Trying something for future streams (controller capture) (Destiny)

So, I need to build a controller play capture setup for developing my own games (lets me see what complications/hand movements are needed, a heatmap of controller use over time, etc) and decided to try one of the many controller view options out there.


So this is me playing a match on PC with a PS4 controller.

I also did a version from another match with an actual video feed with a mini-camera someone got me for christmas right here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OaFmrYdaQCA The physical view is most useful to me, but part of the issue is remembering to keep the controllers in the camera's "box" so that you can actually see my hands. the 2D does show all inputs but can't show situations where I have to claw or other situations. I might try to get both done at the same time, but would like to figure out the having to keep my controller in a specific spot issue (controller mounted super light camera??)

I wonder if you could get one of the mounts for cell phones that clamp to a PS4 controller and then use one of the longer GoPro flexible mounts to attach to that. Not sure how much weight that add, but if you get it balanced right, it might not be too bad.

that might work. Besides weight, the whole thing can't be too high, or i'd just bonk myself in the chest during more intense moments, so i'm thinking a wide FOV cam would definitely be needed so that you can get closer.
