Hi everyone,

I'm new and setting up my PS Eye Cameras in my basement. I'm wondering if it is better to setup 4 PS Eyes cameras where the actor's body is fully in view or 6 PS Eye cameras where 4 cameras will see the full body and 2 cameras will see on parts of the body? Is the partial camera helpful in this scenario? or should I eliminate it to avoid getting the software confused?

It's better to avoid cameras which do not see the whole body. Even if for some reason you cannot position all 6 cameras in a circle so they all see an actor, you can still benefit from additional cameras. For instance, you can place 2x cameras at the same location in a room where an actor is fully visible but at much different heights. Or (depending on available height) even placing additional cameras at the ceiling looking down - this is especially helpful for crouching and crawling.

That sounds great. I'm planning to mount 4 towards the ceiling and two at below mid level. Is it ok to mount the 4 ceiling cameras upside down? Thanks.

Yes, camera orientation doesn't matter for RGB tracking.
However, for your convenience there is an option for PS Eye to switch camera frame upside down thus producing non-inverted picture. Look in the toolbar at Setup screen.
