When recording gameplay footage from Keep Defending

Please note that the second stage of level 4 (“Highguard”), all of level 5 (“Crystal Caves”) and all of level 9 (“Tower Of Stars”) are set in night-time environments.

Because of this you will need to increase the gamma/brightness of any video footage you record of these levels so your viewers can see what’s going on (as the visuals in the Vive headset are brighter than what is captured in Windows).

You can add gamma to footage easily in YouTube itself by editing a video, selecting the “Enhancements” tab and then adjusting the “Fill Light” slider until the footage can be seen clearly.
