The calibrate function allows you to measure your body and transfer it to a virtual avatar. This allows a more precise recording of the body movements and a representation in avatar form.
In the first step, the calibration provides default values that can be modified. These values are saved beyond the application restart and thus form a new default. This way, you don't have to recalibrate every time and can take calibrated shots at any time.
Menu > Evaluation > Calibrate
Step 1: Set body height
The default body height is 180 cm. Use the "Plus (+)" and "Minus (-)" fields in the opened window to adjust the body height to your measurements. Then click continue.
Step 2: Set gender
You can distinguish between male and female. This option selection is based on anthropometric data and causes the automatically calculated range values to be adjusted according to gender.
Step 3: Adjust the reach
"Plus (+)" and "Minus (-)" fields in the menu or on the controller touchpad or joystic , respectively, to adjust the previously calculated reach of your arms. The shelf and the table serve you as test material. Grab different objects on different levels, using the distance setting on the controller to set the optimal reach for you. Use the representation of the avatar in the (virtual) mirror in front of you to visually evaluate your settings.
Tip: The elbow behavior can work well as a reference: Stand as close to the table as possible, but without your avatar colliding with the table. Check your position by looking in the mirror. Stretch your arm so that you can reach the objects on the table with slightly bent arms. Adjust your reach so that your elbow is slightly bent.
Step 4: Complete the calibration
During the entire calibration you can examine the current result, your avatar, in the mirror. On yourself, you will see only hands during the recording. Before you finish the calibration, make sure that the avatar fits in the mirror and everything feels good. Also, make sure you haven't set your range too long.
Step 5: Save and finish calibration
Now you can take process recordings with your calibrated body. At the beginning of each exposure you have to extend both arms forward and confirm with the trigger. This step is especially important if you are working with previously saved calibration data, as it projects the calibration onto your body position.
