question about AR VR platform/source

Post by Klaus Sievers » Mon Aug 29, 2022 1:51 pm

I would like to create an app. Could you recommend an app developer or worker and is there any profit in outsourcing with a company from Ukraine or India? And could you list the parameters to be guided :?:
I have found several companies but still doubt.

Regards,
Klaus

2 points:

1. Why are you looking for a developer to do your work in LiveCode?

2. I can't say anything about India, but as Ukrainians inwith Ukraine are preoccupied by more pressing matters.

2.1. I teach the children of 3 high-level programmers currently in self-imposed exile in Bulgaria who have all categorically stated that the have never heard of LiveCode.

What drew you to LiveCode for VR specifically?

It's a great tool for a great many things, but 3D is not among its core strengths.

Hi there,
Thanks for your answers.
I just try to find reply on different sources including Livecode.
yes, I am keen on 3d, vr, ar techs and planning to develop in this directions. I think, that many people consider these techs promising :idea:

Really?

As far as I understand those areas have been in use for at least 25 years.

The internet itself is just getting started, the computing revolution barely begun.

I don't know if you read much tech news, but nothing is slowing down in AR and VR. Just ramping up.

LiveCode is not the right answer for this, at least not yet - while you can sort of fake it or get some 'proper' 3D scenes set up via webGL it's really not a 3D platform.

You may want to look into Unreal Engine or Unity - both are very capable have free tiers and certainly reasonable price points for paid services like support/training. The complexity however is orders of magnitude greater than LiveCode - but that is what is required for this.

Always use the right tool for the job ;)
