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"

Get motion controller position in real world

What is the best way to get the position of a tracked object (i.e controller) in real world space relative to the play space center? I am aware that I could get tracker use the Get Tracked Device Position And Orientation method from the steam vr function library but I wonder is there a more efficient way since the controllers are already tracked. Consider the vr demo project which has the vr hands, would there be a way to gain this location info by getting the hand relative location to the player pawn?

It is based on a study for university. I am taking a snapshot of a persons position when a certain action occurs in game so that I can spot trends in behavior.
