Chapter 2. Head Mounted Display Setup

UE4 removes a lot of the pain of beginning to create your VR experiences, but as with a lot of things, it is good to have a basic understanding of how to set up your project to avoid some common pitfalls.

This chapter walks you through how to set up your project to work with your desired HMD as well as some basic VR functionality.
