VR VIEWING INSTRUCTIONS

There are two methods of viewing the reel in VR:

- Video File Download (recommended)

- Headjack App

 

LUX DIVINUM VR DEMO REEL - Guidelines for playing from VR180 VIDEO FILE
 

Depending on what type of headset you have, there are a variety of options for VR video file playback. If you have a preference, use the player of your choice.

The best result I have obtained is playing the files locally on a Quest2, which is my suggested route if you have one handy. Below, please find instructions for how to load and play the video file on a Windows PC (this may work on Mac too but I have not verified it):

- Download the VR180 video file to your PC from HERE. Don't watch it in Dropbox, hit Download.

- Attach the Quest2 to your PC via USB-C cable
- Stick the Quest on your head and grab a controller. You will see a dialog box asking if you want to let the PC access data on the Quest. Say YES. The Quest2 may also bother you about your Guardian and ask about connecting using Oculus Link. Don't do any of that yet. This method of watching VR video does NOT require Link, it runs on the headset.
- You should now see the Quest as a drive on your PC. Open it up and you'll see subfolders. Copy the video file you have downloaded into the Movies folder. 
- Disconnect the USB-C entirely.
- Finish Guardian setup if required (stationary is fine for the video material), and turn up the sound volume using the Quest2's frontal rocker switch.
- On the Quest's internal main menu, find the TV app amongst the main Apps. Once you are in TV, you will see "Your Media" somewhere in the interface (it keeps changing but you'll find it). You will now have access to the file.
- Unfortunately, the TV app currently ignores embedded metadata, so you have to manually set the correct formatting of the video. The default presentation will be that it shows the image, small, sitting ahead of you. By pulling the trigger you should be able to access a control (currently on the bottom right) which allows you to switch the display of the current video from 2D to 3D 180 (VR180 format).


Enjoy! Seated or standing position is fine. If you are extremely sensitive, stick with seated so you don't feel off balance from any (gentle, don't worry) rendered camera motion.

LUX DIVINUM VR DEMO REEL - Guidelines for playing in the HEADJACK LINK APP

 

If you don't want to deal with file downloading, a fallback method is to watch the video in Headjack Link, an app which is accessible from within the Store of whatever headset you use. (If you have a standalone headset such as a Quest2 you won't need a computer at all.) The quality of playback is inferior, with some steppiness of motion, but you will still get the immersive experience in a package that may be more convenient.

Instructions for Headjack viewing:

- Install Headjack Link on your headset. You should be able to do this through the Store function of your headset (at zero cost). When you search for it in the Store, you need to spell the name precisely or it won't be found. More info on the app can be found here.

- Run Headjack Link and input this PIN code: 500753

- Click the video appropriate to your headset. While the video downloads, enjoy the lobby panorama.

- Once the video is downloaded, hit play.

Enjoy! Seated or standing position is fine. If you are extremely sensitive, stick with seated so you don't feel off balance from any (gentle, don't worry) rendered camera motion.
