Screenshot and Video Capture

Full-resolution, undistorted, single-eye, full-layer-support 2D screenshots and video capture for VR apps are available through the sharing menu. Video capture is also available by configuring localprefs.

Photo and Video Capture Using the Sharing Menu

The sharing menu, available by pressing the Oculus button and selecting Sharing, allows you to take screenshots and record video anywhere in VR.

Record Video starts recording the screen, and will continue recording until one of these events occurs:

  1. User selects Recording from the Sharing menu.
  2. User unmounts the headset.
  3. User navigates to certain apps with protected content.

While the recording is on, users will see a solid red dot in their view as an indicator of recording.

Take Photo takes a screenshot after a countdown of 5 seconds. The user will see a blinking red dot during the countdown as an indicator of a pending photo. The photo will be cancelled if the user transitions to certain apps with protected content during the 5 second countdown.

Captures and recordings are stored locally until you export them.
