Mislabeled Marker

by TTrogdon » Wed Aug 09, 2017 3:51 pm

I have a custom marker set that I was working from in motive. I captured a trial with a camera set-up which was sub-optimal admittedly, and had markers dropping in and out during the trial. While I was working on labeling markers, I accidentally labelled a ghost marker as one of the markers in my set. After labeling this ghost marker motive integrated the two markers into becoming the same marker. I realized my mistake after the fact, but now I would like to disassociate these markers. Is this possible? I have tried to unlabel them, however both the good marker and the ghost marker drop out from my marker set label which is undesirable.

Hello TTrogdon,

Unlabeling the marker is how you can disassociate the ghost marker from your trajectory, but you will need to do this on a specified range. If you select the frame range over which the ghost marker is labeled, you can unlabel the marker over this selected range. Just be sure the Labeling Range is set to Selected/All before unlabeling.
