Edify supports a vast amount of 2D media file types that can be imported, and then viewed through the Edify boards. This includes images, videos, and PDF.
To import your 2D media click From local and then locate the files on your PC in the file browser.
Audio files can also be imported and placed within the scene the same way other content can. However, Instead of being accessed on a board, audio files can be added into a scene by opening the object menu and clicking place and is then represented by a speaker icon.
As it is spatial audio it will dynamically change the volume and position in your headphones depending on the location you choose to place it and your position relative to it.
The quick actions on the audio object give you the option to play, loop, duplicate and delete. Just double click the trigger in VR whilst hovering over the audio icon or right click on desktop.
Images can be imported like any other form of local media by selecting from local, and then selecting the files you want to add. The image file types we currently support are jpg and png within the lesson you can load your images onto Edify boards by going to the object panel, and either selecting the media you want to add, or by adding in a blank board. On the boards themselves, you can open the context menu in VR by selecting the board with a trigger, or left click for desktop and then go to add media.
Edify allows you to view multiple images on one board in a gallery slide view, and you can also zoom into the image using the slider at the bottom of the board.
Edify also allows you to import and view PDFs, add the content to your lesson by clicking From local. Once inside the lesson, go to your object panel and place the PDF directly from there, or by selecting a board and going through the add media button on the context.
As you might expect, PDFs can be scrolled through or flipped through page by page. You can also zoom in or out using your VR controller or a mouse click.
Websites can also be added into Edify and browsed live in session. For this example, I'll be using a Google earth view of Mars. You can grab the web address from your browser, then go to Edify and click Add website in the lesson creation screen, and then give the link a title and paste the link into the URL field.
Upon launching the lesson, you can add the website to a board by opening the object menu and selecting the website, or you can select the board and go to open media in the context menu and locate the website in there.
You can then interact with the website live as if it were in browser, simply by using the pointer at the end of the controller in VR or the cursor in desktop.
Import videos into Edify by clicking "from local" on the lesson creation screen. Then inside the lesson you can select the video from the object panel or by selecting a board and opening the context menu to find Video under Open media.
The video playback gives you control over the speed of the video, the playback bar and video looping.
