Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Using Vive Tracker as nDisplay Camera

Is there a way to use a Vive tracker Position and Rotation for the Camera of a nDisplay Setup?

I know i can connect trackers via VRPN so is there a way to read the Vive Tracker data from SteamVR and somehow convert it into an VRPN Device?

Product Version: UE 4.21

You would need to setup a VRPN server that uses SteamVR/OpenVR without a HMD. There are a few different blogs/articles out there on how to do this. Once you've got a VRPN server broadcasting the tracker info then UE4 should be able to connect with it. Then you'd just set up a config file that has a node using your tracker and a camera attached to that node.

I haven't set up the exact same thing as you, but I have previously put together an OpenVR VRPN server and am currently setting up nDisplay for a few different cluster systems.
