To capture multiple actors, are marker ID patches required?

Hi Tobi.kenobi,

No special patches are required in order to capture multiple actors. You just need to have enough markers to use multiple of the Skeleton setups in Motive.
I suggest you read through our online documentation if you have not seen this already.

For any basic use questions, please feel free to contact Support directly.

Hi steven.andrews,

Thanks for elaborating on the multiple Skeletons use.

I actually asked because I couldn't find a clear answer in the documentation. The best I could deduce was from the unique rigid bodies section and seeing that no marker ID patches exist in the online store, but I wasn't sure. I'll contact Support directly for questions like this next time.
