Setting your height

If you use a VR headset, it's important that you set your avatar's height to match your real-world height. ENGAGE uses tracking information from your headset and hand controllers to create an accurate representation of your movements. This not only ensures that the view from your headset matches the eyeline of your avatar, it is also used for calculations such as your avatar's arm length.

If you need to change the height of your avatar, for example, because people of different heights use the same VR headset, then you can use one of the following methods.

To support regions that use imperial units, if you select English or French as the application language, you can enter your height in either centimetres or feet and inches. For all other languages, enter your height in centimetres.
