A collection of the most frequently asked questions about the Coil Pro.
🔘 What happens if I move out of the Coil Pro capture space?
If using both Smartgloves and a Smartsuit, the IMU sensors of the suit will take over to calculate your world position when you leave the capture space, so that there is as little disruption to your recording as possible. If using only Smartgloves, your world position will be locked to their last known position before you left the Coil's capture space. For optimal performance we recommend staying within the capture area while recording a scene. You can find more details on the Coil Pro capture space here.
🔘 What do the different lights/colours on top of the Coil Pro mean?
🔘 Can I use the elevation tracking feature with the Coil Pro?
🔘 How do I update to the latest Coil Pro firmware?
It's a good idea to check for a firmware update every now and then. To do so, use the red USB A to C cable that came with your Coil Pro to connect it to your PC. Open Rokoko Studio, and if a firmware update is available, a pop up window will appear prompting you to update.
Calibrating your actor with the Coil Pro is the same process as calibrating without a Coil Pro. Simply assume the position shown in Studio. However, if you are multiple actors in a space, ensure that each person is facing the same direction when calibrating. More information on calibrating can be found here.
The Coil Pro's magnetic field emits a frequency that is below most other common household devices. For further reading, we have compiled this comprehensive guide that runs through the compliance and safety standards of the Coil Pro.
The Coil Pro's magnetic field strength is as follows:
Conditions: Field strength is measured 1 metre away from the centre of the Coil Pro.
Its frequency is:
X: 20333 Hz
Y: 20667 Hz
Z: 21000 Hz
The maximum power consumption of the Coil is 12W.
Conditions: 12VDC supply
Connecting multiple devices in Studio will depend on the calculation power of your PC, and also your WiFi router’s specs. You can view our recommendations here, and our router recommendations here. However, there is a high risk of WiFi lag when connecting more than three actors to Rokoko Studio at a time, with or without the Coil Pro.
