Can I use Oculus DK 2 with LUMION?
Although Rift and Gear are written, information of DK 2 can not be found. >:(

Hi BABYMETAL

What version of Lumion are you using?

The Oculus  'DK2' version of the Oculus Rift headset (i.e. the so-called development kit version) was replaced by newer consumer versions from Spring 2016 onwards. We recommend using the latest version to get the best possible VR experience.

That said, it is possible that the DK2 is still able to play rendered stills from Lumion for versions v6.3 up to the current v7.5.  However, we no longer support using the DK2.


Heres some information from our release notes:

360 Panoramas via MyLumion are playable as anytime, anywhere, any device, and are not used with VR and headsets.

For VR with headsets, there is the VR (still image) formats for GearVR and Oculus, and also generic format for other phones via Google Cardboard etc that support the equirectangular image format.
