Extra tips

  1. If you choose to switch sides during a fit you will need to click the calibrate button below the liveview screen every time you change sides
  2. If you wish to perform a quick fit you can use this system without calibrating. It will only offer the angular metrics so essentially has the same function as our 2D Motion system
  3. A little bit of inconsistency in the wireframe will not affect your data unless the flicker is happening at the top or bottom of the pedal stroke every time
  4. It doesn’t matter if the wireframe is out of sync with the riders motion at any point as the measurement functions are a separate process to the one that draws the wireframe. The wireframe is just an additional feature to help with visualisation
  5. If you have issues with the system at any point, please capture a sample file (detailed in Troubleshooting) and take screenshots, we will struggle to resolve your issue without good information.

Turning off webcams

The system supports webcams to capture additional views of the rider. At this stage it is not possible to use a second Kinect as a secondary camera.
You can choose from available cameras in the ‘Settings’ menu. This is useful for turning off integrated front facing webcams if they are not part of your rider capture setup.
Cameras tab on Settings window
Once you are in the capture screen you can choose which view is the primary by clicking on the tile below the liveview
We have tested with Logitech and Microsoft Webcams and recommend 1080P, 30fps models to match the image clarity of the Kinect. We have not tested wireless webcams or using the streaming video functions from mobile devices.
The video saved during a capture will be the one showing in the main view. So you can save a frontal video by running a capture with that view selected.
