Go Drifting Mixed Reality Style

Marcel Pfister has released a new edition of his Mixed Reality series, going sideways in the Caterham 360R.

If you’re a close follower of sim racing, you’ll know Marcel Pfisters famous Mixed Reality videos that have been a hit on Youtube in recent months.

As usual, Marcel tries to perfect his technique of blending real and virtual footage with each new video and for his newest edition, he’s upped the level once more.

His newest video is all about drifting as we get to watch Marcel go sideways in the Caterham 360R at Akina.

What is Mixed Reality?

It´s a way to record and show gameplay to serve a better understanding of how it feels to use Virtual Reality. It uses a greenscreen to later blend out the room you are playing in and instead blending in the virtual environment life or in video editing. So it´s only a way to show to the viewers, while playing i can´t see my wheel and real hands. So it´s not like Augmented Reality, which will maybe come in a few years and will look similar. The quality looks worse than it is while playing, because i record in 1080p, but have t stretch and crop the footage to a part of one eye, which results in a resolution less than 720p.
