I don't quite understand what is going on. I've tried to post this message several times on this sub-forum and it keeps getting deleted. Perhaps I posted this message to the wrong place? If so, let me know. It does not appear that my message has been moved, but instead, it appears as though my post was simply deleted. I am using Vive Wave SDK, and using the Vive Focus, and I have a legitimate question.
Over the past week I've been experimenting with the Vive Focus.
I've been experimenting with various versions of my app. I've stripped the app down to its most essential elements.
However, I face a significant problem which I cannot solve. There appears to be a significant judder when I pan my head from side to side if I try to attempt anything of significant complexity within my scene.
I have tested various versions of various scenes by eliminated everything from the scene except one model.
Using the profiler I see nothing unusual and everything is well within the suggested limits outlined in the case study provided by 2 Bears Studio on every scene I experiment with.
Simple, unanimated 3D objects such as the default Unity 3D models seem to work well.
If I try to deploy more complex objects which show on Unity's game view to be anywhere from 5k to 10k tris, I begin to experience judder if I pan my head from side to side.
If I am connected to the PC trying while the profiler is on the judder appears to be worse.
Animating an object make the judder worse.
Moving my head faster makes the judder worse.
If I am not connected to the PC and viewing simpler objects which are not animated the judder appears to disappear.
Here are the specifications of the various software tools I'm using:
Developer Kit Vive Focus Updated to 1.92.1400.2
Wave SDK Version is 2.1.8
Unity Version 2018.1.9f1 Personal
Vive Input Utility v.1.10.2

Thank you for your reply.
Ok. So is this something I can adjust in Unity to mitigate the issue?
If not, is there a per object limit or something that you might suggest I shoot for in terms of complexity whether it's polygons or materials/shaders?
I noticed after replaying a lot of the free apps and games that every app experiences some judder to a greater or lesser extent.

The judder becomes noticeable at 500 to 1000 tris on a single mesh, with or without animation.
I will see it judder a tiny bit when viewing a mesh with 150 tris.
I put a little FPS monitoring code into the app to display FPS on a canvas as I use the Vive Focus.
In every case, no matter which mesh I'm using, my frames per second hovers consistently at just under 75, usually around 74.8, and, again, this is on the Vive Focus.

We will have the judder issue fixed on the VIU github - thanks for your patience!
This was introduced in a previous version (1.10.1) and the fix is already included in the current version.
