2. Control Your External Lighting

Adjusting the light source in your area is a good idea. Try turning on the lights and opening your curtains, but avoid recording in direct sunlight.

3. Dismiss the Pop-Up

Bypass and close the prompt if you think the lighting is already fine. You can still record videos either way—they just won’t turn out well in poor lighting conditions.

4. Redo the Hand-Eye Coordination Setup

Redo the eye-and-hand coordination setup on your device. Click the top-left button on your device four times and then follow the on-screen instructions that appear.

Hopefully you’ll be able to record high-quality spatial videos after troubleshooting. And if you also stream movies often, you should know what to do when 3D movies are malfunctioning on Apple Vision Pro.
