    Hello everyone,

    Over the last few months since the release of WYSIWYG R42, we’ve received numerous questions about which VR systems are supported by our software and the number of questions has been increasing. This is great to see and tells us the VR feature is gaining popularity among our users!

    To answer the question, at the time of this post (i.e. with R42 being our current release, and R43 being beta-tested) we support the HTC VIVE and Oculus Rift VR systems. We have not tested any others, and therefore can neither endorse or recommend them.

    However, in the coming months, we are planning to purchase new VR headsets and controllers that have been released recently (or will be shortly) in order to ultimately expand the list of VR systems compatible with our software. We will announce compatibility with the new hardware as soon as possible once we complete our tests, as follows: if no software changes are required in order to accommodate the new hardware, compatibility will be announced immediately (i.e. for R43 which will be the current version at that time); however, if software changes are required, the earliest we will be able to implement these (and therefore make the new hardware compatible) is with R44, due at the end of the year or early next year. At this time we do not have a “list” of the new VR hardware being considered, but if there is new hardware that you are aware of or have perhaps tried, please feel free to reply here and let everyone know of it.


    Cheers,

    Dany

    Tested R42 + R43 with Valve Index VR headset + remotes.
    Functionality and performance is flawless.
