Camera Settings

Note: It is not necessary to change the camera settings for most tracking scenarios.

The settings can be accessed from the 2D camera view by pressing the

button. Reasons for changing the camera settings include:

  • Interfering light: The most common case for changing the settings is to filter out interfering light. For small points/regions of static interfering light, it's often easier to crop out a small area of the camera view instead of changing the camera settings.

  • Large tracking area

  • Fast moving markers

The two camera settings that can be changed are:

  • Threshold: PPT Studio will ignore all pixels below the threshold within the camera view when searching for a marker light. The default value is 220.

  • Gain: The gain setting is a multiplier to the camera signal. The default value is 0.

Adjusting the Camera Settings

The following table shows the settings to use for different tracking scenarios. After changing one camera's settings, right click on that camera's view and select Copy settings to all. For irregular setups or setups with ambient lighting, it maybe necessary to adjust each camera individually.
