Get started with Open Brush
To paint in 3D with Open Brush, you’ll need to have a VR headset that supports SteamVR or any Oculus headset.
HTC Vive / Valve Index
Rift users can either use the SteamVR build as described above for the HTC Vive / Valve Index, or the Rift-specific build described here:
Oculus Quests can either be used standalone or tethered to a PC. For tethered ("PCVR" mode), see the instructions above for the SteamVR build for HTC Vive / Valve index. For standalone mode (which has some performance limitations compared to being connected to a PC), follow these instructions:
Windows Mixed Reality
Note that left handed users can switch the left and right controllers by tapping (gently!) the base of the two controllers together, so that the left hand controller will paint and the right hand controller will contain the various panels and settings. You can also swap left and right hands in the Settings Panel
When you run Open Brush for the very first time, you'll be shown an introductory tutorial teaching you how to paint and use the palette.
Every time the app is started after that initial run, your palette hand will by default open to the Sketchbook. In the Sketchbook, you can choose between viewing some featured sketches by the community and your own saved sketches. You can also choose to start a new sketch.
