This project (my thesis) aims to create an Immersive, Interactive, Virtual environment for Cave no. 23 of Ajanta. A well defined structure for content distribution and interaction mapping has been created to help create VR for all the 29 caves.
The project hopes to serve the users who are categorised as enthusiasts. Below are the people who currently visit the site and the highlighted is the target.
Creating a VR Experience for one of the caves that follows structured distribution of diverse information.
Each type of content would have specific type of interactions and assets linked to them.
Assets would be in the form of Images, Text, 3D models, Animations and audio.
