For reasons unknown the latest TrackingTools doesn't work when changing camera illumination mode to continuous from strobed. Also it scrambles the Xpand shutter goggle emitter (based on nuvision I think?) with strobe mode. In earlier versions emitter was working fine when changing the illumination from 15 to 7.

Additionally there are some weird problems with the TrackingTools GUI when using multiple graphics cards in one pc and moving any of the TrackingTools windows to different pipe (eg. screen driven by second graphics card). It creates weird complications: for example you cannot get any actions/menus from project manager. I haven't confirmed is continuous illumination problem also because of this but what is confirmed is that this GUI glitch creates a bunch of random bugs.

Using: Windows 7 64-bit, 2x Nvidia Quadro FX5800

Another bug regarding multiple displays:
Let's assume I create a project with TrackingTools with a multi display system (=possibly 2 GPU's and for example 3 displays) and I have saved the project with the TrackingTools window moved on the secondary display. Then I close TrackingTools and disconnect all displays but one and open the project again with TrackingTools.
TrackingTools GUI system (C# I presume?) still thinks that it should create the window on the secondary display and it shows very narrow slice of the window on my primary displays right or left edge. It's impossible to move this window anywhere although I can move some floating windows from it to the center of my primary display.

I know this is a very rare case, but I noticed it when using 2 different PC's with different amount of displays for performance tests. The project was created using another PC and the camera installation didn't change during this so it would've been stupid to use different project files...

This may also be an effect of the double graphics card bug which was mentioned in the last reply...

Thanks for the heads up on the issues with the UI. The Tracking Tools product is entirely native code with no dependencies on the .NET framework. It's likely that this issue with multiple graphics cards will lie in the UI libraries we're using. Thanks for reporting.

We'll also take a close look at the illumination mode issue.
