Re: Creating a movie of my Vive experience

Hi @diggerJohn, the best applications to record Vive screenshots is the open source tool OBS Studio. This video goes over some of the basic settings you should be aware of. When selecting the source choose either the VR application's window or SteamVR's mirror (either left eye or right eye, not both eyes). Some applications work better than others and some have 3rd party modes that are specifically designed for capture. When capturing 1st person view, be very conscious about how quickly you are swinging your head.

Re: Creating a movie of my Vive experience

Before I saw your post I learned about and used Nvidia's GeForce Experience software already on my system.

It worked fine.

Thanks though, I will keep this in mind.
