Hi,

For showing city models from CityEngine in VR, you need to export. CityEngine is a modelling application.

Look into Unity or Unreal... Ok?

Hi,

Yes, you can use CityEngine models in CAVE. You have to go via FXB or Collada files.

Does the cave need another program after exporting to these formats?
