You must have roomscale tracking for your head and hands (You should be able to move freely around your room). Amethyst is only for lower body tracking. Amethyst can only track your legs, waist, and elbows. It supports all VR headsets that work with SteamVR, and the Meta Quest series of headsets.
When using Kinect, you should stand at least 6 feet (2 meters) away from the sensor and have it at head height pointing down at you. You should be standing 9 feet (3 meters) away for the best tracking.

- owoTrack (Also mostly for overrides)
