5) Camera Modes

Tools that allow you to capture your best profile.


Now that your avatar is all neat and clean, it's time to set up your virtual camera.

  1. Open up the LIV Avatar interface and venture to the Camera tab - there you'll see all the different camera modes that are currently available.
  2. Play around with them to your hearts content! Below is a brief rundown of the different modes.

Selfie
Imagine a selfie stick that transcends all physical boundaries. This is just that. This is the G.O.A.T. of all selfie sticks. Here's how to operate this marvellous wonder:

  • You can drag the camera around by pointing inside the inner circle enclosing the camera icon and holding Trigger. Release and drop the camera off wherever you want.

  • You can extend/retract the selfie stick by pointing between the inner and outer circle, holding Trigger and moving your hand horizontally.

In its default state, the camera will always be facing you. If you want to control the direction it's filming in, check the "Static camera" box at the bottom of the interface, which will connect a green "X" to the camera through a dotted line. The X determines where the camera is faced and is movable.

Third Person
The camera films your view from a third person perspective. Tweak settings to tailor fit your framing.

First Person (Enhanced FPV)
The camera films your HMD view. It's basically the same as streaming the SteamVR mirror, except with extra settings that make for a more pleasant viewing experience (smoothing, extra FoV).

Gamepad
Connect an Xbox controller to your PC and control the camera using a gamepad. This allows you to fly around with the camera in free-form mode, giving you epic control over cinematography and framing.
