When paired with an Oculus Rift or HTC Vive, presenters can use the Desktop Menu with keyboard and mouse to help guide clients, stakeholders, and colleagues through their projects with Prospect.
In VR Tutorial
When you first launch a file in Prospect you'll be presented with an in-VR tutorial. You can disable this in your Prospect settings, or skip the tutorial from the desktop.
Using Prospect without a headset
We don't recommend using Prospect without a headset, as a headset provides a more immersive and interactive experience, but we do support certain functionality and navigation through the desktop without a headset as detailed here.
Pro users now have the ability to disable controllers and access a number of the in-VR tools directly from their desktop. This is particularly handy in situations where you’re presenting a project in-VR to someone who may be less tech-savvy, or would be more comfortable simply viewing (without being in charge of the controllers for the menu and/or navigating themselves), or when you’re doing demos for large groups and want to better regulate time and focus. You can manage this in your Prospect settings, or using the gear icon near the desktop menu.
From the Prospect Viewer window, the presenter can use the desktop menu and a mouse to control:
- Sun Settings
- Display Settings
- Turn Controllers on and off
- Keyboard controls listed below may also be used
Moving with the Keyboard:
- Up Arrow - Fly Up
- Down Arrow - Fly Down
- W - Walk forward
- S - Walk Backwards
- A - Incremental Turn Left
- D - Incremental Turn Right
- G - Ghost Mode
- M - Turn on / off Materials
- O - Turn on / off Outlines
- Viewpoints (Scenes) - Toggle between them by pressing "<" and ">" keys
