I think the AR/VR market is

I think the AR/VR market is going to explode soon (end 2015 - 2016 - 2017) ...

Many people are going to jump on these things and if Vuo can help people do great things easily, it will be a great source to get people use Vuo if it's done right, simple and early.

I don't really understand and am able to classify yet how all these devices will manage content (what inputs they will have, what files and exported supports they will run ...)

But, I think, at the start, the most general, wide and simple the patches are, the better it could be.

For example I saw there is an Oculus support request, an HTC Vive one etc ... But will we need specific patches for all of these ? Would it not be possible to get some general one's first ? I understand each VR & AR headsets are going to have their own SDK's and gyroscopes and all that stuff, but perhaps they have some things in common that could pretend to get some general patches ?

For example, as far as I understand the thing all VR headsets needs the images to be splitted, stereoscoped, and pre-distorted. What about a general patch where we could adjust the predistorstion for example so that it could work with a wide range of AR/VR devices ?

@alexmitchellmus, we'd be

@alexmitchellmus, we'd be open to adding support for other VR headsets, depending on votes from the community. Unless someone comes out with an API that works with multiple VR headsets, Team Vuo would need to do the work to integrate each different kind of VR headset, with its unique API, one by one.

If you're interested in alternatives to Oculus Rift, please create separate feature requests for each kind of VR headset. That way, we can prioritize them based on votes.

Just to let you know, if you were to create a feature request for Vive, we might not open it for voting immediately, since Vive and Vuo can't yet run on the same operating system.

Feature status

When we (Team Vuo) plan each release, we try to implement as many of the community's top-voted feature requests as we have time for. Vote your favorite features to the top! (How do Vuo feature requests work?)
