Custom Trailers

Hello, Display.land Creators!

We’re super excited to announce a new feature in Display.land that will unlock an entirely new level of customization and creativity for you and your captures - custom trailers!


Custom Trailers are Ready! 

You now have full control over how your trailer looks in the feed by setting keyframe paths that the camera view glides smoothly between. You can now overwrite the automatically generated path that sometimes doesn’t show off your capture as well as you’d like it to. You can now create a series of keyframe paths by using the clip feature, and you can always go back and cut/create a new trailer for your captures. There are so many possibilities and opportunities to show off your captures in the way you want to.


How does it work?


For new captures: (once your capture has uploaded and processed)

First, make sure you are up to date with the latest version of the app (0.6.3 or later).


1. Tap your drafted capture from the profile page

2. Tap Edit in the upper right

3. Find the Trailers Tab in the bottom right of the screen (this will open up the custom trailer feature and screen)

4. Notice the feature icons that are available

5. Once you’re happy with your trailer, don’t forget to update your video (you will be prompted/asked in the app) to take it live. You will receive a notification when it’s ready.

6. Pat yourself on the back and be amazed that you just created a 3d video of your favorite space through your phone!

7. Download and share your new trailers with us on social using #ExploreDisplayland! (Optional, but we love seeing your creativity in the wild!)

For existing captures:

1. Select your capture from your profile page

2. Tap Explore

3. Tap Edit

4. Follow steps 3 and on above!

Re-cap!

You can now re-imagine your camera paths, insert different series of keyframes, and get as creative as you want. The possibilities are endless!


Don’t forget to download and share your new custom trailers on your socials and let us know with the hashtag #ExploreDisplayland!

Custom Trailers

It’s been a wild three months.

From graffiti filled streets in Spain to underground bunkers in Sausalito, subway stations in Tokyo to industrial kitchens in Texas, the Display.land community has been blowing our minds every morning by capturing, sharing and exploring each others’ spaces from around the world during our early access period.


To learn more about our story of getting to here and where we’re going, keep reading, but if you just want to try it out yourself, head on over to the iOS or Android stores to download and start creating!

What You Can do Today

Capture any space with the device you already own — from as small as a courtyard to entire city blocks
Edit insanely fast — changes you make to your spaces are rendered and saved in real time.
Instantly share your spaces via web links and videos, or freely export them as 3D models
Explore the world and join a community of global explorers in 50 countries

How We Got Here

We started U6 with the mission to unlock new ways for people to create and connect in the physical spaces they care about, such as our PlaySFMOMA space last year.
To create that experience, we captured the SF MOMA’s physical space in 3D using a commodity smartphone, edited and authored it remotely in a web browser, and allowed hundreds of people to browse and experience the sandbox together in real time from their own devices onsite in AR, and remotely via desktop and webVR browsers.

With today’s release, we’re beginning to put those same tools in everybody’s hands, with the goal of building and improving our roadmap in public with our community.

Where We’re Going: Editing Reality Together

Unlocking a new digital canvas for creativity and shared experiences.
Our goal is to grow Display.land into a destination where people can create, share and explore together in new, immersive and interactive ways.

We believe the best way to achieve this is by releasing often and publicly, supporting our earliest creators, and constantly increasing access to creative tools only previously available to high end gaming, graphics and 3D professionals. In the coming months, you can expect to see regular updates along this path.

Display.land is for those of us who see art in reality. If this sounds like something you’re interested in working on, shoot us a note! We’re working on some of the hardest challenges in computer vision, graphics and multiplayer networking and are hiring actively.

Custom Trailers

Creators! Did you know that you can download any of your captures as a 3D model? 

We currently support OBJ, GLTF, and PLY file formats, which make it possible to use captures from Display.land in Blender, Cinema4D, Unity, Unreal, Maya, and most other popular creative software applications.

To download the 3D mesh, just open one of your captures in a desktop web browser, and click the download button in the upper-right corner of the screen. You’ll need to be logged in to see it.

If you are on iOS, the easiest way to open your capture in a browser is through AirDrop. You can AirDrop yourself the link to the desired capture by opening the Share Menu and pressing “More.” From there, a new menu will open giving you the option to airdrop the link. 

If you are on Android, we find it is easiest to email yourself the link. Open the Share Menu and press “More.” From there, choose email or whatever the best option is for you.

Note: Your download will contain the model for your full capture. Any cropping or 3d object additions will not be represented in your mesh download.
Once your 3D mesh has downloaded, this is where the magic begins. You now have the opportunity to create phenomenal artwork using captured physical reality. Try challenging the mundane by drawing in the absurd.

Or, experiment with contrasting elements. The opportunities are endless and the boundaries are limitless. Check out what our creators have made with Display.land below.
We absolutely love to see what our Creators create using their Display.land meshes. In fact, we have an entire Discord channel dedicated to them! You can find this channel here: https://discord.gg/b2vxQpu.
We can’t wait for you to join and to see how Display.land has inspired you. ✨
