Re: Natural Point erratic tracking problems

<t>Yes. It shows different amounts of grey light and the green dot jumps about as before. Sometimes, when the lighting is lower, the filter control will take out the ambient light, but that doesn't necessarily mean it will pick up the reflective strip - often it can't pick that up at all, regardless...

Re: Natural Point erratic tracking problems

<t>I've been working with the lighting and conditions of my room since your last post. I am now at the point where the tracker is so unstable it is unusable. Even in low to no light conditions, it doesn't always work. Or it will work for a while. I've pretty much abandoned using it, in favour of the...

Re: Natural Point erratic tracking problems

Well, it's erratic. Sometimes it's usable. My real issue is during the day. As I mentioned on earlier posts, its is completely unusable in natural light.

Re: Natural Point erratic tracking problems

<t>I thought I had used a different light in the old room. Turns out is was the same one, placed in the same position. As an experiement I rolled back to the software version I used in the first place 3.20.034. Same problems. Ok in the dark, with overhead light etc. Open the blinds or turn on the si...

Re: Natural Point erratic tracking problems

That kind of explains things. Turning the light off seems to sort the problem - the tracking tab looks good. But obviously this makes PC use difficult. For evening use, I will try it with a 'normal' desk light. My real issue now it during the day. The natural light drives it crazy.

Re: Natural Point erratic tracking problems

<t>A small desktop light, kind of like a halogen light. I have it to the right and behind the monitor / tracking camera, facing the ceiling. <br/> <br/> Something that occured to me. In the old room/setup, in the few months before moving to the present room, I had to angle the camera to the left in ...

Re: Natural Point erratic tracking problems

<t>The window is to the right of the screen as I look at it. I have moved the camera a few times without success. It is a small room with limited options. I have moved rooms since first installing natural point, from one without an external window, and therefore little direct sunlight - though the p...

Natural Point erratic tracking problems

<t>I've had natural point for about 3 years. In the last few months, it has become increasingly erratic. The cursor tends to jump around the screen. It usually starts okay, and then gets quickly worse; often it is unusable. Checking the tracking tab shows that the camera sometimes picks up light sou...
