When running Arkio on a PC with a VR headset connected you can choose to show a smoothed VR camera (default). Or enable a third-person hybrid camera that allows the local PC user to navigate, view and collaborate on the same model as the VR users offline.
You can press the top left screen icon to switch from the normal smoothed VR camera to enable another camera with the normal flat UI of Arkio visible. This camera can be controlled like a normal flat version of Arkio where the users can use the Mouse and keyboard to follow another user around and see their avatars in 3rd person.
The PC hybrid mode can be handy when having to work on Arkio from both VR and PC eg to select and import files from our plugins or to help guide the user in VR around your models.
The PC version of Arkio can load larger files, renders in higher resolution and has better shadow than the standalone version of Arkio on eg a Quest headset. This makes the smoothed VR camera and 3rd person Hybrid mode great if you want to make recordings or presentations of what is happening inside Arkio that are comfortable to watch by people on a 2D screen.
