FAQ

  • Why are Tweens disabled by default on all VR platforms?

    A tween is an automated camera view. On a flat screen it can be very useful to take control of the camera and move it to a specific area of interest that is interesting for a viewer to see. In VR this involuntary camera movement is likely to induce nausea, which is why when you author a Tween it is turned off by default on all the VR platforms. You can override this setting if you need to.
