    Hello,
    I am trying for some days to make blur effect on my virtual reality project.
    The problem is that I am NOT using Unity pro and I tried putting a image canvas in front of the cameras but I got weird results with bit of blurry but upside down view.. or black screen.
    This project is for Google Cardboard.
    If you have a solution to this problem please let me know.
    Thank you

    There is no difference between personal and pro as far as engine features go.

    disable 'direct render' on the carboard camera script, this allows for image effect
    you will need to apply it to both eyes (as well as the main camera if you allow for a VR toggle)

    with all the render textures going on, you will have horrible FPS, until Google and Unity integrate the SDK like they did for the oculus.

    it's best not to use any image effects for now, you can try scaling up the eye resolution instead, this will be down-sampled and cause the lines to be a lot less aliased.

    I cannot find 'direct render' on cardboard camera script. Can you show me where it is or something?

    update the SDK to v0.6, drop in the Cardboard camera setup prefab, on the main camera, there is a StereoController with the "direct render" option. Be warned this can be horrible for FPS.

    Hopefully Unity will add natvie Cardboard support soon.
