  2. Double click on VR-Suite icon on the desktop to start the program. This opens the Project Portal that shows all the available presentations.
  3. In VR, you can look around by just turning your head. Look left, right, up and down.

A VR-Suite Project can be created with the built-in Editor or with an external method called the Advanced Input Method. Presentations can be created while wearing a VR headset or without a headset, in non-VR-Mode.

  1. The first step is to define the purpose of your Project and decide how to meet the needs of your target group. This will lead you to determine what content is needed and in what order you want to display it.

  2. Collect all the desired media (you can add, delete or change content at any time later).

  3. Start the VR-Suite by double clicking the VR-Suite icon on the desktop (either using a VR-Headset or without)

  4. In the Project Portal click on +Create in the lower right corner & enter a Project Name. If you are using non-VR mode, you can type the name on your standard keyboard. (The name can only contain standard alpha-numeric characters.)

  5. Select “Start Now” and a tutorial panorama is displayed that explains how to build up a Project. It consists of 6 illustrated steps.

  6. Use the select button on your VR controller or double-tap the Space Bar on the keyboard to enter Editor Mode. You must be in Editor Mode to select your content and define the structure of your presentation. Start Editor Mode

  7. Open the “iMenu” with one of these methods:

    • In VR mode, look forward, then move your head down until you see the i icon for the iMenu
    • In non-VR mode, double-click the mouse
    • See also Launch the iMenu
