Saving data for plot in matlab

Post by frodo_jedi » Sun Mar 20, 2011 5:26 pm

Hello,
I'm a beginner with optitrack and tracking tools....I have a very basic question.
I need to save the data of the x, y and z coordinates relative to a trackable, in order to use those data for a plot in Matlab.

Could you please tell me how to do this?


Thanks in advance

If you're looking to save data for import, you can capture your trackable and export the data to CSV by clicking on file > export. The individual columns of the resulting spreadsheet should be the x, y, and z coordinants of the markers, with rows representing frames.

Streaming is also a possibility, however it would require use of our SDKs.
