Accessing Object Information upon Exporting

Post by Asa_E-E » Mon Jul 02, 2012 5:35 pm

Hello

I am currently working on using an s250e camera as a part of an optical force sensor. As a part of this project, I need information on the objects as seen by the camera, such as Object Size, Roundness, etc. I have found where I set this information to display in the Tracking Tools window, but I cannot find a way to export that data for each frame.

Any help with this would be very much appreciated.

It appears that there is no way to access this information through the GUI. From the response I recieved from OptiTrack Support:

"Unfortunately, not with the GUI. You could run Tracking Tools through the TTAPI, which would give you access to the 2d data which you could then record in your own export method, but it would require some development on your end to make that work appropriately."

That is correct. The Tracking Tools API would be able to give you everything you are looking for, and allow other functions such as backprojecting 3d locations onto 2d fields of view. It's the best blend of the raw SDK and the functionality of the GUI.
