Unable to hide Avatar/Hands



I'm unable to completely hide the avatar body or hands. I don't see an option in the settings to completely disable this feature. The body and arms are extremely intrusive and will bug out if trying to hide them behind the headset. 

When trying to watch videos, its very annoying to see the arms/hands in the way. When moving them off screen or trying  to lay down, the rig will snap to the front of the camera and jitter uncontrollably making it impossible to see anything. 

It would be nice to a permanent setting and a gesture shortcut (tap device together to hide all avatar visuals for example).

Im having the same issue, when I'm watching videos and let the controllers rest, my avatar starts glitching allover the screen completely running the experience.

Hey hey guys! I just wanted to reach out since it seems this thread has been a bit quiet. When it comes to the avatars, there aren't really any settings to disable any part of it. 

For something like this, I'd recommend posting on the ideas forum side of things since it's where our engineers look for features to possibly bring out in later updates. 🙂
