Mixed Reality Setup Guide

Mixed Reality Capture is in development. We are continuing to improve the experience, and the set up flow may change.

Mixed Reality Capture places real-world objects in VR. In other words, it mixes images from the real world with the virtual one.

Oculus Mixed Reality Capture enables creators and developers to capture footage of themselves superimposed in the virtual world of supported Oculus content. It helps your audience experience the immersion and magic of VR, even when viewing from a 2D surface.

Check out the MRC Best Practices Guide for more information on how to design and develop your app with Mixed Reality Capture.

How Does Mixed Reality Capture Work?

Mixed Reality Capture uses an external camera, such as a webcam, to capture real-world images, against a green-screen, and combine them with a scene generated by a mixed reality supported VR app to create a single blended scene. As a user interacts with the VR app, their real world movements are matched to their movements in VR.
