Multiview#

Introduction#

Some projectors are able to display a stereoscopic view for multiple users, a feature often known as Multiview.

Configuration#

The MiddleVR configuration for multi-view must follow the following rules:

  • One user node per user, with an index starting from 0: User0, User1, User2, ...

  • Each user must have one HeadNode and one HandNode, prefixed with the user's name: User0.HeadNode, User0.HandNode, ...

  • Every screen and camera must be duplicated for each user. The names don't have to be prefixed by the user's name, but it helps clarify the setup.

  • Each user must have a wand, with an index corresponding to the user index: Wand0, Wand1, ...

  • Finally, make sure to give the corresponding 3D glasses and wand to the correct user, or a user might navigate another.

A sample configuration is shipped as MultiView_2.vrx.

Interactions and navigations#

If the configuration is done following the rules above, each user will be able to interact and navigate independently with their wands.

Lock navigations#

By default, if User0 is navigating, all users are following him. You can disable this by pressing Shift-L or by unchecking Lock Multi User Navigations on the MVRWand::MVR Navigation Wand Joystick:

Teleport a user to another user#

By pressing Shift-T all users will be teleported to the same position as User0.
