NatNet: Take name in Unity

Post by norbert » Thu Apr 12, 2018 9:20 am

Is there a way to extract the current recording or playback take name out of the NatNetClient in Unity OptitrackClient?

I managed to extract the frame number (sFrameOfMocapData.iFrame) but I would also like to have the take name.

Thanks for any advice.

Hello norbert,

Using the NatNet remote commands it is possible to set certain properties, such as the current recording take name, but it is not currently possible to retrieve the take name. Information for this type of NatNet functionality can be found in our remote commands documentation.

It is possible to adjust your Motive stream settings so that a UDP recording trigger is broadcast when recordings start and stop. Perhaps you could set this, and listen for the recording triggers in order to pull the take name information.
