Mixed Reality is super important to VR!
Showing virtual reality to others is an incredibly important part of VR in the long run. Normally, we see a view from the player’s perspective, but that can be jarring to watch, especially since we turn our heads so quickly! Mixed reality is one of the best solutions to showing what it really feels like to be in VR!

Using a special stereo depth camera, everything is done in-engine using a custom shader and custom plugin to be able to green screen the user and depth sort them directly into the engine itself!
