Setup Wizard

Setup a new project using the setup wizard

Setup Wizard Steps

The setup wizard takes you through a number of steps which create a number of assets as well as update the project settings. Following is a brief explanation of what each step does in the background.

  • Tracking -> The tracking step creates a tracking system asset and updates the existent project settings to make the newly created asset the default. This will ensure that any existent system which requires the tracking system asset will use the tracking asset created.

  • Project Setup -> The project setup step creates the project game mode, updates the project world settings to use the Existent World Settings class and creates/updates the default map.

  • Player -> The player step makes you choose the skeletal mesh your player will use, create a player blueprint and update the game mode to make the generated player blueprint the default pawn.

  • Mappings -> The mappings step generates the hand bone mappings, body bone mappings and tracker mappings asset. Based on the skeleton you are working with it will automatically update the mappings to use a set of default values.

  • Body -> The body step creates the open/close hand poses and create the animation blueprint the player blueprint will use. The animation blueprint is dynamically generated based on the body tracking system you have chosen (5 point, 3 point or hand and hands)
