VREyeParameters.recommendedFieldOfView

Deprecated: This feature is no longer recommended. Though some browsers might still support it, it may have already been removed from the relevant web standards, may be in the process of being dropped, or may only be kept for compatibility purposes. Avoid using it, and update existing code if possible; see the compatibility table at the bottom of this page to guide your decision. Be aware that this feature may cease to work at any time.

Experimental: This is an experimental technology
Check the Browser compatibility table carefully before using this in production.

The recommendedFieldOfView read-only property of the VREyeParameters interface describes the recommended field of view for the current eye — ideally based on user calibration.

Note: This property was part of the old WebVR API. It has been superseded by the WebXR Device API.

Syntax

var recFOV = myEyeParameters.recommendedFieldOfView;

Value

A VRFieldOfView object.

Examples

The following example is taken from the Mozilla VR Team's threejs-vr-boilerplate code — to be precise, the VREffect.js file. Early on in the code the HMDVRDevice.getEyeParameters method is used to access information about each eye — VREyeParameters.offset and VREyeParameters.recommendedFieldOfView — which are used for rendering calculations later on.

if ( vrHMD.getEyeParameters !== undefined ) {

    var eyeParamsL = vrHMD.getEyeParameters( 'left' );
    var eyeParamsR = vrHMD.getEyeParameters( 'right' );

    eyeTranslationL = eyeParamsL.eyeTranslation;
    eyeTranslationR = eyeParamsR.eyeTranslation;
    eyeFOVL = eyeParamsL.recommendedFieldOfView;
    eyeFOVR = eyeParamsR.recommendedFieldOfView;

} else {

  ...

}

Specifications

This property was part of the old WebVR API that has been superseded by the WebXR Device API. It is no longer on track to becoming a standard.

Until all browsers have implemented the new WebXR APIs, it is recommended to rely on frameworks, like A-Frame, Babylon.js, or Three.js, or a polyfill, to develop WebXR applications that will work across all browsers [1].
