    [ANSWERED] HTC Vive - Motion Blur not working

    Hey guys... I have HTC Vive and running 2 EVGA 1080 FTWs in SLI.. I don't have a lot of time in Project Cars and I have had a bit of a struggle getting it (ALL) up and running.. so now to the problem..

    For the life of me I can't get motion blur working in the Vive... There's actually a Lock to the right of the (Motion Blur) option only when I run Vive config from steam..
    Motion Blur is unlocked if I use my monitor/default config.. I have deleted all three configs witch fixed problem # 1 (ALL SETTING) had locks on them..
    So I'm on night two of trying to fix this and thought I'ed look here and all over the net for an answer but it seems I'm the only one with this problem?

    So.. If this is locked by developers is there a way to unlock it?

    It might be disabled in VR? Did you check the xml config file in pcars? Might be able to set it 1 to turn on?
    I have mine off in VR or disabled I wouldn't think I would want blur in VR would look like ghosting and have vomit mode enabled.:-)

    Hey jjcuff1,

    Thanks for getting back to me instead of just passing this one up.. Yes I edited the main config and the openvrconfig.. It would be a great help for me if you could look in your in game config and see if the option is grayed out also with a pad lock icon to the right of it... even more so if its not could you turn it on just to verify if it actually works? But yes.. If motion blur is not done right in the engine or (kinda) true to the real world it could be a mess.. Rightnow everything in the VR mode looks like your playing an awesome looking video game... I'm getting 180 FPS and have some room for Depth of field and Motion Blur...

    At this point Im going to do a full reinstall because I just cant keep my pants on! TH

    Motion Blur is disabled for VR mode.

    Trust me, you do not want it re-enabled - it was still available to enable, in the earlier days of VR implementation but it was removed as it caused VERY strange effects.

    I agree with cluck. The monitor gaming the motion ADDS to the immersion and speed but with VR you are already in the game and the motion is real time out the sides of the car. You will see the cars drop off as you pass and physically move behind/past you. If they were also blurry for no reason it would look weird.

    Again thank you all for getting back to me...

    I would understand if it causes weird effect to the game engine but motion blur is in fact something that happens in "Real" life... Project cars is about immersion AKA simulation of our reality.. and its always has a full list of graphic settings even some people don't like.. most of these people don't like a setting because they have low powered computers making that setting useless to them.. saying you don't need motion blur for VR is like saying you don't need the colors red and blue for VR eather...

    That being said does anyone know the command string I might add the the config file to enable the option in the game? or should I repost this question in a different part of the forum?

    video from a year ago with comment from 635 days ago.. really?

    that is not VR, that's just helmet cam with the helmet removed and DoF turned off...

    There are several camera perspectives, one is this head camera. You can adjust in the settings how far the head should look ahead into corners and how much it should tilt etc. You can also fully disable it or tweak it down. And you an also enable a virtual helmet and focus blur, but it distracts too much imho. The best experience would be of course to have something like the Oculus VR or any other good 3D VR device, which are fully supported by PCars

    there is no command string to enable it, it is disabled. Full stop. You can try altering it in the 'graphicsconfigoculusdx11.xml' file but it will still remain 'locked' and disabled in game.

    No it is not.

    Motion blur is a technique used in movies to make quick movement look smoother because they run at 24 images per second and during quick movement things would move way too far between 2 images which would result in teleportation-ish.
    It is made to mimick the loss of focus, failing to keep track with your eyes of something that move too quickly, but that's not the real thing (kind of like hydrolic cockpits which lean to mimick G forces, but that not exactly how it works in RL and bring other unwanted stuff with them). But it's not like that "fault" disappear in a video game (especially in VR where you are not watching form a distance).

    Unless the world in pcars appear to sutter at high speed for you, there is no need for motion blur since it is not realistic.
