hello

I want to use the camera sdk to write a program,In this Program I want to achive the function that can get the data of the rigid body.and it can build the rigid body by yourself.In other words,I want to integration the Motive with my program.In this way ,I can use one program to control my system,because I don't want to open two software when I use optitrack.
Are there some methods I can achive my idea?
Thank you a lot.

Hello Dsong,

Thanks for reaching out to the community regarding your use case.
The Camera SDK only gives access to the 2D camera images, and will not provide any kind of 6 DOF tracking. When using the Camera SDK, it is necessary to develop your own calibration and tracking algorithms.

You may be interested in developing with the Motive API. This would allow you to develop a single application that integrates some Motive control with access to the Rigid Bodies.

Best,
Steven
