System Configurations

Successful mixed reality capture requires a more performant system than is required by regular VR. This page contains suggestions for mixed reality capture PC performance and system configurations.

General Performance Recommendations

There isn’t a system or collection of components that is required to capture mixed reality content. However, using a system with a high-performance motherboard with at least 16gb of RAM, SSDs for storage space, and a GTX 1080 or higher, is a good starting point.

Hardware Requirements

You’ll need the following hardware for Mixed Reality Capture on Oculus Rift and Rift S. Examples provided are hardware that has been previously used by Oculus in developing this feature. Your results may vary.

  • Performant PC
  • USB or HDMI Camera (like GoPro Hero 6 Black)
  • Capture card (like the Elgato HD60S or HD60Pro)
  • Oculus Rift or Rift S

HMD Setup

To prepare your devices for mixed reality, you’ll need to cover the proximity sensor on the HMD. The proximity sensor is located above and between the lenses of your headset.

If you’re using an Oculus Rift S in a location for the first time, complete the Guardian setup now. Be sure to find a location that allows you to create a sufficiently large Guardian to not interrupt your mixed reality recording.
