If the blue bar of the iPhone app does not disappear even if you press a button such as "Connect to Maya" and the app does not respond, you may be able to connect using one of the following methods 1) to 7).
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) Change the item of iPhone IP address to "255.255.255.255" and try executing.
This is an IP address for trying to connect to all machines on the same network.
3) If (2) fails, set Auto IP detection to "ON" and try connecting.
4) Please change the iOS Connection Type from "UDP-UDP" to "TCP-TCP" and try again.
5) Go to Settings App → iFacialMocap → Make sure Local Network permissions are turned on.
6) The IP address of the iPhone can become unstable.
Please refer to the video below and change the IP address of your iPhone from Automatic to Manual.
7 ) 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".
8)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.
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".
・ Method 2
If connection is not successful even after performing Method 1, please see the following URL and enter "TCP" "50001 port" and "UDP" "50002 port and 50003 port". Please open it.
・ Method 3
The iFacialMocap desktop app uses port 49983 on Windows/Mac to communicate with the iOS app.
If port 49983 is being used by other software, it will not be able to communicate.
To find out what software is using port 49983, close the iFacialMocap desktop app once.
Then, after that, open the Windows command prompt.
At the command prompt, type "netstat -ano" and note down the PID number of the software that is using port 49983.
Based on the PID number, identify the name of the software that is using the port and kill it.
How to find out what software is occupying port 49983 is complicated, so please refer to the following article.
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.
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.
Please refer to the following page and try resetting the Preference in Maya.
If the following message appears even though you have configured the firewall settings and pressed the "wait connection" button, port 50001 may be being used by other software that is blocking communication. Please change the destination port to a port other than 50001.
