Mind Probe Labs’ virtual reality (VR) cinema software CINEVEO has been available on Steam for the Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD) since early 2015. The app has seen a regular slew of updates with the most recent being this week to add Oculus Rift CV1 support. Today though, the company has now announced CINEVEO will also work on the HTC Vive HMD.
The developers update notes on Steam states: “The SteamVR version of CINEVEO for the HTC Vive provides the identical VR Cinema experience as the Oculus Rift version with all features available. Note: This is the first release of CINEVEO for SteamVR and the HTC Vive. There might still be some bugs and issues, which we hope to solve in future updates.”
As VRFocus previously reported the latest version 1.9.1 now includes The 4D Movie Theater v4.0 and The Void v3.0, as well as graphical enhancements, improvements to the multiplayer audience and a new dynamic lighting technique (CINEVEO’s Stereo PFOV Lighting).
CINEVEO is also on discount at the moment with a 50 percent saving. It can now be purchased for £3.49 GBP rather than £6.99. There’s no details on how long this saving will run for, so if you want to watch movies in VR it might be worth picking up.
VRFocus will continue its coverage of CINEVEO, reporting back any further updates.
