Streaming sizes of other (unlabeled) markers via NatNet

Post by dbs0412247 » Fri Aug 22, 2014 2:47 am

Hi all,

The aim of my project is to track a larger moving marker of a fixed size along with other markers and possibly a few rigid bodies.

From what I could understand from studying the NatNet SDK (v. 2.6), it's possible to obtain the sizes of labeled markers but not other, unlabeled markers. If I'm wrong on this, please kindly provide a solution.

Thanks in advance

This is correct - marker size information is currently only available for labeled markers.

Possibly a solution here would be to create a rigid body for your markers in order obtain label and size information. RigidBodies have a deflection parameter that allow them to be quite deformable before losing tracking.
