RESOLVED: Parallel Projection in Pitool’s setting needs to be ticked and this will go away.
Hi, I noticed an issue recently in the right lens where at the extreme edge of the lens, certain objects in the scene don’t render until you move your gaze and the object then suddenly appears as if materializing out of nowhere. I noticed this while in SteamVR home. I’m running Pitools version 1.144.
So if you imagine the entirety of the right lens as being 100 degrees, images and objects in the scene appear and render naturally as you would expect them to, up to about 95 degrees of the entire len’s FOV. But at the far edge where the remaining 5 degrees is, certain room objects will materialize and disappear out of nowhere, even though I can still see the background image. For example, if I’m inside the house facing the left wall, I can see the wall and shelves of the house all the way to the edge of the lens. If I’m looking straight at the wall in Steam VR home, the shelves with the personal objects is to the far right. But if there is an object that should be there like the cube or the unicorn on the shelf or the robot, it won’t appear until you rotate your view so that it moves into the 95 degree area of the lens. If it is at the 5 degrees of the peripheral edge, it suddenly disappears. The wall, shelf and background appear normally, but the object just vanishes when it moves into the 5 degree periphery of the lens. Then when you move your gaze slightly to the right the object then suddenly reappears as if materializing out of nowhere.
This can be disorienting when you look around the house as you normally would because objects pop in and materialize and as you turn the other direction, they suddenly disappear. It’s as if there’s a setting in the software that doesn’t trigger the object rendering until it moves into within 95 degrees of the lens FOV. Does anybody else have this problem? The left lens is fine and objects appear normally from the edge all the way towards the center of the lens FOV.
My system specs are:
windows 10 pro version 1809
Gigabyte H370 Aorus Gaming 3 wifi
Can anyone please advise if this is a known bug and if there is a fix for it, or a setting that I need to adjust in pitools or steamVR to correct this?
