Hi elephant lovers and foot fetishists,
How THE FUCK, (and I stress the “THE FUCK” part), are we meant to record the video feed of the RIFT DK2?
I have failed miserably with so many different set-ups and even using recording devices, etc. Yes I ended up using FRAPS, which is not pretty and I am not proud of. And I got framerate drop etc… BUT is it the only way? Please note I haven’t tried NVIDIA SHADOWPLAY thing… Question regarding this at the end…
Here is what I tried:
-Recording on device using AVERMEDIA LIVE GAMER PORTABLE: plug Pc output into device hdmi input and plug rift in the device hdmi output, kinda like a pass-throuhg, and that did work on DK1. HOWEVER it fails on DK2 you just get Rift light blinking blue/orange… Whether you select record on pc mode or record on sd-card mode, STILL it’s doesn’t work.
-Using Pc monitor: since Rift dk2 only seems to work in “extended display” mode, this doesn’t work, I can’t get image on pc monitor as it only appears inside the RIFT. “duplicate” monitor pc settings does not work, you get some weird portrait aspect ratio with screen flipped 90 degrees: DOES NOT WORK
-Using TV as pass-through: Someone told me you can pass through HDMI on new tv kinda input/output HDMI, someone really insisted this is the way. I bought new 500 quid tv last week, tried every hdmi plugging combination under the sun. NONE WORKS.
-Using FRAPS or some other shitty recording software: Yeah that works and also slows your machine making your framerate under the required/recommended 75fps framerate.
Has anyone got experience of using NIVIDIA SHADOWPLAY screengrabbing thing? Does it perform well? Could this be the only solution?
Otherwise has anyone managed to record the RFIT DK2 and if so HOW?
everyoneishappy explained how he had to re render the whole thing in a “simplified” oculus render window (without picture bend etc) And then basically record that one on monitor I suppose. As much as this may work we agree it’s just a hack and requires more resources, any solutions guys/girls/orang-outangs?
I am fucking baffled, my dear sirs.
