This guide describes the process to configure Mixed Reality Capture on your Oculus Quest.

Before You Begin

Before any calibrations, configuration, or implementation, you need to acquire a PC and camera that meet the performance requirements of mixed reality capture. Review the Device and System Configuration page for hardware and device specifications required for Mixed Reality Capture. You will also need a wireless router that supports 5Ghz networks.

Review the guidelines for creating a safe use environment in the Health and Safety warnings located at https://www.oculus.com/legal/health-and-safety-warnings/.

You’ll also need an app that supports Mixed Reality Capture. See the Supported Apps page for the current list of supported apps.

If you’re looking to add Mixed Reality Capture to your own app, see the Unity - Mixed Reality Capture, Unreal - Mixed Reality Capture, or Native - Mixed Reality Capture pages for more information.

Finally, download the MRC Tools for Oculus Quest.

Getting Started

There are two steps to capturing mixed reality capture scenes. Setting up your Oculus Quest and external camera, and compositing the final scene in Open Broadcaster Software.

Setup

Launch the Mixed Reality Capture Tool on your PC to start the camera calibration process. Follow the steps in the tool to install and run the MRC Tools for Oculus Quest on your Quest and use it to connect to your PC.

Then, you’ll calibrate your external camera to capture the real world images. You can learn more on the Camera Calibration page.

Compositing

Once you’ve finished the setup and configuration, you can launch a mixed reality capture capable app and composite the final scene together in OBS using the Oculus Mixed Reality plugin. If you have not previously installed OBS, please do so now. Please review the Composite the Scene page for information about this process.
