VR Software “Headjack” Now Available for Free
“VR Software “Headjack” Now Available for Free It’s now possible to create a fully functional, white-label VR app for exactly $0″
30-day trial period of the full product, like Adobe At Headjack, they used a combination of the above, with the main limitation being a watermark. This meant that Free users could use nearly all features free of charge, but their 360º videos would contain an annoying watermark. The idea behind a watermark is of course that users upgrade their account to remove it.
The people at Headjack realised that a watermark prevented many users from giving the software a serious try, since the app will probably not be used in the field. After all, people are not going to show a watermarked video to a prospective client.
Therefore, the Headjack team decided to make a bold change, and remove the watermark from the Free plans altogether. This means that users can now create a fully functional, white-label VR app for exactly $0!
The main reason for Headjack to remove the watermark, is so users will become intimately familiar with the platform, how it works, come to trust its fast and convenient workflow, and experience its wide variety of use cases. On top of that, having a royal Free plan means more users who can give feedback to bring Headjack to the next level.
In addition to opening up the Free plan, Headjack also made the Cinema feature, which allows users to control multiple VR devices at a distance, available for all plans, including the Free plan (used to be limited to the Studio plan and up). Nick Kraakman, Co-founder of Headjack said this was done in response to multiple requests from clients who wanted to try “Cinema” before upgrading. In the Free plan, Cinema is limited to 1 device, and in the Pro plan to 3 devices. The Studio and Agency plans allow you to control an unlimited amount of devices at a distance.
Headjack also eliminated another hurdle for new users: the dreaded empty lists! When someone created a new Headjack account, there was no example data present in the CMS, so you were faced with empty lists that you needed to fill with your own content before you would be able to truly start testing the platform. The example content, provided by Purple Pill, includes a monoscopic 360º HLS stream, as well as a stereoscopic 360º video with Two Big Ears spatial audio.
