Unable to get tracking in UE4

Post by JonathonG » Tue Jul 17, 2018 1:06 am


I am currently trying to get motion tracking working in ue4 using the OptiTrack ue4 Plugin and have been unsuccessful in getting any tracking to occur. I am using ue4 v18.3 and Motive Tracker v1.5.

I followed the wiki provided for setting up the plugin in ue4 and have been unsuccessful. Motive is running on a separate server PC and is working correctly.

In ue4 I set the server address to the ip address of the motive hosting pc, and the client address to the ip address I am working from. Otherwise my settings match the instructions listed in the tutorial wiki, so I am confused as to the issue.

Is the version of Motive Tracker too old for the version of unreal that I am working in?

Hi Jonathon,

Motive 1.5 is quite old and there have been changes to the streaming format since the time that was the primary version. The plugin may not work unless you upgrade to a current version.
