Hi, I would like to move fingers of the avatar with data from a DATAGLOVE. Someone knows How could I do?
I know to move a hand model but not the fingers of the avatar.
Thank you very much.

which glove do you use and which avatar model?

one way to do this is to use the glove with Motionbuilder (most glove companies provide a Motionbuilder plug-in) and then use Vizard Live Characters.

this requires Autodesk Motionbuilder and then the Worldviz Live Characters plugin

all best,

Hi Matthias,
I have a 5DT Dataglove and I want to animate the hand of vcc_male of Vizard, without Autodesk Motionbuilder.
It is possible?
Thank you very much

Yes, this should be possible. Does the following work for you?
avatar = viz.add('vcc_male.cfg')

PORT_5DT_USB = 0 #Connect to first USB device
rightGlove = viz.add('5dt.dls')

import hand
rhand = hand.AvatarHandModel( avatar, sensor = rightGlove )
#lhand = hand.AvatarHandModel( avatar, sensor = sensor, left = True )

Someone knows if it's possible some kind of calibration of 5dt DATAGLOVE in vizard?
