Reusing Trackables??

<t>Folks,<br/> <br/> Are saved trackables (.tra files) forward compatible? <br/> <br/> We have just upgraded to a S250e system from a V100R2 setup. <br/> <br/> We'd like to reuse the trackables from our last version.

Re: Set maximum number of markers for rigid body

Re: Getting the Camera Position with TrackingTools

<t>Thanks Doug, I'll give that a shot.<br/> <br/> Just in case you are interested, we are in need of the camera locations in order to register a Total Station so we can then locate other objects in the room (but outside the tracking volume) in the same coordinate frame.

Getting the Camera Position with TrackingTools
