Could we have the ability to increase the distance of the screen in vlc even when i use screen distance offset, currently the screen is absolutely huge in vlc, i can’t watch any movie at all, maybe there is something i am missing?

Just thought i’d update this, this applies to everything in virtual cinema mode such as games, how are people able to play games in this mode, the screen is far too big, would probably need screen offset size set to 5.00!Jun 29, 2016 at 8:04pm #104168
sorry to bump this, i don’t mean to be impatient, i just want to know if i am missing something, is everyone really playing games/watching movies with a screen this big, is there some hidden option i am missing to reduce the screen size because even in a 4:3 screen my distance of the screen takes up the entire oculus rifts vieweable screen, my viweng distance must be 0.5x the diagonal distance or something, no where near the norm.
I would love to plaY 4:3 games and cinemascope movies in virtual cinema mode, because these look terible on my widescreen monitor, so this will be my main viewing for those aspect ratios.Jun 29, 2016 at 9:05pm #104174RalfKeymaster
The “Ambience” and “None” scenes allow you to push back the screen a good chunk farther.Jun 29, 2016 at 9:36pm #104183
okay i just tried that and it does help but it’s still far too large, in 4:3 the screen takes up the full heght of my vision, its a shame because this is the ultimate way to view content, in a perfect dimmed lighting cinema enviroment for all aspect ratios from super NES 8:7 to ben hur’s 2.76:1, it even does triple monitor aspect ratio.
do you think you will implement screen distance offset to 5.00 or is there a technical limitation, i’m starting to think i am crazy as maybe everyone thinks the screen size is fine?.Jun 29, 2016 at 10:55pm #104186RalfKeymaster
Definitely not for the lounge scene. The others will be looked into and *maybe* the max distance will be changed. As you noticed yourself, there weren’t any other requests for this so far, but I will re-evaluate this for you. No promises though.Jun 29, 2016 at 11:38pm #104191
thanks rafl, as a work around i found that when in “lounge” if i move my head close to the sensor and reset my center position, and then move back 4 feet in my room it looks better but its sill too large, probably about the same as “None” in that case, i wouldn’t mind knowing what other people are doing and how they feel about the screen size?
i have always dreamed of a modern high qaulity 4:3 screen and many home theater enthusiasts have requested that the industry make them so it’s really quite a big deal that vorpx provides this in an amazing enviroment, obviously this isnt’ the main feature of the product but its pretty good.Aug 21, 2016 at 12:08pm #110560chichikbParticipant
First, vorpX is a great program. But like ‘OculusRiftRocks’ I need to increase the distance and the limit is so tiny. Something like 5 may help to use vorpX more than 10 minutes.
