I don't think I'll get an answer but I thought I'd give it a shot.

Other than the very first time I tried this out (when I had custom measurements that were wrong, forcing my legs to bend, but thus making better floor contact which I think then kept the feet from slipping) I've not been able to get the feet stable when doing captures.  They stay stable for a while, then one leg gets left behind, or slides or messes up or whatever.  It's not the room -- the room is now as bare as it could be, with no reflective surfaces of any kind (other than the wood floor which is the same as I've seen in Orion demos).  I've recalibrated a number of times with no good results.


Worse, I've tried taking this into Webanimate to perhaps clean it up with no good results either.  So now I'm beginning to think the reason you don't sell many of these is it just doesn't work reliably.  But since I have two more days on the demo I'll ask one more time -- any thing I might try to improve my results?  Arms and head and upper body track perfectly, but feet/legs are just not reliable enough for me to keep this (luckily I can still get my money back on all the hardware, and I haven't bought the software yet, so my next stop is Perception Neuron).

you havent gotten any answers from huh.  I know you gotbperception neuron and hope all is well with you.  I am on trial as well.  and although I am very happy with ipisoft, needed a realtime mocap so I am trying orion.   took me a lot of tests and grinding but it works most of the time.  knee and feet arent perfect so need clean up.  


would love to see you pn tests. 


they should make orion cheaper...

Yeah, I could never get it right, but the PN was a breath of fresh air.


I've done a lot with it.  Here's just a few:

One thing i must tell you all they gonna do is ask for project files then tell you some crap on how to fix and it might fix it or not 90% it wont get fixed then they gonna tell you that it works on their end but it still not Woking on your end then you give up on it move on and try to fix it yourself. This was exactly me with webanimate and the freaking runtime indie plugin, its been a whole year and the plugin still outdated not working with the latest engine then i gave up and moved on on trying to fix it myself but im unable to fix cause they are selling the source code of the plugin for 10k+ and just recently they released a video but the plugin still outdated that just proves me they dont really care much about us indie developers which is sad.

You must also choose either Action for Maya or Action for MotionBuilder as a part of the package.
