Frequently Asked Questions

Please refer to Overview and Customizing Pose Tracking for common questions.

This is a common issue with inertial motion capture systems, which drift over time due to accumulated errors. To reduce the drift, make sure there are no magnetic or electrical interference near the tracking sensors.
