Opentrack


Recommended Posts

Hey there,

 

I was wondering if anyone has tried opentrack? I don't want to spend $270 (Canadian Dollars) on a head tracking tool. A bit too expensive for my taste. I found this on eBay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/125FPS-FreeTrack-Camera-with-IR-LED-Track-Clip-Pro-is-compatible-to-TrackIR-5-WH-/151751230838 I was wondering if anyone tried this on ArmA and DCS? That specific model. If so how well does it work?

 

Thanks for your time, and help!

Happy Holidays!

I'm a sworn user of opentrack. Bought a used PS3 eye camera and built my own IR clip, cost me around $25.00 total. I currently only play DCS and IL2-BOS and opentrack works fine in both. Opentrack has come a long way and is continually updated by the programmer. I'll be glad to answer any questions you may have.

So I guess its worth if if I am too lazy to make my own eh.

 

How does it compare to the TrackIR 5 if you used one?

there are other thread on the forum about that.

have a look on delanclip (google it or http://www.delanengineering.com/). I've got one with a second hand ps3 eye cam and opentrack and I'm really happy with it.

I can't anderstand what an official "Trackir" can do better ;-)

And when building own IR clip, can u use cable too or how long do batteries last (which type of battery/batteries) ?

OpenTrack is brilliant. It is working perfectly. You don't need to create an IR clip you can create your clip with just normal LEDs (I used white LEDs) so in that way you don't need to mode your camera. You just need a kids broken glasses glass to darken camera picture. I don't use batteries. I have attached a USB cable. So no worries about power. This is my setup

Interesting. I use DCS World on one PC and FC, BS1 and other sims on a second one and it's a pain having to move my TrackIR across every time, due to how I have it set up.

 

I have track clip pro that I never use and I'm hoping to combine it with an old Creative webcam for head tracking. I haven't considered open track and had already decided not to bother with face track noir and freetrack because they can be a pain to set up.

 

Have to give open track a good look.
