Some of you may have seen my previous post, but I have decided to make another since my question has slightly changed.
When ever the center of my headset's vision is on a dark colour, a glare appears in the center of the headset vision that appears to be a reflection of any white/light colours near by.
I have taken a few screen shots and tried to simulate the glare I get, please see the screen shots below.
Above we see the original screen shot.
In the image below I have attempted to recreate the glare I see in my headset (center of black image). If I tilt the headset up and down, the glare moves up and down (the glare is always in the center of the vision). I think the glare is a reflection of the white pixels below the black image.
In the next image I have widened the screen so there is now white at the bottom and sides. You can therefore see that the centered glare reflection matches the white pixels.
This sort of glare always appears in the center of the vision, when enough lightly coloured pixels are present. So, I also get this glare from the aurora lights in the sky in the background. The glare is only visible when there is a lot of dark, for example in the Vader Immortal game.
I have come across "god rays", where the glare emanates from white pixels. However, this glare is always in the center of the headset vision. When I look up as in the image below, I don't see any glare on the black image. The glare moves up and stays in the center of the headset vision.
Would anyone please be willing to try this experiment on their quest and see if you get the same glare? To do this test I simply searched for images using the search word "black" in the oculus browser, and selected an image.
The glare intensity is similar if not worse than what I have tried to create here, and there is more glare all around in general.
I would be very curious to hear if others get the same results. I would like to know, as I can still get a replacement since I ordered through Amazon.
Some more points in case anyone is curous:
- If I close either eye, the glare remains the same (so I don't think it is a scratch)
- If I rotate my head, the glare doesn't change
- If I move my head up/down/left/right the glare goes up/down/left/right (always stays in the center)
