Hi, I’m currently interested in using Nuitrack for sitting posture-correcting purposes.
I’ve watched videos on Youtube of how Nuitrack works,
and I am aware that Nuitrack is not intended 100% for the purpose I’m interested.
However because Nuitrack doesn’t use markers for tracking, I am willing to use it for my research.
Anyway, I have three questions -
Can I track a person sitting in a chair?
I am willing to use the upper body only. Can I set the program running so that it tracks only the upper parts of the body? edit: also, will it differenciate the person and the chair?
Can I add more joints to the person?
It looks like that the skeletons that come out in the demo videos have the same joint configuration. I would like to ADD more joints to the spine, so that I can get more info out of it. Would this be possible? If so, would this be a good idea to track the person’s spine more accurately? Or is there a better idea for this?
What angle should I set the camera?
All of the video demos I’ve watched so far have set the camera angle to face the front of the person DIRECTLY.
I would like to capture info from the rear or the side of the person, to get a better view of the person’s back.
I’m also thinking of putting the camera at an angle positioning downwards, like a bird eye’s view.
Does Nuitrack work for these kind of camera placement?
