  5. The Express Mode you calibrated will be saved as a captured pose called EXPRESS under your selected profile. Each time you click Calibrate Express it will reset the Express Mode calibration pose saved under the selected profile.

    This EXPRESS pose can be used in Express Mode or in combination with other additional captured poses in Hybrid Mode. See here for Hybrid Mode documentation. Express mode will not work for Blend Mode or Pose Detection.

Adjusting the Time for Express Calibration Capture

The Express Calibration mode can have its calibration time adjusted. To do that, click on Preferences from the top left, then set your preferred time for the Express Capture (seconds) from the Application Setting popup.
