Will there be a version of Medium on for Quest?


We're not yet planning to have Medium on Oculus Quest. There's a few different reasons for that but the biggest one is this: Medium is a processing heavy application that, built as is, requires the power and memory of a PC. Maybe in the future, but right now we’re working on improving Medium for workflow and pipeline.

Medium 2.3.1 Release Notes

bjgk2vawhapd.jpeg

Lighting and Materials:

  • Fog is now a world setting that you can customize: Set your color, strength, min/max height, and min/max distance. 

  • You can save your selected material settings and restore/copy to other layer materials by - Check out the Save and Load buttons in the material settings panel.


Memory and Performance:

  • Medium should use ½ to ⅓ as much GPU VRAM as previous version. We have changed Medium’s core data structures and how it handles GPU memory. Much larger/higher resolution sculpts should now be possible.

  • Improved memory and performance by replacing sparse textures with voxel blocks.

  • Improved dynamic ambient occlusion, leading towards less self-occlusion artifacts.

  • Layer limit is now 128. 


Fixes:

  • Fixed crash on latest AMD drivers when trying to import or create a custom stamp.

  • Ground planes now have lines to indicate world origin and to alleviate motion sickness with more visual grounding.

  • Scrollbar now is visually correct - muted when not highlighted, brighter when highlighted.

  • Greek and Romanian symbols work perfectly in Medium! 

  • Fixed a manipulation issue that would cause the sculpt to snap to a super large size and far away when scaling a small layer.

  • Imported stamp previews no longer persist on tool hand after switching away from them.

  • Directory will no longer delete unintentionally during an fbx export.

  • File exports in fbx/obj will no longer delete the corresponding file of a different extension.

  • Various crash fixes.

With the latest update 2.3.1 I'm getting terrible performance and cannot add clay smoothly. It lags and create straight lines, really frustrating, making the app unusable.

I have a 1660ti, 16gb of Ram, W10, plenty of free space.

I didn’t have any issues with the previous version

@Buhonero, man! That's weird. We did change the starting resolution, but that was back in 2.3. Possible you can post a video of your problems? We're intrigued at what's going on with your system.

@jessicazeta sure, here's a video of the problem:


Looking forward to a solution as I was enjoying a lot the app.

Any chance you're playing spotify when using medium? I had HORRIBLE performance issues, i finally found out spotify in my web browser was causing it?
