The Camera

Which one to choose?

It is always worth to trying any camera you actually have, before you go and buy another!

Please bear in mind, that the basic, unmodified cameras, never get the best performance when compared to 75 frames per second with PS3 Eye Camera.

This is the defining factor that is most important if you need very smooth movement translation into your favourite game.

There are many (recommended) cameras which will work great as a tracking receiver.

PS3 Eye Camera Driver Installation

  1. If the camera has a cap, please remove it, If not – please carry on to point 2.
  2. Make sure your antivirus software is disabled while you will be installing the camera driver !
  3. Make sure you HAVE NOT PLUGGED the camera to your USB 2.0 port yet !
  4. Install the drivers – it is the CL-Eye Test program (it includes drivers too)
  5. Reboot the system
  6. Plug in the camera, direct to your motherboard USB 2.0 socket, DO NOT USE USB Hubs – very important.
  7. Wait for the system to update the registry
  8. You are good to go to the next step

Camera Check !

After installation of the drivers please make sure your camera is working with the “CL-Eye test” it is a program installed with the drivers. More in next step.

Unmodified cameras (not bought from us, and only applies if you source the camera byself, our cameras does not need the below mod)

If you purchased DELANCLiP Gamer, or just the camera on its own, skip this step.

If you have bought a set with the camera from us – you can skip this step as it’ll already be done for you!

If you will use unmodified camera you have sourced it from somewhere else, make sure you have already fitted the 2 pieces of the transparent coloured film enclosed with the DELANCLiP on the top of the lens of your camera.

If you use your own (modified) camera without an IR filter – it is a must to use a bit of film from floppy disk drive, otherwhise the camera will not function properly for head tracking.

CL-Eye Test

This is built-in software delivered with the PS3 Eye camera PC drivers. You need to go to Menu and from DEVICES choose PS3 Eye Camera before you will be able to change anything. Then go to OPTIONS and click VIDEO CAPTURE FILTER to open the window; example in right side of this screenshot. Please use it to pre-set your camera threshold before you go to set up the threshold in FaceTrackNoIR. Please set your gain and exposure to get the results as similar to the video guide as you can.

Please note – if you are not satisfied with the LED dots size in your head tracking software you should remove the IR filter from your PS3 Eye camera. We do not guarantee perfect results until you have dedicated and properly modified camera.

Please view the below images for the idea of how to mount DelanClip.
