FAQ

Is ARFX Launcher good for professional production? 

Yes, while the ARFX Launcher is not as customizable as the ARFX Pro Plugin, it still provides a large amount of Virtual Production tools and presets that can be accessible through ARwall’s new menu user interface, while in play mode. This means you can still access most of the professional tools that we provide for our Unreal Engine ARFX Pro Plugin, but without needing to know how to use Unreal Engine.

These are the same tools we use for all our projects including The Muppets Haunted Mansion, Nightflyers, Sci-Fi Fan Films, various music videos, and commercials. All our products are studio-quality XR filmmaking tools that can create professional level content. The ARFX Launcher provides support for the Vive Pro tracking hardware, which is an affordable, easy to set up and use tracking system.

How long does set up take? 

First time set up for hardware can take about 1 hour or less, and first time software set up should take 5 minutes. Once you’re familiar with these set ups, it should take less than 1 minute to launch and calibrate. ARFX Launcher Video Walkthrough can be found here.

Do I need to create my own backdrops or are they provided? 

ARfx Launcher comes with 10 Virtual Production ready maps with preset bookmarks, so you can start shooting right away.

What are the recommended PC Specs? 

CPU: Minimum: Intel Core i5 Processor (11th Generation) / Recommended: Intel Core i9 Processor (12th Generation)

GPU: Minimum: Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 / Recommended: Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 or higher

"I came in knowing very little about virtual production and was SHOCKED at how easy ARwall made the whole process. It ended being one of the smoothest shoots I've ever been on."​
