    • @aprga no-I-didn’t , we-actually-lost-funding and-had-to-leave-the-studio .

      I-still-have-plans of-continuing-the-experiments ,
      though-perhaps once-I-have-the-space-and-resources-that-i-need .

      Perhaps-maybe-next-time i’ll-track-it-with-the-phone-camera
      paired-with-the-phone-accelerometer.

      • Yeah man, that´d be great good luck, but i have a question, how are you tracking the phone, does ni mate has any object tracking function?

  1. No it’s-tracking-my-body-posture-and-hand-position , the-device-just-outputs-the-preview from-the-PC .

    I-was-able-to-map-some-functions-for-it though-like stop/ play/ record even-changing-focal-length ,
    everything-while-recording-was-possible ,
    newer-versions of-the-NiDroidcam had-a-mouseroll-attached-to-it which-I-used-for-zooming-in-and-out-the-camera while-blender-adds-keyframes-in-realtime.
