>A concert is a live music performance in front of an audience. The performance may be by a single musician, sometimes then called a recital, or by a musical ensemble, such as an orchestra, choir, or band. Concerts are held in a wide variety and size of settings, from private houses and small nightclubs, dedicated concert halls, amphitheatres and parks, to large multipurpose buildings, such as arenas and stadiums.

They went with the AR solution as a response to tightened Covid restrictions to public gatherings, and it turned out to be pretty great. AR has applications beyond what VR can do and is much more likely to penetrate the mainstream as headsets mature, so if they come up with a way to perfect 3D tracking in smaller scale/in home environments, AR could easily be the future of vtubing in general.

>> No.7322733

>I have no idea what you mean by 'applications beyond VR' in the context of vtubers though
The audience perspective. The ideal AR headset lets you remain more aware of your surroundings and anchor the performer into whatever space you are in. You could be looking at an anime girl dancing in your living room, or a meadow somewhere while you have a picnic. You could be watching an AR vtuber game literally over their shoulder. If there are 3D props, such as a rendered stage, you could opt to display them as well. The content is the same, but the experience could be user-dependent.

A VR headset doesn't provide you the same kind of mobility and flexibility. In a general sense, the "applications beyond VR" line refers to our current state of AR/VR tech and AR having the ability to mesh with the real world in real time, thus being more marketable to the general population, and having more appeal in the corporate world as a result.

With VR you need full VR equipment. Which even with a lighter form of it, is still a full headset that takes you out of the world. Most people aren't wanting to be immersed 100% in only 1 thing at a time these days, AR is where that would shine.

Did you actually watch both concerts? I remember several times watching the Kizuna AI one that it looked very much like she wasn't actually touching the stage at all when they showed full body. I didn't really notice that same effect at all with the Nijisanji concert they seemed solidly on the ground. It was the same with the big concert recently that the TV company did as well the models there looked firmly planted to the space and I noticed it was better done than the Kizuna AI one.

Having to fit the thing you're watching into the real world is also the big downside of AR. Like I said, you're not going to fit a concert stage in your living room at 1:1 scale. You'll have to shrink it or project it onto a virtual screen or some other kludge that compromises the experience.

Of course its hard, but that's why they need someone to work on it.
In concept its not that bad though. Especially if you can work it something like how projects work, so as long as you have some decent sized space you can set it up and take it down as needed. It also opens it up for allowing it to be displayed in public like billboards or ads, so rather than a TV you can actually have a full-sized concert and clips out in public just on the side of a building or such.
Personally my AR desire would be able to set up walls in my house as triggers and being able to interact with that as a large scale monitor as needed. It would be much easier to translate that to a VR "room" as well rather than actually using VR.

Personally I don't think we'll see it for another decade at least, but someone needs to put in the investment to make it happen first.

>You're not going to fit a 1:1 scale stage concert in your living room
But you could fit one on a meadow. Ideally it would be a user option. Same goes for the Apex example, just do what you want. Position Kuzuha on your living room couch, blow up an 80" screen of his gameplay on the wall, sit next to him and crack open a cold one. With some hassle you could do something similar in VR as well, but--
>it's not just an "upgrade" over VR
Ultimately it would be. A sufficiently advanced AR headset could also output visuals complex and encompassing enough to allow it to double as a VR headset when needed. VR headsets as we understand them right now are a bit of a technological dead-end, anyway. Positional tracking aside, you just have a screen plastered to your face. Combination AR/VR is where the tech is currently headed, at least until BCIs, full dive VR etc. are cracked much later (and society somehow hasn't collapsed on itself yet).

Hypothetical future tech, granted, but I'm sure you recognize the limitations of vtubing today, how little mobility and interactivity L2D models have, how studio space limits 3D shows, and how companies would be researching ways to push beyond.

Yeah at some point the distinction between AR and VR becomes sort of academic. Microsoft's "mixed reality" system already does the hybrid AR/VR thing pretty respectably.
What I mean is if you're watching something like a concert at home, you're going to have a better time watching it in fully immersive VR. If it's just one person standing there singing or playing an instrument, you could render that in your living room in AR no problem. Each presentation is suited to different scopes of content and provides a different experience.

All the object tracking they've been doing lately in their streams has been neat. The jump rope was particularly impressive to me, but all the fuckery with chairs and such is cool too.

The home solution basically relies on a single infrared sensor in an iPhone camera to read depth information. It's jumpy and glitchy because the environments it's used in are often noisy, and there are gaps in the motion data (as in, limbs going off-frame) the app can't really interpolate. It's not bad for what it is, though. The finger tracking is especially neat.

For me, I feel like their strategy of acquiring talent more selectively and with more scrutiny lends itself to a more cohesive talent pool that can draw audiences in to all of them, hence why their subs are already in the 100ks even before they debut.

Marketing-wise, they've played the YT algo well when they started blowing up, and starting their company as a "virtual idol" group first before pivoting to "virtual entertainment" was good for them in grounding who they were initially. Currently, their tie-in strategy like Nissin and Taco Bell have started putting their talent in the mainstream, piggybacking off major brands in order to reach a larger audience.

I didn't really say it was from previous identities, but rather similar from what you said, since their talent pool is smaller and sorted into gens (which are just 3-5 members per gen), it's easier for fans to follow all of them and see the progression in how their talent pool grows, and to bandwagon in once new ones arrive.

So the reason for not subscribing for all niji's is being physically difficult to click through all subscribe buttons or it's because you can't possibly follow all of them?

If it's first then you are quite lazy.
If it's second then you are lying, because when agency has more than 5 vtubers, it becomes impossible to completely follow all of them, and you are forced to follow them partially. Both Holo and Niji already past that point, so it's strange for people to say that they follow entire hololive, but cannot follow entire nijisanji.

when I started following vtuber stuff, it was around holo gen 4 (so there were around 30 of them at the time), so it was easy to go to the wiki and see what they were like one by one, five per gen, etc. niji at that point was nearing 100 members, and it didn't help that I found out about them later, after finding out about holo. I decided to just follow the ones that i felt interested in instead, like Ange, Ars, and Tamaki.

>nearing 100 members
I can't remember if it was nearing 100 or if it was already slightly past that, but I recall it was around 3-4x larger than hololive's members

Let's try putting the Virtual and Real closer together instead of putting one in a pedestal by worshipping them with tribalism or numbers.

>Holo has better talent
I don't think that's quite true, or rather, that it's a bit of a difficult comparison. Note that I'm not a very dedicated follower of either company/brand, and aren't trying to incite tribalism with this.

Both companies obviously try to hire good entertainers. The difference is in how they hire; Hololive seems to want career vtubers specifically, and takes special care to comb through the applicants, narrowing their hires down to only the proven top few. Nijisanji, while also seeking out high quality hires, likes to take chances on unproven yet promising applicants for some of their auditions, and lets them work part-time or even just as a hobby. Their waves are thus larger, and they seem quite comfortable with letting the newbies grow into the job over time. I'd argue that there's just as much raw talent among the top ranks of both companies (and I think the success of cross-company groups like NASS are evidence of this), but the larger overall amount and the types of vtubers Nijisanji employs dilute that image, especially in the eyes of those who don't follow the company closely.

Mind you that I don't believe most vtubers of any company or description are exactly brimming with talent, otherwise they'd be working to build careers elsewhere in the entertainment industry. It's because they're oddballs, social outcasts, familiarly flawed people, that we feel drawn to them and their personalities. We end up (over)valuing their talent, even when it's not truly what draws us to them.

Something I understand is that people feel overwhelmed by Nijisanji's roster. The idea is that you're not supposed to follow them all, but obviously it's going to be harder to find the right one for you when there's so many to wade through, and some of the hidden gems you may stumble upon stream irregularly. Hololive, especially in the west, has a massive edge in accessibility in this, and several other, regards.

TL;DR both company bretty gud imo
