Vizconnect’s Merged Tracker option combines the data from separate position and orientation trackers into a single 6DOF virtual tracker. The merged tracker can be used to move the viewpoint, an avatar, and other objects. This option is commonly used to combine PPT position with Oculus or inertia cube orientation.
Vizconnect’s guided wizard will automatically create merged trackers when you specify separate position and orientation trackers during the head and hand tracking setup. If you’re using the merged tracker for avatar IK or as the link source for other objects you’ll need to add the tracker from the advanced configuration menu.
Follow the steps below to create a merged tracker from the advanced menu. It uses virtual keyboard and mouse trackers option so everyone can follow along. The same steps apply if you are using physical tracking devices:
If you are using a PPT tracking system and you also wish to correct yaw (and role) drift of an orientation sensor, you can use the optical heading option in Vizconnect which merges two PPT markers and one orientation marker. This can either be setup in PPT studio, or added through vizconnect.
