i havent seen the index or reverb, but i have read this post by runesr2;
Watched a few movies using BigScreen Revive with Index res 200%, (=
solid 90 fps) and it's close to being in a theater. But one movie was
mkv another mp4, although 1080p it's just not good enough. You need 4K.
that's just me, I'm sure many persons with little knowledge about VR
would be totally blown away. With 4K and virtual surround sound I think
Index might be really close to IMAX at home
i decided to tell him in that thread that he probably wasn't using the settings i use for the cv1 to watch video, and i forgot my settings for watching videos, so i dusted off my cv1 and set it up and installed the software etc and got this fine picture of my virtual desktop settings for watching videos;
i watched a few videos and saw a artifact i hadn't noticed before, as a benefit of the cv1 screen-door effect. by there being a screen-door effect, the eye making the image more clear in the one spot looked at while blurry the other areas, you don't see the screen-door effect uniformly.
this adds a depth factor to the image, seeing the screen-door effect lines acts to add in detail that isn't there in the actual video frame. and that SDE isn't in the index or reverb, at least not to the level it is in the cv1.
therefore i deduced watching the same video in the index or reverb without the cv1 SDE quality would lack some depth in the image that the cv1 has. if you had the eye tracking blur some of the video you might have the same effect but you might not, hard to say.
of note is the fact i often use negativescreen to produce visual effects in my video,s sometimes, so i know a beneficial video artifact looks like when i see one. the SDE adds in a lot of tiny effects that are attractive, using my virtual desktop settings above and in full screen video watching 1080p video, in the cv1.
but the cv1 is still a bit tight near my right cheek bone under my eye so i cant wear the cv1 for too long. i would like the cv2 to have a nice padding on the bones under the eye please...
