Can you give cameras a label?

Post by Blacktraxuser » Wed Jan 20, 2021 8:46 pm

Hi team

Fairly new to motive, I've searched the wiki and the forum but I can't find anything useful so far.

Just wondering if there's a way to label the cameras so that a name shows up in the device list rather than just 'camera 10' etc. Ideally I would like to give each camera a label of it's location to help easily identify them. Is this possible?

Hi John,

It is not possible to label the cameras, but they should be numbered continuously after you complete a calibration.
After setting the ground plane, if you look around the perimeter, you should find that the camera numbers are in order. This numbering helps when trying to locate a specific camera, as does observing its position in the 3D perspective.

If using Prime cameras, you can select the camera to have its status ring light up yellow, making it even easier to locate.
