Miniature Green Screen for Developing Virtual Production

Unity vs Unreal Engine vs Omniverse Test 1

Omniverse FPS Benchmarking

The results are in. Which is faster, Unreal Engine or Unity, Omniverse?

At OSF we’re fanatical about understanding the virtual user experience. Understanding Frame Rates (FPS) when developing hardware to run interconnected virtual applications is important, as it enables outerface developers to build experiences that won’t ‘rip’ the fabric of the user experience, eat up bandwidth, memory, and kill FPS.
