virtual void UpdateExternalTrackingPosition

    const FTransform & ExternalTrackingTransform
)

Remarks

Called after calibration to attempt to pull the internal tracker (e.g. HMD tracking) in line with the external tracker (e.g. mocap tracker). This will set the internal tracker's base offset and rotation to match and realign the two systems. This can be called every tick, or whenever realignment is desired. Note that this may cause choppy movement if the two systems diverge relative to each other, or a big jump if called infrequently when there has been significant drift

Parameters

Welcome to the new Unreal Engine 4 Documentation site!

We're working on lots of new features including a feedback system so you can tell us how we are doing. It's not quite ready for use in the wild yet, so head over to the Documentation Feedback forum to tell us about this page or call out any issues you are encountering in the meantime.

We'll be sure to let you know when the new system is up and running.
