Are the correct/incorrect poses mislabeled in the User Guide? The 3D skeleton and skin are set up with the palms facing the ground, but the image shows the T-Pose with the palms facing forward. I'm checking tracking with a T-Pose with Palms facing down like they are on the skeleton.

As far as the rig is concerned, it was mentioned in another post that it currently doesn't matter. The palms down for the rig is, I believe, standard for mocap programs like Motion Builder. I think it's suggested to have palms forward for the performer is because palms forward gives a clearer target to the cameras.

The reason this visual conflict between the rig and performer doesn't matter right now, as I understand it, is because iPi doesn't track wrist rotations. (Yet, I hope.)

Keep in mind that I'm not a techie or especially 'in the know', and this is just my personal guess on the subject. :)

So far I've gotten great results with palms down. Thats at 640x480 and 30 FPS. I'm currently processing a nearly identical clip at 320x240 at 30 FPS. Those are the constraints I'm stuck with on my current computer.
