  2. Great show. I was happy to be a part of the audience too. Thanks!

    Facial tracking nodes don’t move with rotations, but with translations. So, if you want an easy transfer of facial mocap data, or real time tracking, then your system needs to include bone translations.

    1. Willow says:

      Something that concerns me about facial tracking is because of a physical injury is I am very non standard and would really drive something like facial tracking completely crazy. For example if I wake up in the morning and am having a bad day my head move movements very erratic and trembling and not only couldn’t be tracked they also have nothing to do with facial expression. That is also something that concerns me with other of the VR tracking devices.

      Another concern is security particularly with something that uses the built in web cam. I don’t want someone stealing my likeness unknown to me. So I’ve taped a paper card over the lens of the built in camera of my computer.

      1. Thomas Galbreus says:

        Good point, I also hate built-in cameras, and more so built-in microphones, since a piece of tape can’t solve that problem.

      2. I think this will be optional. IMO it MUST be, otherwise the whole promise of agency over identity is worth nothing!

  4. happy to announce = my first part of my second life as “draxtoriusBIG” is on the YouTubezzz = streamed live from the FS orientation experience = https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RgJF8KCNTY0 – to be continued!
