What is motion compensation?
Motion compensation is a feature that helps smooth frame rates in VR applications for a more seamless visual experience. If an app is unable to consistently deliver the needed frame rate (90 FPS for VIVE Cosmos), motion compensation reduces the frame rate by half, and then uses advanced prediction algorithms to synthesize the missing frames. The result is smoother performance without stuttering or lag, while requiring less processing power to render. This can also help relieve disorientation and motion sickness caused by VR lag.
Motion compensation can further reduce the frame rate below half, and synthesize additional frames as needed. However, synthesized frames may have artifacts in some apps.
Here's how to enable motion compensation:
From VIVE Console, click > Settings > Video. Then, turn on the Motion compensation On/Off switch.
Supported graphics cards include:
NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX1060 or better. AMD™ GPU support coming soon.
