Virtual Reality & Augmented Reality

This guide provides an introduction to the Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality services provided by McGill Library, as well as other resources to help explore the technology.

VR Creation

The following software is available for free, and a great way to get started with creating in mixed reality!

Unity 3D - A cross-platform game engine that can be used to develop 3D games and simulations. Free download for beginners and students. Learn more, and watch tutorials on their website.

Unreal Engine - A game engine initially developed for first-person shooter games, now allows you to build VR environments for a variety of hardware. You can even use their software in VR, so you’re able to build VR in VR. Free download, and tutorials/documentation available at their website.
