Hi Christian,


I also notice that VMD gets stalled when writing something to the console
while it's still doing something else. Like entering a command while vmd is
still wrapping f.i. So you might want to add a delay between your writes of
the rotation matrix and see if this solves it.


But, actually I don't really understand your problem description as you say
you send data to oculus rift, but seem to write data to vmd. So could you
please explain more detailed what exactly you do and how you call your C

Betreff: vmd-l: Oculus Rift DK2


Hey you all !

I made a small C Programm , sending the head coordinates (rotation matrix
and scale matrix) to the oculus rift. Well this works, i execute .>

   molinfo top set {rotate_matrix] {{{....}}}

works yes. but after some time (1 Minute or so ) the vmd gets stalled ,seems
(only seems) to me that vmd is setting to much of roation and scale matrices
so it get stalled, Am i right ( i dont hope so) or does anybody have a
better idea to send the coordniates to vmd. ???

thank you
