Q. iOS app does not respond when pressing "Connect to Maya" etc.


If you press a button such as "Connect to Maya" and the blue bar in the iPhone app doesn't go away and the app doesn't respond, here's what you can do

 

1)Please try Connect and Disconnect a few times, restarting the app, restarting your smartphone, or restarting your PC.

   (In particular, if the red bar is displayed at startup, you need to restart the smartphone itself.)

 

2) Please change the iOS Connection Type from "UDP-UDP" to "TCP-TCP" and try again.

 

 

3)iPhone settings → Wi-Fi → Tap the Wi-Fi (i) mark you are using → Configure IP

    Please proceed in the order of and change the setting of "Automatic" to "BootP".

 4)If the above doesn't work, please try the following

 

On Windows, start a command prompt.

On Mac, launch the terminal.

Send a ping command to the IP address displayed in the iOS app, such as "ping 192.168.1.3" at a command prompt or terminal.
 
If you are not able to connect via ping, your router may not allow communication between the devices.
Please contact the manufacturer of the router to the effect that "the ping command does not work" and confirm how to change the router settings.

 

 
Since there is a blocking issue with the router when connecting to Wi-Fi, we plan to support Bluetooth connectivity in future updates to allow connectivity via Bluetooth. Until then, it will be affected by the router settings.

Q. iOS app responds but connection does not work


The connection may be blocked by the OS firewall.

Try the following:

 

・ Method 1

Please visit the following URL and check "Private" of "iFacialMocap" and "Maya / Unity / Blender" from "Allow application by Windows Firewall".

Q. The sample data works in Unity, but when I import a model made by Maya, I can't move it.


When you import data created in Maya into Unity, the name of the BlendShape node is prefixed to the name of the BlendShape node.

The name of the BlendShape that I created in Maya as "eyeBlinkLeft" is now In Unity, it's named something like "blendShape5.eyeBlinkLeft". It will be replaced.

 

In iFacialMocap, the BlendShape name must match exactly, otherwise it won't work.

So, in the BlendShapeTargetSettings, the "prefix" field is set to If you write a name like "blendShape5." and get it working.

Q. If it doesn't work with your own app built with Unity


On a normal build, Unity won't work if it's inactive.

 

If you press the "Connect to Unity" button of iFacialMocap, the active window will move from Unity to the iFacialMocap side, so you need to tap the Unity screen.

 

Alternatively, if you turn on the "Edit"-> "Project Settings"-> "Run in Background" item in the settings before building, Unity will work even in the inactive state.In addition, the order of launching the apps is also important, and it will not work unless iFacialMocap on the PC side is started before the Unity-made self-made app.

Q. Other cases of strange behavior


The PC side of the iFacialMocap software has a mode called debugMode.

If you turn on debug mode and then press buttons or other actions, error messages may appear in the debug mode window.

If you send us this message when you contact us, we may be able to help you with the problem.
