I've got a Valve Index and trying to get the fit and settings right. PC is running a 5950x and a 3090.
The image I see in the headset and on my screen seems like they have been smoothed, even when very close. I have tried to change things inside steamvr: higher sampling, lower refresh, turned off motion smoothing, etc., but haven't found anything that makes much difference.
Is the testhmd itself using lower resolution?
Does the pixel density setting matter? I noticed that if I lower it things get really jagged. But when I increase it I haven't noticed any sharpening.
