This alpha release of the CtrlAltStudio Viewer adds positional head tracking support to take advantage of the DK2’s camera. You can look around, over, and under objects by moving your head. This adds significantly to the sense of immersion.
Other changes this release:
- Added a Ctrl+Spacebar command that zeroes Rift sensor orientation and tracking position.
- Added user warnings if Rift HMD or camera not found at start up.
Please note that this alpha is still preliminary: it does not work with direct mode, there is no UI display, and Advanced Lighting Model needs to be turned on.
Usage is the same as the previous alpha. With the DK2 configured in extended mode: use the Windows key + right-arrow to move your viewer window onto the Rift’s display, then Ctrl+Alt+3 makes the window full screen and switches into Rift view. For more details on usage, see the Release Notes.
