Training vids/ebook for using Arena - interested?

Post by The_Nomad » Mon May 02, 2011 10:39 am

Hey, guys!

Quick question for the Forum Denizens: I'm currently putting together training videos for a variety of 3Dish topics. We've also been using Optitrack Arena for getting on for two years, and we've uncovered a lot of gotchas that I see plaguing other people on the forums.

I'm not trying to replace the Optitrack guys and the excellent work they do here, but I'm wondering if people would be interested in some reasonably-priced training materials from the PoV of a company that's been doing this for a while, covering calibration, getting the best capture, best practises for avoiding and fixing capture errors, how to capture awkward scenes (we've had multiple fight scenes, stuff with people lying on the ground, kisses, people in armour, all kinds of things)?

Let me know!

(Oh, and NaturalPoint guys - hope this is OK to ask! Feel free to move or delete if not.)

I think that sounds pretty cool! I don't think we'd have an issue if you wanted to release some OptiTrack tuts.

Thanks, guys - interesting to hear!

I'm considering a bunch of projects right now - I'll add it to the possibles list.

If anyone else is interested - do comment, the more demand the more likely it is to happen!
