About


We're Dark Dreams, a studio that specializes in bringing videos into VR. We're a small team from various backgrounds that have come together to take existing SFM animations and bring them into VR. On top of our regular crew we work with various artists from the SFM and Rule 34 community on a daily basis.




All characters are fictional and depicted as adults (18 years or older).











Our Patreon takes payment up front as soon as you sign up, and then automatically debits you at the beginning of the month. This is to stop people from signing up, viewing all of the content, then leaving without being charged anything. While I do want as much support as possible, I don't want anyone to be unhappy about being charged twice within a short period. If you want to support me but don't want to be charged twice in a short period, wait until the beginning of the new month!




On top of offering public videos for free, Dark Dreams has rewards for each of the tiers you support us with. Here's a brief explanation for each of our tiers, as well as what said rewards mean.

Daydreamers get access to Remasters, which are exactly what they sound like: remasters of animations we have already brought into VR, but could use some love in the form of added sound, better lighting, new post-processing, or even just extending the animation length. Alternate Camera Angles are new videos created from existing animations from a different point of view. Third Person and Voyeur animations put you into the scene but outside the action, and of course supporting us at the this tier gets you access to all of our animations with the best compression and highest quality. We've also started releasing non-VR versions of our videos as our videos can sometimes end up completely different than the original when we are done with them. This also allows you a better interpretation of what you're about to watch.

Escapists get access to Studio Releases and Exclusives, which are animations you won't find on our public page or anywhere else, whether it's by all of us (Studio Release) or another artist outside the studio or one of us solo(Exclusives). As the name says, we're Dark Dreams. These videos may be a bit more exciting than usual. Other times these videos are not public at the original artists request, but we have come to an agreement with them to bring their art into VR. Escapists also gain access to our Discord server where they can see Previews and Works In Progress and make suggestions or talk with us directly. Our channel is always growing and changing so their may be more features on our Discord at the time of writing this. If you want to get hands on with us and what we do, network with us or other artists, or even just hang out, Discord is the best way to do so. The last reward for supporting us as an Escapist is access to our Model Polls. Models polls are our way of letting you voice your opinion on what you want to see us create in VR with our Studio Exclusives. You choose from a list of ever updating models from your favorite videos games, comics, movies, etc.and we make the rest happen once the poll has concluded. To ensure that your model will have its shot at some action, any models that win are removed from following polls, and the two lowest voted models are removed. 3 new models are added each poll to keep things spicy and interesting.

The last tier with rewards is the Comatose. Comatose get access to an extra vote towards what model they want to see in our next studio exclusive, as well as a vote towards what 3 positions the model will be in with our Position Poll. Comatose also get access to another form of an exclusive video, our Compilations. Compilations consist of taking many videos of one model, and throwing them together in one scene build to create one long scene. They can be as short as 3 videos, or as long as 7+. They are given completely new lighting, fresh post work, as well as extended scenes and even completely exclusive positions you won't find anywhere else. Here is an example: Nyotengu’s Cumpilation Recap at VRPorn.com
Another important reward for Comatose is access to all of our videos through our MEGA directory. Every month we send out a fresh key giving access to our MEGA where you can search for models by name, position, artist, and even by date. This means that those with a keen eye can get access to our animations before anyone else.




$50 is the standard charge for bringing an animation into VR, also known as a conversion. If it's not an artist I normally work with then it's up to you to reach out to the artist and speak with them about bringing their work into VR..Be sure to have a working link to the video you want to see, as well as the artist's name and contact information. The $50 includes any post processing, film editing, added sound, as well as the actual work rendering and setting up the scene, lighting, and fixing models and clipping. 
Understand that to convert video to VR, we cannot just use the completed video file. It's not as simple as just taking the video and running it through a program. We will actually render the video ourselves with different settings, so I'll need the actual .dmx file used in the Source Filmmaker animation, as well as the various models used in the scene. If you commission an artist or ask an artist for an animation, make sure they understand we cannot do it without these files. Most artists are more than willing to work with me once they understand what I am doing, as they will gain extra exposure from their converted work as well as access to the new video.

Animations created from scratch are a standard charge of $100. This rate is for an animation between 2 people, up to 30 seconds in length. This will change depending on scenario and situation and must be discussed.

Remasters or alternate angles of existing Dark Dreams videos are $20, or can be requested for free on our Discord by patrons where they are completed in the order they are received.

All commissions are started immediately on the first Monday after receiving the order, and are completed within a couple of weeks, minimum. They will be released on our Patreon a month after the order is taken.




These are just my personal opinions based on what I use for viewing and working on videos in VR. Bear in mind I am on a PC and have a Vive HMD.

I swear by the VR viewer Whirligig. I don't know the owner and have no affiliation with them, but for me Whirligig is the best viewer along the lines of customization and usability. I have tried all others, but this has tons of features that can take lackluster videos and make them amazing. It's also the smoothest in terms of looping, camera movement, and scaling.

I also use SVP to kick my videos up to a smoother framerate. Although Dark Dreams videos are 60 FPS, SVP is great for watching other videos that just aren't as smooth. It requires a little setup, but is well worth it.

If you're interested in doing what we do or just animation and posters in general, you'll want to check out Source Filmmaker. This is the primary program I use to render our videos, as well as work on them before rendering. If you're more of an advanced user, you should also check out Pragma. It's still a WIP, but it shows promise as being a successor to SFM.

I use Handbrake for transcoding/compression.

I use Virtual Dub for image sequences.

And due to it's many facets, I use Adobe products for any video, sound, and/or photo editing and post processing. I also use a good bit of Red Giant's suite.




If you're interested in working with us, would like to set up a commission, or just have a question, you can reach us at [email protected]
Goals

We'll use the extra support to purchase a secondary computer for rendering animations. This means Dark Dreams will move on to rendering Blender animations AS WELL as SFM animations.
