hi-saw this thread/thought maybe you could offer some help (tried on ni-mate forum, not too much going on)–
here is my test:
Can someone give me some tips re better motion control on this? it seems almost impossible to control the direction in the viewport once ni-mate is running…this is blender2.61 + ni-mate 0.93–after lots of messing up, i decided to use the rig from the ‘bunny’ example with a few simplifications–so why does the torso bend so erratically? the only changes i have made are to the mesh/skin, really nothing else (followed the tutorial closely,too). any tips? anyone? thanks. (i did work with different distances fr the kinect, and even when further for better view of feet i get these distortions too).
