Camera sync

Post by kelmer » Wed Jun 15, 2011 8:27 am

Hi

I'm using three cameras for a real-time motion capture project, and I need to do temporal correspondence. From what I gathered, this is only possible with camera synchronisation in order to use all three frames to perform the temporal correspondence (any monocular algorithms for temporal correspondence?).

Is this possible with TrackIR:4 PRO?

Hello -

V120 Slim or V100R2 cameras would be the best options for this, due to the capability to use a hardware sync connection, in addition to the higher resolution and additional tracking modes. The TrackIR4 will work properly with the Camera SDK, however we do not guarantee technical support for this use.

I'm using this SDK according to the DOCs:


NaturalPoint
OptiTrack API
Version: 1.83
For SDK Version 1.1.037
Date: 01/14/2010


Is this the Camera SDK you mean?

The version of the SDK you list in your post is the old OptiTrack COM SDK. It has been replaced by the new OptiTrack Camera SDK :

I guess I'll have to switch to that SDK... although it comes with little to none documentation.

Thank you.

Is the SDK version I posted still online? I can't find it on the website and would like to get ahold of it...

Thanks
