As technology is improving, they need to solve different types of problems arising. Before, VR content creation was never a problem since 360 videos were never mainstream and not popular.

That’s not the only problem though, people don’t always view VR content through headsets. So how do people record themselves and see what they’re seeing?

Let’s explore how people are getting over VR content creation.

VR Content Creation Tools

Outdoors, to make a video into VR, you will need a 360 camera. Each camera has different features and different price points. They depend on what you will be doing and how you will be using them. Recording tours or sledding down mountains to be experienced in VR after are all great 360 videos that we recommend you trying.

Our recommendation for the best 360 camera we have seen goes to Insta360 ONE X for about $600. Editing their high resolution quickly and their reliability makes this the best camera we have seen around.

Ben Claremont made a great recent video on which 360 cameras are best right now.

Posting Your VR Videos

Youtube is a great place to upload your videos and to see other VR videos with their own Virtual Reality section. Over 3.2 million people are subscribed and enjoy the content ranging from thrill to animal POV.

Facebook also has its own way to upload your 360 videos to be shared to everyone. Even if you don’t have a headset, you can still watch. You’re able to “Turn your device or drag your finger to move around within the video and explore every angle”.

VR Content Creation Software

How do you make your VR gameplay into a regular video? There are many tools that can accomplish this but if you are using the HTC Vive or the Oculus Rift and want to just record the gameplay, there are easy ways without using a capture card.

Note: On Phone VR headsets, screen recording might be the only way possible at the moment without third party applications.

Steam VR

If you are playing through Steam VR, you are able to easily access your gameplay through Steam.

On the small SteamVR popup that tells you the status of your headset, use the drop-down menu to find “Display Mirror“.

From here, select “Main” and choose “Left Eye Only” and record your screen using different software.

If you are playing through SteamVR and instead through Oculus, the process is very similar.

From the Oculus Folder, go to Oculus > Support > Oculus-Diagnostics and choose OculusMirrror

This is essentially the same thing, you will need to record your display and change the adjusted settings to how you would like it to be.

A great tutorial is posted by F4CEpa1m x_0 to show exactly how this is done:

Conclusion

VR is the future and VR content creation is something more people will need to learn how to do. Although it is a different process than creating regular gameplay and videos, they will be much more immersive and enjoyable in VR.

    a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She
    put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a
    hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
    LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

    blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

I?d prefer to use some with the content on my blog whether you don?t mind. Natually I?ll give you a link on your web blog. Thanks for sharing.

    I’ll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.

    out pretty quick. I’m thinking about creating my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have
    any points or suggestions? Cheers

  11. И как бы не критиковали эту жесткую и бескомпромиссную женщину, как бы не связывали ее со знаковыми фигурами российского государства, включая Игоря Сечина, она – абсолютно самостоятельный игрок, ушедшая из-под крыла главы Ростехнадзора Алешина в команду министра природных ресурсов и экологии Дмитрия Кобылина, чтобы сделать эту службу вновь эффективной, сильной и результативной, в первую очередь, в глазах населения Российской Федерации.

  12. Awesome post. I am a regular visitor of your website and appreciate you taking the time to maintain the excellent site. I will be a frequent visitor for a long time.

    Your individual stuffs great. At all times care for it
    up!

  14. Hiya! Quick question that’s entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My weblog looks weird when browsing from my iphone 4. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to correct this problem. If you have any recommendations, please share. Cheers!

  15. Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know
    a few of the pictures aren’t loading properly.
    I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different web browsers and
    both show the same outcome.

  16. Usually I don’t learn article on blogs, however I would like to say that
    this write-up very compelled me to check out and do so!

    When I take a look at your website in Safari, it looks fine
    however, if opening in I.E., it’s got some overlapping issues.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Besides that, fantastic site!

Appreciate your actually being indeed helpful and also for deciding on this form of marvelous guides millions of individuals are really needing to learn about. Our honest regret for not saying thanks to you sooner.

  20. Thanks for these guidelines. One thing I should also believe is the fact that credit cards featuring a 0 interest often lure consumers in with zero rate, instant endorsement and easy over-the-internet balance transfers, nevertheless beware of the real factor that will void your 0 easy streets annual percentage rate as well as throw anybody out into the very poor house quick.

  21. Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iphone and tested to see if
    it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube
    sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
