Extreme erratic movement

by etherealphenix » Wed Jan 03, 2018 8:27 am

My trackir 5 was working fine last night. I got up this morning and went to use it again and the camera is spiraling both vertically and horizontally on its own. F12 for center is not correcting it. I unplugged it, i reinstalled software and drivers but nothing changes the end result.

Is there anything weird you see in the camera view? Ideally, it should only see the three markers on the clip, and it should continue to be tracked throughout the range of motion. What TrackIR perceives to be markers on the clip will be colored in green, and all other noise reflections will be in red. I would suggest monitoring the camera view and make sure nothing weird is happening.
