Calibration Cube

If your studio origin is within the view of the talentS camera, you may not need to use a calibration cube at all. The only thing you have to do is to right-click to define the studio origin through the talentS interface.
Calibration Cube is a measuring tool you can use for calibration. You have to use the Calibration Cube tool if your studio origin is located outside the field of view (FOV) of the camera's left lens.
Any box can be a calibration cube, including a rectangular prism such as a cardboard box.
The main goal is to match the position and align the axes of the virtual calibration box with the physical calibration cube.
The example image above shows that the studio origin is outside of the talentS camera stereoscopic view.

Calibration Procedure

  • Measure your physical calibration cube’s X, Y, and Z dimensions in centimeters
  • According to your measurement, go to Calibration Cube > Advanced and enter the Size X, Size Y, and Size Z properties.
  • Locate your physical calibration cube inside your studio within the talentS camera stereoscopic view.
  • Align the calibration cube axes parallel to your studio axes.
  • Find the intersection point between your studio origin and calibration cube origin, as shown in the image above
  • Go to the talentS user interface, open the Calibration property group
  • Define the Position X and Position Y values per your measurements as shown in the previous image above
Suppose your studio origin and calibration cube origin are the same. In that case, your Position X and Position Y values are equal to zero.

Matching Calibration Cubes

After successfully finishing the steps mentioned earlier, the following phase is matching the virtual calibration cube with the physical calibration cube. Before you begin, make sure that you are operating inside the Tracking Camera Viewport.
To operate inside the Tracking Camera Viewport, left-click with your mouse anywhere inside it.
  • Hover your mouse over the physical calibration cube’s origin and right-click. This action moves the virtual calibration cube’s origin point to the desired location.
  • Fine-tune minor details by holding the right mouse button and moving the cursor.
