How Does it Feel And How to Setup

oculus rift movies

Trust me on this one, Oculus Rift gives you a much better 3D experience than theaters and cinemas do. Even home theaters do not live up to the level of 3D quality. Now you can argue about the resolution, but since VR head-mounted displays will get better and better each year, I don’t think it’s going to be a problem for the long-term.

What Oculus Rift really takes advantage of is scale. No other device can give you this kind of experience. It’s as if you are truly there, in full size. The feeling of elephant coming closer to you, huge skyscrapers towering over you, and all the other scaled objects can give you shivers, literally. And if to add the real 3D, no layer bull****, I start to believe that Oculus Rift movies, or soon-to-be-called VR movies will conquer the world of cinema. Why would you buy an expensive flat screen TV, why would you go to cinemas? Well, actually I would go just because it’s a bit louder there, and going to cinema with friends makes more sense. But other than that, I really don’t see any other advantages.

If you also want to experience at least the 3D movies mentioned above, first you need to do is download:

  • LiveViewRift (you can try other VR movie programs).
  • Have Rift in extended mode.
  • Start LiveViewRift.
  • Press “+” and type the name of the movie you are going to watch.
  • In the Layers section set Current Layer to layer 1 (Background). Set Type to Video. If there are any other Layers delete them.
  • Drag the video file to the Video-Path/Url window.
  • Press “test” in Cam-Setup to see if the video actually plays and it is in the format you think it is in.
  • In the Environment Section set Scene = Black and check the Scene Placement
  • Check Start in Full Screen, Pacific Full Screen, Show Hud on Start Up. Uncheck Show H&S Warning.
  • Click Start and put on HMD. You should see the HUD. Look straight ahead with the head level.


I will post a more detailed setup guide soon, as well as update regularly my list of all the Oculus Rift movies and 3D movies that work well with VR devices.
