Hi, Thank you for taking the time to put together this feedback!
.1. We have raised a bug report to our engineers to investigate the pause tracking behaviour. I have included an explanation of the current behaviour below but this is quite lengthy, my apologies!
What we have found is that is the tracking data is not being consumed, by the visualiser or an application for example, then the tracking is in an idle state and does not pause. If you have the visualiser open and running and then press pause tracking, the tracking will be paused as it is being used by the visualiser and is an active state. Additionally if you pause the tracking the setting does not persist, that means that if you were to close the visualiser and reopen it the tracking doesn't remain paused.
This has been raised to our engineers to investigate this behaviour and improve it. To help us to design this part of the software better please can you tell me about the behaviour that you are expecting to see here? The tracking software does not track unless there is a client (ie. visualiser or an application) connected and asking for tracking data. When you pause the tracking are you wishingfor the tracking service to be stopped altogether?
.2. Calibration was removed as it was confusing users who where trying to use it to achieve incremental improvements on their hand tracking perforamance. Calibrating the device only has an impact on tracking performance if there are severe issues with the function of the camera and will not improve the tracking performance if tracking is already functional. There are many more things to look at before calibration such as distance from camera, angle of hand, background, lighting, reflections, and the cleanliness of the screen to name a few.
.3, 4. The visualiser can display all three modes, VR Desktop and Above Facing User however currently if a VR headset is detected then the tracking mode will be automatically set to VR. We are looking into this behaviour to improve it. Thank you for this feedback!
.5. Navigating the visualiser remains the same as in V4 but if you have a VR headset connected then unfortunately this will be locked to VR mode. As above, we are going to improve this
.6. Our tracking software is agnostic to whether or not you are connected to the internet, I have just tested this out to be sure! What happens when you disconnected from the internet? Do you see any errors? Are you using any particular apps?
Thank you again for all of this feedback, this is really useful to help us polish a couple of the remaining rough edges
