User Dung3onlord recently posted an interesting video on Reddit in which he demonstrates how you can insert 3D models from Google Maps into your XR project.
In the video, we can see how the user “takes” 3D models of familiar places from the toolbar and literally throws them out the window, after which these models are displayed in the virtual world.
The video also serves as a short tutorial in which the user shows us how using the RenderDoc program we can use 3D models from Google Maps to display them in the virtual world.
You can watch the full tutorial on YouTube.
What is RenderDoc?
RenderDoc is a free debugger (a program that serves to test and correct bugs in other programs) that serves to analyze individual frames created using various other programs, such as video games. The program itself is open source, which means that the code of this program is publicly available for modification and distribution. The development of the program takes place on github, and the beneficiaries of the program participate in it.
RenderDoc puts a big focus on simplicity. The program is affordable and designed to be as accessible and simple as possible to understand.
