First Run


After the installation you should make sure everything is working before going on your own. For this first run you will need at least the basic sample from the samples repository.

Launch BlenderVR

Start by opening the BlenderVR GUI (see Running BlenderVR in the Install section). Although in the future you can launch it via a shortcut, for the first run it’s better to do it via command-line, to catch any unexpected error. It is advised to understand how to manipulate the User Interface before going any further.

Open the Simulation File

In the Simulation File select the basic.blend file. Mark NameLink for the to be automatically selected as the Processor File.

Edit the Configuration File

You now need a valid Configuration File to run BlenderVR. Make sure to follow the correct instructions and set a correct blender and blenderplayer paths.

Remember to select and load the configuration file.


For the initial test it’s recommended to create a single screen with a mono buffer setup.


If there are no errors in the configuration tab, change to the Run tab and hit Start .

Congratulations, you can now try the other sample files, configuration options and finally bring your own .blend files into BlenderVR.
