How to render VR content in Corona Renderer?






VR capabilities have been added in post-1.3 versions of Corona. They can be found in CoronaCameraMod modifier, which can be applied to any type of camera. Currently Corona is capable of rendering a single file containing two spherical (equirectangular) or cubemap images for both eyes. The rendered output can be used directly with the software supporting such format, or should be manually edited if that's required.

Please note that, as of the moment of writing, Corona does not yet support rendering left/right VR panoramas and only top/bottom is available.
