Title: [Answered] HTC Vive?

What about Vive? Can our consultancy use hTC? We really have to export or save the mirrored VR video even without static images so as not to bring the VR kits during presentations outside our office.
Thank you for your replies

Hi benj_CS, welcome.

It's not possible to render 360 degree VR videos in Lumion.

As for VR panoramas based on static images, I should mention that the HTC Vive headset is not officially supported, only Oculus Rift and Samsung GearVR are. Please note that only static panorama renderings will work with those headsets, i.e. you can't move the viewpoint around in a Lumion model/scene in real-time with Oculus Rift and Samsung GearVR headsets.

Regarding the HTC Vive headset, one of our customers mentioned that he got a Lumion VR panorama rendering working with HTC Vive in the Virtual Desktop app (http://store.steampowered.com/app/382110/Virtual_Desktop/). However, that was in May 2016, and I'm unable to confirm if it still works or not as our developers do not know.

Some of our customers have also used the Oculus Rift/GearVR panorama format in a variety of 3rd party software, for example IrisVR (https://www.irisvr.com/) (which, on its web site states it supports HTC Vive), and maybe InsiteVR (https://www.insitevr.com/).

Perhaps the Generic VR Device option (Equirectangular format) in Lumion might also work with HTC Vive.

Apologies for not being able to help you any further than this.

Yes it was clear to me, but i don't get it, Lumion must be providing the Viewpoints support for all technological devices

kindly, work on it
