Our motion capture suits are Inertia based and use Earth's natural electromagnetic field to orient themselves. This is similar to how a compass works. Because of this, the sensors are sensitive to magnetic interference. Therefore it is important to properly prepare your space ahead of time.
First, check for magnetic interference. You can do this with a magnetometer, there are plenty of free magnometer apps you can download on your phone and use. Aim for between 40 - 50 microteslas, too high or too low can affect the sensor's accuracy. Make sure you check the entire performance space.
The sensors should avoid contact with anything that could cause interference such as magnetic objects and electronics. Make sure that the sensors are stored in the antimag box they came with when not in use. During shoots, avoid having the actor touch their phone or computer, especially if using finger sensors. If you are running a one man operation, we suggest using a wired mouse and keyboard to reduce interference.
If the sensors do become magnetized, run a magnetic calibration to reset them.
If you need to record in a location with a lot of interference, turn on the anti-mag mode for best results.
