OpenVR Recorder BETA

Brekel OpenVR Recorder is designed to record tracking data from devices with drivers for OpenVR / SteamVR.
This currently includes controllers, HMDs and trackers from HTC Vive and Oculus Rift VR systems.

The accuracy and high framerates of these VR devices can be useful for use in 3D animation, VFX production, general research or record during play-testing of VR games/experiences.


Beta testing is free (sign up below), once all bugs are ironed out and the feature set is complete this will become a commercial tool. Final price hasn’t been decided yet but you can expect something affordable in line with the prices of my other apps.
