It’s mandated that you use the iphone only, so in effect, you just locked out every Android user from using this tech… I was looking forward to this tech for years, now to be blocked by an over-priced crappy apple product is quite disappointing, it’s just like oculus rift mandating a facebook account!
You just locked out 75% of the global population for only 25% of iphone users from using this tech with their smartphones!
Sure you can use a webcam, but there’s plenty of people that have to then go out and buy one instead of just using what they already have, obviously I’m including myself as I don’t have a webcam, but I have an android that can shoot 4k video!
Hi! As an Android user myself I do sympathize. The current option for video mocap in our beta machinima app is using technology from Wrnch.ai which unfortunately does not support Android today. I did find this notice on their website “Android support is on our roadmap but is currently unsupported.” so it may be worth posting on their forum to let them know there is demand for it.
We are continually expanding the available extensions in Omniverse and are happy to help android based mocap solutions integrate into our platform as well.
An app called DroidCam allows you to connect an android phone as a webcam for your PC. I haven’t tried it but this may be worth a look.
