Vive support for Unreal engine plugin?

Post by Strupi » Tue Mar 07, 2017 4:13 pm

Hi there!

We'd like to use our Vive and Optitrack system for VR in Unreal engine. Currently your plugin supports Oculus and GearVR, but not Vive.

Is this something to be released anytime soon, or is there a possibility for us to make this work with Vive somehow?

Thanks for your help!

Hi Strupi,

Unfortunately Valve's policy is that they do not allow 3rd party tracking solutions to be integrated with the Vive. They have put significant roadblocks in place to make certain that does not occur. Our plugin currently only works with Oculus VR headsets. If you have any additional questions we're happy to help or you can visit the Unreal plugin wiki @ http://wiki.optitrack.com/index.php?tit ... e_4_Plugin
