Head Target

→ Head Target API


Depending on the selected Inputs in Humanoid Control, a number of Controllers are available for the Head Target. These can be individually enabled or disabled to suit your needs. For example you can disable head tracking using Kinect while still have body tracking on other parts of the body.

First Person Camera

When this controller is enabled, a camera will be attached to the head of the avatar at eye level. When virtual reality is enabled, the camera will be controlled by the headset.

The location of the camera on the head can be changed in the scene view. The position will be reset to the eyes location when the First Person Camera is disabled and enabled again.

Other controllers

Sub Targets (Pro)
