Tracking hand movement and simplifying path
on Aug 31, 2016 at 3:49:51 pm

So I have a pretty specific question. What I'm trying to do is track the hand movement of someone, and draw a stroke along that path. Now I have managed to track hand movement, attach the path to a null and link an emitter to the null's position with Particular. The only issue with the result I'm getting is that the line it produces isn't really straight, it's more circles on top of each other (which is exactly what it is). I suppose that what I'm looking for is a way to simplify the path and/or straighten it out.

Image of the current result I'm getting:

The reason it's so clustered is also that the hand movement is very small.

Thanks in advance for all help!
