The complete guide to Hand Tracking in DeoVR

We’re delighted to announce the current version of DeoVR has the Quest Hand Tracking feature ready to go. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to get started.

First, go to the "Hands and Controllers" section in your Quest headset’s settings (settings > Device > Hands and Controllers). Turn Hand Tracking on. 

Now, when you open any video or image for the first time with hand tracking enabled you will see a tutorial showing you the special gesture (clap) that will open or close the player interface.

This tutorial can be disabled in the tutorial and reenabled in the Developer Settings of the DeoVR app.

You will find a new button on the main player panel that enables or disables hand visibility when the interface is hidden. Here’s where you can enjoy trying to "touch" objects in the video. 

In the Controller settings of the app, you can assign movements such as pinches of different fingers to various actions, such as assigning the middle finger of your primary hand to make a screenshot.

Note: when the player interface is hidden no actions will work apart from the clap. This is to avoid unwanted actions when watching the video.

By default "Main action" is set to the index finger of the primary hand, "Back" to the pinky finger of the primary hand, and "Change primary hand" to the index finger on the secondary hand.

You can find more information about this revolutionary new feature at the official Meta Quest help site.
