Vive Hand Tracking

Vive Hand Tracking supports hand tracking on HTC Vive headsets.

Prerequisites

Humanoid Control

Vive Hand Tracking is supported in Humanoid Control Plus and Pro.

Unity

Humanoid Control v3 supports Unity 2017.4 LTS up to Unity 2019.3

Unity 2020.1 and higher are currently not supported because of the unclear situation between the new Unity XR and OpenVR.

Hardware

HTC Vive headsets like Vive Pre, Vive Pro and normal Vive are supported.

Setup

Vive Hand tracking requires the OpenVR setup as described here.

Additionally, the Vive Hand Tracking SDK version 0.9 or higher is required. You can download it here: Vive Hand Tracking SDK.

The Unitypackage found in the SDK needs to be imported in the project. The package is detected automatically. When is has been recognized, an additional Hand Tracking option should appear in the Humanoid Control component under the OpenVR device:

With this checkbox, the hand tracking can be enabled. No further setup is necessary.
