Saving 2D image as jpg from OptiTrack cameras

Post by kimtae55 » Fri May 25, 2018 1:20 pm

Since OptiTrack uses many cameras, I want to export 2D images (frames from cameras) as jpg from them. How do I do this using Motive?

Hello kimtae55,

Motive is not able to export frame by frame camera images, only the motion capture data and video.

Cheers,
Steven

Thanks for the reply.

Then is there any provided sdk or api that could be used to do it?
I've been looking at Motive API functions and so on, and I haven't found anything too related yet.

My pleasure kimtae55,

The only way to save images would be to utilize our Camera SDK to directly access the camera video. You would need to figure out how to take the image data and save it into a file though.

This will not work with recorded data, as the Camera SDK is intended for accessing the cameras live.

Cheers,
Steven
