VR supported build?

Hi, I'm new to Vortex studio and trying to evaluate for VR. I downloaded and installed this build, but I don't find the HeadMountedDisplay extension. Before I download a different build, just want confirmation that I'm not missing something. 


THanks,

John

Hi John,


As mentioned in the blog (www.cm-labs.com/blog/2017/11/10/vortex-studio-now-vr-enabled-simple-change-display-config-file/), this feature was introduced in version 2017c (build 2017.4.0.20).


The version you currently have is 2017b.

You can download 2017c from www.cm-labs.com/downloads/


Also, please note the HeadMountedDisplay extension is available via the Setup document type in the Editor.

Thanks Silvain,


I installed the build... I'm happy to go read, but how does the setup work, where do I save the setup document? and how do I enable the HMD from my mechanism? Or perhaps I need a scene... Just getting started, sorry for the nooby questions.


JOhn

I would recommend searching for "Setup" in our documentation: www.cm-labs.com/documentation


And more precisely, reading the following ones at the minimum:


Good luck!
