Welcome to Unreal
This page describes how you can set up and use the Unreal development environment for the Varjo VR-1. Please make sure you have read Difference between SteamVR™ and Varjo Base before beginning development.
To be able to set-up the Unreal environment you need the following setup:
- Make sure your computer meets system requirements
- Varjo software
- SteamVR installation
- Unreal Engine 4.21
- Microsoft Visual Studio 2017 (make sure you have latest available version)
- Varjo VR-1 headset (optional)
This section will guide you through getting the Unreal set up and the first example scene running in the VR-1.
In order improve performance in your project, it is recommended to use the Varjo Unreal engine version for your project. If you prefer using the mainline engine that also enables the Unreal Studio, you can follow “Using Varjo Plugin for Unreal” guide. Please note that, the Unreal Plugin in unexperienced hands might result in application performance issues.
