Hello Soukaina,

Thank you for reaching out to the community regarding your use of the Camera SDK.

To start, you can look through the documentation we provide for the Camera SDK. This will give you information on how to get going with the SDK.
http://wiki.optitrack.com/index.php?title=Camera_SDK

For the OpenCV integration you will need to reach out to the OpenCV team. This is not something we have developed, nor are we experts with that portion. The Camera SDK sample we provide should work out of the box, and it will be on you to determine how to port this over to the external application.

Best,
Steven

Thanks Soukaina,

If you are trying to do the same thing that is shown in the YouTube video, you will need Motive. This software is what allows you to calibrate the cameras and perform full body tracking.
You will need to have purchased a license for Motive.
http://optitrack.com/products/motive/body/


The Camera SDK is a free SDK that allows you to develop your own applications. This will not give you object tracking without a considerable amount of development.

I hope this helps to point you in the right direction. For further information on Motive and how to utilize it you can check our online documentation.

Hey Steven,
thanks again for your time,

for more clarification, my teacher required me to not work with motive , generally a software which can do the same things

So he insist to work with OpenCv + Visual Studio 2015 and Unity 3D

Now i try to compile existing program of Optitrack "MJPEG Viewer" but i found error of CameraLibrary2008S.dll. what would you advise me to do?

Sorry again for bothering you

Regards
Soukaina

Thanks for the clarification and the update Soukaina,

For the OpenCV portion, I am afraid you are on your own. Hopefully another familiar user will be able to post something useful for you, but I am not familiar with that software.

Cheers,
Steven
