Assistance required with 3D model bust tracking

  • Hi Chunkeyninja

    So basically you only want tracking for shoulders/ head?

  • Yes Ideally a viable means of tracking just the head and the shoulders/upper chest on a 3D model without relying on tracking info for the rest of the body.,

    If this should not be possible, then simply having the body element follow the head would be fine provided it could approximate the appearance of the avatar being visible from the chest up.

  • If you just track head position but not rotation, it will pretty much align with the shoulders...unless they shift their head like a snake side to side which rarely happens lol

    I made a tutorial on this method:

    Fancier way:

    In this longer, more complex, method the Lens studio team shows how to make a bust that moves with the head but the shoulders are locked. This may be perfect for you:

  • Looks like your script will basically do what I need by the looks of things. I expected a script would probably be the solution but the sight of code generally gives me the conniptions lol.

    Thanks Brandon, huge help <3

  • What do you think of this?
    For frontcam only, it works with bone manipulation, manipulating the head more than the body

  • That looks great Lukator :) also seems a very viable option. Would you be able to give me a quick rundown on the steps to do this bone manipulation as you have please?
