What is Cutting Edge?
Cutting Edge was a student pitch project at the Entertainment Technology Center at Carnegie Mellon University whose goal was to explore how cuts and transitions from games and movies could not only be translated into a 3D space, but also how they could be further integrated into VR storytelling.
By the end of the semester, we created not only a complete 3-5 minute animated, interactive experience for VR that showcased the cuts and transitions we created, but also a development package containing the development tools we made to create our experience.
