Animaze Desktop: How can I use the iPhone as a tracker?

We strongly recommend using your iPhone as your facial tracking camera. iPhone X and higher have a lense that measures depth in addition to the visual landmarks. In all cases, using your iPhone as a tracker reduces the strain on your PC, leaving more resources for your stream and games. There are two ways through which you can pair your iPhone with your PC: via a Wi-Fi / LAN connection and via a USB Connection. Use the Animaze App on your iPhone to pair with your PC by following the steps below:

a. Via Wi-Fi / LAN:

  1. In Animaze Desktop, go to Account > iPhone Tracking.

  2. Click on “Start Connection”.
