What is the Motion Adapter?

  • The Motion Adapter takes motion capture data from MotionTemplate, processes it, and feeds it to the Controllers.
  • There are different Motion Adapters for different types of data processing. Data processing type in turn depends on the type of motion data and the type of Controller(s) that will be used.
  • Theoretically, if there are M number of motion data types that can be tracked and N number of Controllers, a total of M*N number of Motion Adapters can exist.
  • MYTY Kit v1.0 provides 14 types of Motion Adapters prefabs to handle the more common animation scenarios.
  • There are two categories of motion adapters: Mapper and Reducer.

How to use Sprite Motion Adapters?

How to apply Motion Adapters

1. Add DefaultMotionTemplate

1) In the Project window, Select Assets > MYTYKit > MotionTemplate. Drag DefaultMotionTemplate to a blank area in the Hierarchy window.

2. Add MediapipeMotionPack

1) In the Project window, Select Assets > MYTYKit > MotionTemplate > Motion Source Samples. Drag MediapipeMotionPack to a blank area in the Hierarchy window.
2) Click the MediapipeMotionPack > MediapipeMotionSource in the Hierarchy window. Then, in the Inspector window, click the ✚ icon below the Motion Template Mapper List.
3) Set the Element 0 to the DefaultMotionTemplate GameObject.

3. Create Motion Adapter Group

1) Right-click on a blank area of the Hierarchy window, and select Create Component to create a GameObject for the MotionAdapter Group.
2) In the Inspector window, click Add Component and apply the Motion Adapter Group Script.

4. Add Motion Adapters

1) In the Project window, go to Assets > MYTYKit > MotionAdapter, click and drag the prefabs you want to apply into the MotionAdapter Group object in the Hierarchy window.
2) In the Inspector window, adjust the settings for each MotionAdapter, selecting the appropriate scripts, Controllers, and objects.
3) If nothing appears when you click the ◉ icon, it may be due to either of the following:
  1. 1.
    The DefaultMotionTemplate or the MediapipeMotionPack is not in the Hierarchy window → Check add-defaultmotiontemplate and add-mediapipemotionpack
  2. 2.
    The appropriate Script(s) are not applied to the Controller → Check 2. Create Controller
4) Click ▶️(Play) to check that Motion Tracking works as intended.
Repeat steps 1 to 4 for each bone or sprite animation.
