Hello all here, I created the VR Template a little while ago now however due to time (or lack there of) I couldn’t update it as frequently as I would have liked, to combat this I decided to take on a project that would require less up keep while do more to teach the community on how to use VR in ue4 then the template ever could.
's VR Lab is this project.
A (hopefully, no promises though :P) weekly tutorial series on working with VR in UE4, it will basically be a culmination of all the VR tips and tricks I’ve picked up in the past few years of VR development.
If you’re new to VR in UE then check it out, if your and old timer VR dev still check it out and give me feedback at:
So without any further ado here’s the first episode(video, don’t know what to call them yet)
Also if you want to see a certain video send me an email at
edit 1/02/16: I made a trello board to keep track of progress, feel free to vote on the tutorials you want to see the most
The series will remain free for the foreseeable future if you feel like supporting me feel free to donate.
You are a legend dude, your VR project was pivotal to me releasing my VR demo. So thank you for that. Can’t wait to follow this tutorial series. If you set up a way to donate to you I will donate what I can.
This is awesome. I’m very happy you’re continuing to do educational things. The last episode was pretty good, though I wish you had gone into at least a little bit of detail as to how you created those ‘helper’ functions … I’m having a bit of trouble re-creating what you did and the files you put on google I can’t seem to import
With that said, you mentioned you were going to go further into them in future episodes, as is changes for each version, so I suppose I’ll just wait patiently. Thanks !
I haven’t done any videos on it before, but I’ve done it a few times in my own games.
What I end up doing is creating a Pawn placing it in the level and setting “Auto Posses Player” to player 0 so the player uses this by default. Then create a new matinee actor and animate however you need.

Great last two videos - I was going to request something similar to the puzzle mechanic, but then you’ve already done it!
If you’re looking for topics to address in the future one thing I’ve been wrestling with and think might be helpful are menus that pop up in front of the character and/or HMD view to adjust settings - like you had set up in the VR template.
Thank you, but as i mentioned i am very new at ue4. I use the 1st Person Blueprint from the Default Content. I figured out how to create a spline, but i have still no idea how to connect it to a camera and animate it. The unreal Tutorials are not the best for my Project can you upload me a simple Project how you managed it? So i can take a look and learn Thanks Roland
