Hello everyone. Is it possible to use slim 13 together with prime 13 for motion capture?
Thanks in advance

Hello arslan_kzn,

The Slim 13E and Prime 13 camera can be used together.
You will just need to note that the Slim camera does not have an IR light source, so will only see active markers.

If you have any other questions, feel free to reach out to us directly.

Best,
Steven

Thank you for the response
Will slim13 track passive markers if I attach external ir light source to the camera?

My pleasure,

Yes, if there is an IR light source then the passive markers should reflect the light back to the camera and be trackable. Our LEDs strobe with the frame rate of the camera, which allows them to draw more power and illuminate farther. Using an external and continuous light source, the overall light output may be lower, and the markers may not be visible as far as on the Prime 13.

Cheers,
Steven
