Re: USB 2.0 or 3.0?

Hello Ian. It's better to use USB 2.0 for the USB camera system. USB 3.0 protocol has a more strict limitation on the allowed cable length (~3 meter) compared to USB 2.0 (~5 meter) which could negatively affect the camera setup and result in dropped data. For this reason, use of USB 2.0 port is rec...

Re: Stuttering/Erratic movement

Hello, It looks like this is happening when you turn the head 90 degrees, or more, to look straight towards the right. At this point, the software might get confused in determining the orientation because the markers form a symmetrical shape in the captured frame. I believe this is what's happening ...

Re: how to zoom out and save it?

Hello, Have you tried re-centering the position while you are in the game? By default, the hotkey for this is F12. Also, it looks like there is zoom-in and zoom-out features in Prepare3D.

Re: TrackIr5 device not connected

Hello, Does the device get properly recognized in the Device Manager in Windows? If the driver is properly installed, it should get listed under NaturalPoint group. You could also try removing some of the registries after uninstalling the software and before reinstalling it. That might resolve the i...

Re: Tracker Glitching When Looking Down

If you right click on the viewport and select Camera View, you should be able to monitor the reflections that the camera sees. Green dots indicate reflections that are contributing to the tracking, and the red dots are the reflections that are not contributing to tracking. As you move your head up a...

Re: Getting data from flex13 cameras

Hello Ohanoch, NatNet SDK includes the client class for connecting to the tracking server (Motive), receiving tracking data, sending remote commands, and more. The NatNet SDK can be downloaded for free, however, it can connect to OptiTrack server only. So, you will need to have Motive (Motive:Tracke...

Re: Motive API Questions

Hello filwit, First of all, I apologize for the late response and thank you for your feedback. To answer your question, the absence of the default constructor was not intentional. It must have been missed when the rigid body settings class was added to the NPTrackingTools library. It was probably no...

Re: Making sense of times

Hello tobi, Which version of NatNet/Motive are you using? In NatNet 2.10, the fLatency value in the frame of data reports the estimated software processing latency, which is the time between when Motive receives the frame data and when they are all processed and ready to be streamed out. (Before Nat...
