Applications Setting Pages:

2D


2D view settings from the Application Settings panel.

2D tab under the view settings lists out display settings for the Camera View in Motive.

Background

Sets the background color of the Camera View.

Backproject Selected Marker

Enables markers selected from the 3D Perspective View to be also highlighted with yellow crosshairs in the 2D camera view, based on calculated position. Crosshairs that are not directly over the marker tend to indicate occlusion or poor camera calibration.
Markers selected in the perspective view get marked with yellow crosshairs.

Show Camera Filters

When enabled, Camera View shows which markers have been filtered out by the camera's circularity and size filter. This is enabled by default and is useful for inspecting why certain cameras are not tracking a specific markers in the view.
  • Reflection seen from a camera that has been filtered by circle.
  • Grayscale view of the filtered reflection.

3D


3D view settings from the Application Settings panel.

3D tab under the view settings lists out display settings for the Perspective View in Motive.

Background

Sets the background color of the Perspective View.

Fog Effect

Turns a gradient “fog” effect on in the Perspective View.

Grid Color

Selects the color of the ground plane grid in the Perspective View.

Grid Size

Selects the size of the ground plane grid in the Perspective View. Specifically, it sets the number of grids along the positive and negative direction in both the X and Z axis. Each grid represents 20cm x 20cm in size within a calibrated volume.

Floor Plane

When enabled, Motive will display the floor plane in the Perspective View. This is disabled by default to only show the floor grid.

Selection Color

Sets the color of selections in the 3D view port.

Heads Up Display

Coordinate Axis

Displays the coordinate axis in the 3D view port.

Timecode

Determines where timecode gets displayed in Motive. Timecode can be displayed either on the Perspective View or the Control Deck or hidden entirely. Timecode will be available only when the timecode signal is inputted through the eSync.

Marker Details

Show or hide marker count report located at the bottom-right corner of the Perspective View.

Overlays the OptiTrack logo over top of the Perspective View.

Frame Rate

Overlays refresh rate of the display on the Perspective View.

Markers

Size

Determines whether marker sizes in the 3D Perspective View are represented by the calculated size or overwritten with a set diameter.

Custom Size

When the Marker Size setting above is set to Custom, the diameter of the 3D markers will all be fixed to the inputted diameter.

Labeled

[Advanced] Sets the color for labeled markers. Markers that are labeled using either rigid body or skeleton solve will be colored according to their asset properties.

Passive

Sets the color for passive markers in the 3D viewport. Retro-reflective markers or continuously illuminating IR LEDs will be recognized as passive markers in Motive.

Active

Sets the color for active markers in the 3D viewport.

Measurement

Sets the color for measurement markers that are sampled using the Measurement Probe.

Marker Info

When this is set to true. 3D positions and estimated diameter of selected markers will be displayed on the 3D viewport.
AppSettings MarkerInfo 21.png

Marker History

Displays a history trail of marker positions over time.

Only Selected History

When both the marker history and this setting is enabled, marker history trail will be shown for only selected markers in the viewport.

History Length

Number of past frames for showing the marker history.

Cameras

Tracking

Sets the color of tracking cameras in the 3D Perspective View. Cameras that are set to Object mode or Precision mode will be considered as tracking cameras in Motive.

reference

Sets the color of reference cameras in the 3D Perspective View. Cameras that are capturing reference MJPEG grayscale videos or color videos, for Prime Colors, will be considered as reference cameras.

Rays

Tracked

Sets the color for Tracked Rays in the 3D Perspective View.

Unlabeled

Sets the color for unlabeled rays in the 3D Perspective View.

Untracked

Sets the color for untracked rays in the 3D Perspective View.

Capture Volume

Color

Sets the color used for visualizing the capture volume.

Overlap

Minimum number of cameras required for their FOV to overlap when visualizing the capture volume.

Graphs


Plotting 6 DoF data for a rigid body in the Graph View pane.

Color Scheme

Colors used for plot guidelines in the Graph View pane.

Background

Background color used for the plots.

Autoscale

When enabled, y-axis of each plot will autoscale to fit all the data in the view. It will also zoom automatically for best visualization. For fixed y-plot ranges, this setting can be disabled. See Graph View pane for more information.

Preferred Live Layout

Preferred graph layout used for Live mode.

Preferred Edit Layout

Preferred graph layout used for Edit mode.

Scope Duration

The scope of domain range, in frames, used for plotting graphs.
