Add External Stylesheets/Pens

Any URL's added here will be added as <link>s in order, and before the CSS in the editor. If you link to another Pen, it will include the CSS from that Pen. If the preprocessor matches, it will attempt to combine them before processing.

+ add another resource

You're using npm packages, so we've auto-selected Babel for you here, which we require to process imports and make it all work. If you need to use a different JavaScript preprocessor, remove the packages in the npm tab.

Add External Scripts/Pens

Any URL's added here will be added as <script>s in order, and run before the JavaScript in the editor. You can use the URL of any other Pen and it will include the JavaScript from that Pen.

Use npm Packages

We can make npm packages available for you to use in your JavaScript. We use webpack to prepare them and make them available to import. We'll also process your JavaScript with Babel.

⚠️ This feature can only be used by logged in users.

    // CODE HERE
		// ZIM VR
		// http://zimjs.com/vr.html
		// Takes content and displays it in left and right channels with position shift to look 3D.
		// This example is to be viewed in a VR headset that uses a mobile phone.
		// Have a good read over the docs at http://zimjs.com/code/docs.html?item=vr
		// On the PC, the content can be swiped for testing
		// but the visual effect is obviously not the same.
		// You can turn on the VR adjuster to help you bring the images closer together
		// so that you can use the cross-eyed technique to get a 3D effect.

		// PROPORTION - not really part of VR - just using to set depths and scales to circles
		// we will have six circles indexed 0 - 5
		// the 0 circle is the big orange one and the 5 circle is the small dark grey one
		// 0 circle will animate to 20 depth which is positive coming out of the screen (which is at 0)
		// 5 circle will animate to 5 depth so much less out of the screen
		// we will also animate the scale up to 2.1 for the outer circle and 1.2 for the inner circle
		// the rest of the circles animate proportionally between these bounds for both depth and scale
		// Proportion lets us do this without thinking:
		// baseMin, baseMax, targetMin, targetMax, factor, targetRound
   	const depth = new Proportion(0, 5, 20, 5);
   	const size = new Proportion(0, 5, 2.1, 1.2);

    // Prepare content
		// put inside one container with everything as if there is no depth shifting
		// keep content regX at 0 - which is the default - so do not centerReg() for instance
   	const content = new Container(stageW/2, stageH); // although it is okay to go outside these bounds
		// outer radius and true means to make the circles individual Circle objects rather than one shape
		// makeCircles is just a little function ZIM added for promotional purposes 
		// the circles are also used to show broken images ;-)
   	const circles = frame.makeCircles(50, true) 
    const label = new Label({
        text:"ZIM VIRTUAL REALITY",
        .centerReg(content, 0)
        .pos(null, stageH*.2)
        .dep(0); // screen depth

    // loop through the circles and give them depths
    // we can start them off in 3D already by giving them different starting depths
    // but we will start them at 0 and animate their depths
    loop(circles, function(circle, i, total) {
        // circle.dep((total-i)*3);

    // content, angle, distance, parallax, parallaxAngle, damp, parallaxDamp, 
		// startAngle, negativeParallax, boundaryMarkers, swiper, holder
    var vr = new VR({

    // optionally animate the circles - the text is child 0
    loop(vr.contentLeft.getChildAt(1), animateCircle);
    loop(vr.contentRight.getChildAt(1), animateCircle);

            obj:{depth:depth.convert(i), scale:size.convert(i)},

🕑 One or more of the npm packages you are using needs to be built. You're the first person to ever need it! We're building it right now and your preview will start updating again when it's ready.
