, if your business kicks off the VR game development, the PC is different in this situation:

  • It has the ability to produce 360° 3DCG on the left and right screen for description.
  • Images of VR games are processed by a heavy load.
  • Graphics Processing Unit must have high-performance.

Also, we recommend some gaming graphics card:

  • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 20XX including 2080 Ti, 2070, 2060, which cost from $500.
  • AMD is an another choice, you can consider Radeon VII, RX Vega/5XX series such as 580, 570, 560, and the price of each one is from $200

In general, to develop VR content demands high-performance PCs with high specifications, and the fee at least business pays for PCs that are 100,000 JPY or even more.

And we see that PCs desktop is the best choice to develop VR in terms of battery, heat diffusion, and budget.

If your business wants VR development works, software will be the main part.

There are 2 platforms for VR software development:

  • Unity VR development
  • UNREAL ENGINE VR development

VR development Unity 

The Unity software gets famous as a game engine, and controlled by Unity Technologies company. And this is usually applied in smartphone, applications, and VR development.

For this software, businesses can generate actions without using any programming languages.

There are some prominent supplies that businesses can use in Unity software:

  • 3D models
  • Animations
  • Sound effects

Any programmers can get these functions from the store, and the company also provides the personal package for free to individuals.

To be honest, this software is suitable for newbies who would like to conduct VR development.

UNREAL ENGINE VR development 

The software is a programming tool established by Epic Games, which is working in different solutions including PC games, game programming, real graphics, and behavior as well.

We can say that this software is high-performance gaming software, and your business can make use of all functions on this without payment.

However, if your business develops games for selling, and gets more $3000 each quarter, the Epic Games will collect an extra 5% royalty from business.

 1.3 Programming

For programming, we also introduce the common ones in the IT market that they use along with Unity and Unreal Engine for VR development or other products.

  • C# with Unity – VR development language: when you want to develop special or advanced products, you can use programming language like C# for the newest versions. And you cannot use languages such as Boo and JavaScript for this current version.
  • Programming language For UNREAL ENGINE, this allows people to use C++, or BluePrint.

C# with Unity – VR development language 

C# is a programming language managed by Microsoft Corp.,. This language is available for Web services, Smartphone apps.

The information of C# is covered on the Internet, so everyone can get knowledge of this language with ease.

Programming language For UNREAL ENGINE

C++ is known as an updated version of C, and this has been applied in different platforms from VR development, gaming, and more.

BluePrint is a different type from general languages, when using BluePrint, programmers can make use of nodes that are linked through lines without coding in text.

In general, most designers will choose BluePrint to generate the gorgeous image, and technicians will program the game in C++.
