Introducing Motion Smoothing
Motion Smoothing, the all-new setting in Varjo Base 3.8, allows a smoother visual experience than ever before in high-end VR and XR experiences with significant movement involved.
Building on the concept of motion reprojection, Varjo’s ‘Motion Smoothing’ setting intelligently predicts upcoming motion and inserts additional frames in real-time, replicating a high frame rate experience in graphically intense software such as Microsoft Flight Simulator.
Released as a Beta version, this new setting will evolve with feedback to ensure the latest generation of Varjo headsets can provide seamless, true-to-life experiences, beyond the limitations of today’s supporting hardware. To give your input on the future of this exciting new addition, head over to the Varjo Discord.
Improved footage capture and sharing capabilities
Sharing is caring, and with Varjo Base 3.8, it is now easier than ever to record and share videos and images from the VR and XR content you experience through Varjo headsets.
Thanks to adjustments on the cropping of the recorded video feed, and the option to include the Varjo logo and model name as a watermark, exported content is now instantly ready to share online or with colleagues.
New options in Varjo Reality Cloud
Varjo Reality Cloud, the world’s first remote rendering service that allows for immersive streaming up to human eye resolution VR and XR content, now has additional options for handling the upload, storage and usage of assets made with Unity, Unreal, or Autodesk VRED 3D models.
