Medium’s community site

Since Medium officially launched on Tuesday, we’ve seen some amazing Medium creations on social media, reddit, and our forums - we’re so thrilled to be connecting the world with art.

Today we’re excited to announce the soft launch of Medium’s companion community site. There’s now a place to save and share sculptures, stamps, screenshots, and in-VR recordings with your friends and other artists.

We set out out to become a home for creativity in VR: a place where you can  explore new ways of expression, share art, and collaborate with others in ways you never thought possible.

Sharing

There are two main ways to share from inside Medium.

  1. Upload the sculpt you are currently working on from the “Share” button in the Home Screen (next to “Export”)

  2. You can look at your Assets Browser(The right hand panel in the Home Screen) to view your personal stamps, screenshots, and recordings. When you select an individual asset, you will reach a menu with which you can Share and Name that asset. (Please note - you’re unable to share sculpts through the Asset Browser, only the Share button).

Sharing will bring up your default browser that pops up behind Medium, so you can continue creating in Medium while uploading. Once uploaded, you can change the description of the asset, choose whether it’s public or private, and attach a Creative Commons license to it (more on Creative Commons licenses on the http://oculus.com/medium/guidelines Guidelines page). Everything you upload and make public will be on your personal Artist Gallery page, where a friend or collaborator will be able to download your creations straight into Medium as well as into high-resolution OBJ’s.

Right now, to share assets with each other, you must share Gallery URL’s with each other. (It’s also a good idea to bookmark your Artist Gallery URL for yourself!). Discoverability is a work in progress, but we’ll get there soon!

Yeah, why USA only?? 

If you want the community to grow, don't lock out users!

Canadian user here. Have to say I'm excited, but it seems very odd that you are choosing to lock it to US only at this point.

Great idea! Hopefully you can create a great platform for sharing and viewing.

However I'm not in the US so can't share anything... a bit of a strange choice, I don't know why this would need to be regional locked for any reason?

At a guess - server load balancing. Easier to deal with any teething issues with a limited rollout. This is Facebook hardware we're talking about. All held together with duct-tape and fridge magnets 😄

Just published to the Medium community site, but the sculpt is private? Apparently I am not in the US, but I am? I don't get it.
