This document will take you through the steps of setting up the Hybrid mode in Hand Engine, allowing you to capture the lifelike movements afforded by blend mode as well as being able to snap to key poses when handling props for example.
Operating System: Windows 10.
Setting up the Hybrid Mode
1 - Calibrate your MoCap Pro gloves (see a video example of the Performance library calibration).
2 - Go to Captured Poses and enable the Key tickbox (1) for your preferred poses, then set the confidence level (2) for them.
Note: You will need to enable a minimum of two differently named key poses for the Hybrid mode to work.
3- Click on Train Hybrid to apply your changes and turn the Preview on.
Note: You can adjust the confidence sliding bar until it fits your desired outcome, and make sure to click on Train Hybrid when new changes have been made. The lower the Confidence (to the left), the more aggressively it will snap to the Key pose.
4 - You can adjust the Duration sliding bar in the Settings box in order to make the pose detection transition animation look smoother.
