Tracking Tips and Tricks for Multiple PS Eye Cameras

Light Settings

Colors differ due to non-ambient lighting

Ideally, lighting should be ambient. In this case colors of clothes and body will look the same in all cameras, and you can leave default light settings.

But in real-life you can have non-uniform, when most light comes from window, or bright light source. In this case colors will be darker in cameras directed towards this light source, and lighter in the rest of cameras. In this case adjusting light settings will substantially improve tracking.

You can find light settings at Scene tab.

  • Light source position is marked by yellow ball. Click and drag light control to orbit the light source. Approximate postions will be fine, you do not need to be very accurate.
  • You can also change light intensity. You can check how it influences tracking using View > Pose Mismatch window. Red Mismatch number shows the mismatch between tracked model and video in selected camera. If Mismatch number is lower (it is negative, so it has bigger absolute value), settings are better for selected camera.
