it was just a lot of clicking around. settings in unity were not being applied on save (in 2018.3). or we’d have this or this issue in unity, but library apps would look ok. or i’d change the settings to match https://blog.lookingglassfactory.com/getting-started-with-the-holoplay-sdk-for-unity-in-the-looking-glass-5e915b49db15 exactly, and it would reduce the flickering in unity, but then the library apps would look garbled.
at one point (i think after a unity editor restart) it all ‘just worked’ and i haven’t touched it since. currently my settings for the looking glass display are similar to what’s in most of the guides, but at a 3840 x 2160 resolution (which also is tagged as ‘recommended’ in the Windows’ display settings). this contradicts what’s here, i’m not sure about other guides.
the printed instructions for installing the base plate are also reversed; you should ‘push up’ rather than ‘pull down’ if the glass is (safely) facing up -> i noticed in one of your older videos you demonstrate installing it with the glass facing down, in which case you were ‘pulling down’ cheers!
