    Quick Opentrack Question

    Maybe there is no fix to this and I cant have it both ways but here goes anyway...

    When I turn my head (yaw or pitch), my viewpoint translates on the Z axis unless I am already centred on Z over the seat and default position. Really annoying when tracking a target and turning/looping. I can stop this annoying effect by ticking the Disable Z axis Compensation Option (Trackhat Opentrack) but what this then means is I have to move forward to increase my FOV when checking my 6. I just cant get used to this (moving forward to move back) in the heat of an engagement.
    Is there a fix for this in either Trackhat Opentrack or standard Opentrack (preferred)? Many thanks for any tips

    I used Opentrack before transitioning to TrackIR.
    If I remember correctly you can set the sensitivity curves at will.
    Did you try to flatten the Z axis curve?

    Hi there. I have set large dead zones in the Z axis, to keep me centred over the seat most of the time (and I really need to lean in or out to translate in Z axis). This prevents unwanted Z translation most of the time when rotating up/around (RX/RY) but I really dont like big dead zones, as it makes it seem "jumpy" when the curve engages. I will experiment with flat Z curves for low movement instead of dead zones. I also have asked the author of Opentrack on the Github forum. If I get anything useful back I will post it here

    Many thanks

    If you understand french you can check this video out https://youtu.be/g4F7z6lh_PE

    First half or so is on how to build a DIY tracker, and second half goes about how to best set Opentrack up with some good hints.

    Also you can try this Opentrack .ini file which the guy who did this video prepared for CLOD. This is the setting I was using and it worked fine with me.
