Using Open Brush on PC or Mac without a VR headset: “Monoscopic mode”
Open Brush has got a secret mode where it can be used without a VR headset - and even works on Mac! This mode was never released to the public and is clunky in places.
We don't currently publish the monoscopic version alongside other releases but our automated build system always creates them every time we build a new testing version.
(Note that you'll need to be logged in to Github to download files)
2. Once you've found one then click on the first column ("Builds" in this case but that might differ) and you'll see something similar to this:
3. The number underneath "Artifacts" on the right takes you to the list of downloads at the bottom of the page:
4. Assuming you're logged in, the text on the left of any of the rows will start a download. In this case you want one with "Monoscopic" in the name - for example "Windows Monoscopic Experimental"
5. When the download is complete unzip it and look for an executable file. There will probably be two executables one folder deep. One will be called "UnityCrashHandler64" - you want the other one!
- 1.Alt+mousing will rotate your viewpoint.
- 2.Panels become focussed when roughly centered to the viewport. Your cursor is then locked to the panel boundary making it easier to click the buttons.
- 3.Dragging with the right button down will bring the drawing plane nearer or further.
- 4.Ctrl+mouse will rotate the drawing plane
- 5.Clicking in the game window will capture your mouse cursor. Escape will return full control (so you can interact with Unity etc)
- 6.In most cases you can alt+mouse to left or right to view the tool panels and choose tools/brushes with the mouse.
- 7.Rotating with “Alt” whilst pressing shift will allow you to move the panel you were currently focussed on.
- 8.Sometimes panels appear in weird places. Try looking behind you or down at your feet.
However many aren’t relevant, aren’t implemented or only apply in particular modes.
Here are the useful ones:
