1. A method of display user control movement in a computing device of a virtual reality system including a head-mounted display (HMD) and a controller, the method comprising:
generating a first image in a first-person perspective with a first-person control setting, wherein the first-person perspective indicates that a user sees the first image as if seen through an avatar's eyes, and a field of view of the avatar is controlled by the user, and the first-person control setting indicates that the user's movement is displayed by a relative position between the avatar and a scene of images;
simulating the avatar according to a first control signal received from the controller of the virtual reality system;
switching the first-person control setting to a third-person control setting in the first-person perspective; and
generating a second image with the third-person control setting when the first-person perspective is maintained, wherein the step of generating the second image in the first-person perspective with the third-person control setting comprises generating a pose scene of the avatar in the second image according to a position information of the HMD, wherein the second image in the first-person perspective is the same as the first image in the first-person perspective, except that the second image includes the avatar and the first image does not includes the avatar;
wherein the third-person control setting indicates that avatar movement and a location of the avatar displayed in the second image is controlled by the controller.
