Fusion Hotkeys


This document is a summary of the custom Fusion hotkeys included with the KartaVR toolset.

The KartaVR Hotkeys.fu preference file is installed in your Fusion "Config" folder as part of the regular KartaVR installation process. You can start using the hotkeys right away to boost your productivity.

One of the nicest features of the hotkey files is you can now send panoramic imagery from Fusion to a desktop panoramic 360° media viewer of your choice or to an Oculus Rift/HTC VIVE/OSVR HMD with a single "TAB" keypress! This TAB hotkey will launch the Panoview script for you.

Pressing the "V" key in the Fusion flow area lets you push your active media to a Google VR View webpage using the Publish Media to Google Cardboard VR View script. This is great for viewing your panoramic 360° media in a web browser, on a smartphone, tablet, or in a Google Carboard HMD.
