Unity Legacy Plugin

Note: you are currently viewing documentation for a beta or an older version of Varjo

This page describes how you can set up and use the Unity development environment for the Varjo headset.

If you want to know more about generic Unity development and practices, we recommend checking the development basics with Unity’s Documentation and Tutorials.


To set up the Unity environment, the following are required:

Getting started

The Getting started section will guide you through downloading and installing the Varjo plugin for Unity.

Using the Varjo Plugin for Unity

This section will explain how to set up the plugin and make sure your build is working correctly with the Varjo headset. Refer to “Creating a new Unity project” for new projects and “Updating an existing Unity project” for existing project migration.


Examples can be downloaded from the Downloads page. They are fully optional. Explanations of the examples can be found on the Unity Examples page.

Making a build

Making a build for the Varjo headset is no different than creating any other VR build. For further instructions refer to the Unity documentation. Note: Only 64-bit builds are supported by Varjo headsets.

Developing without the Varjo headset

On the Developer tools in Varjo Base page you can find information on how to test your build without the Varjo headset.
