Gestureworks Visualizer 1.1

  • Added “pressure” visualization for 2D and 3D points. For 3D points (LEAP), pressure increases as points move along the z-axis away from the user.
  • Added “shadow sense” for LEAP. When a point's z value is negative, it appears as a “shadow” and doesn't register with hit tests. Once it crosses the z=0 plane, it becomes a “real” point and acts like a 2D point. As it continues to move forward, its “pressure” value increases.
  • Allow for n-LEAP points

Version 1.0
