Sessions also confirmed today for Develop:VR:

Funding Question Time
A panel consisting of Martin de Ronde, creative director at Force Field VR, Dave Ranyard, founder of Dream Reality Interactive, Thomas Gere from Realities Centre and chaired by Ella Romanos, founder of Rocket Lolly Games will discuss their experiences of getting their latest projects funder, the new trends in funding and how to think outside the box on making your next funding round a success.

VR and Moral Panic
New forms of media can sometimes trigger sensationalised fear and worry from the mass media and then, the public – a phenomena that sociologists describe as ‘moral panic’. VR is the perfect moral panic case study. Catherine Allen, VR Curator and Producer will demonstrate how the knowledge of a new technology’s very existence can bring out society’s deep down hopes and fears about humanity’s future.

      Is it possible to asynchronously create a Texture2D using DirectX11?
      I have a native Unity plugin that downloads 8K textures from a server and displays them to the user for a VR application. This works well, but there's a large frame drop when calling CreateTexture2D. To remedy this, I've tried creating a separate thread that creates the texture, but the frame drop is still present.
      Is there anything else that I could do to prevent that frame drop from occuring?
