Creating new markerset for skeleton

by jekasores » Fri Jan 19, 2018 12:47 pm

Hello fellows,

I would like to build my own skeleton markerset in order to just track a human arm using Motive. How could I do that? Is this option available in Motive?

Best wishes,

Hi Jessica,

Building a custom markerset is not yet supported in Motive. We do have the MarkerSet functionality, but this only allows you to make a list of marker names so you can manually label the marker data. This does not track automatically like our Skeletons and Rigid Bodies.

For the time being, you could utilize one of the upper body skeletons. Otherwise, you can try to figure out a solution using rigid bodies on the different segments, or manually labeling the data with a MarkerSet.
