Screenshots

While using Microdose VR, you can trigger a screenshot by pressing ENTER. This takes both a straight-ahead widescreen shot, and a 360 panoramic screenshot with 360 metadata, so you can drag it directly onto Facebook and it will be recognized as a 360 panorama image. Additional ways to trigger a screenshot are available for VR controllers:

Oculus Rift

Hold down both the thumbsticks together for half a second.

HTC Vive

Hold down both the grips & the right shoulder button for half a second.

VJ Mode

VJ Mode optimizes the experience for professional VJs to integrate Microdose VR into a standardized image processing pipeline, with upcoming support for NDI, OSC and MIDI interfaces.

In order to enable VJ Mode, press C on the keyboard. Press Z to disable it.

VJ Mode enables the following features:

  1. Adapts the output resolution to the current screen size,
  2. Hides the wands from the output so they don't appear on the screen, while you can still see them in VR,
  3. Smooths the motion of the camera to produce more consistant movment and a more stable image.

One caveat of VJ Mode is that it requires a substantial amount of GPU power in order to redraw the image for the VJ Mode output, so a GTX 1080 video card or greater is highly reccomended to have a smooth experience with VJ Mode.

NDI Output

Using OBS

If these instructions are not clear, please ask for further support on our Discord in #support.

  1. Install the NDI Plugin for OBS.
  2. Add a display capture for your primary display and enable NDI streaming (Tools > NDI Output Settings).
  3. Capture same display, or create a custom EDID source w/ just a dongle and output the virtual display.
  • *If using a virtual display, just run that one as the primary display as Microdose VR will go fullscreen on the primary display.

Fulldome Mode

Fulldome mode enables Microdose VR to output realtime to standard 180 Fulldome panoramic format. This feature is currently in development and only available to a limited group of users.
