Motion Builder 2012 Rigid Body

by Wintg005 » Thu May 10, 2012 7:48 am

We got the plug in updated but for some reason Im no longer able to create a rigid body from optical markers. The menu for optical no longer comes up. Do you have any idea why this might be? Thanks!

I guess from what I have read, in MotionBuilder 2012 I am not able to create a rigid body from real time marker data?

Are you streaming from Tracking Tools or Arena?

Im using the universal connection option due to us having a different system in the volume. Normally in 2011 we would just build a rigid body from the optical menu but that optical menu is no longer showing up in 2012

In Mobu 2012 I'll create a rigid body by selecting the opticals, then selecting "add" from the rigid body tab on the optical panel.

Here's a video detailing the process in Tracking Tools / Mobu 2013. The vid shows how to use it both in Universal and Standard modes of our plugin:

The Rigid body creation process is the same for Mobu 2012.

hope this helps,

Morgan

or Im I going mad, I would love to use the new MotionBuilder video output for the VCS.

I have the same version as in the video, VCS 1.4.1

Any Ideas?

Hey Don,

The Mobu 2013 plugin is still in beta - we're hoping to release this month after the Arena 1.8.1 Final posts.

Will shoot you a mail as soon as it does.

Hey Don -

Morgan was right on the money here, it should be on the table as soon as Arena 1.8.1 and Tracking Tools 2.5.0 go final (they are still posted as beta-2 at the moment). As soon as it comes available, we'll make sure to let you know.
