The left-hand section of the Data pane is used to list out the sessions that are loaded in Motive. Session folders group multiple associated Take files in Motive, and they can be imported simply by dragging-and-dropping or importing a folder into the data management pane. When a session folder is loaded, all of the Take files within the folder are loaded altogether.
In the list of session folders, a currently loaded session folder will be denoted with a flag symbol , and a selected session folder will be highlighted in white.
What happened to the Project TTP Files?
The TTP project file format is deprecated starting from the 2.0 release. Now, recorded Takes will be managed by simply loading the session folders directly onto the new Data pane. For exporting and importing the software setting configurations, the Motive profile file format will replace the previous role of the TTP file. In the Motive profile, software configurations such as reconstruction settings, application settings, data streaming settings, and many other settings will be contained. Camera calibration will no longer be saved in TTP files, but they will be saved in the calibration file (CAL) only.
TTP files can still be loaded in Motive 2.0. However, we suggest moving away from using TTP files.
When a session folder is selected, associated Take files and their descriptions are listed in a table format on the right-hand side of the Data pane. For each Take, general descriptions and basic information are shown in the columns of the respective row. To view additional descriptions, click on the pane menu, select the Advanced option, and all of the descriptions will be listed. For each of the enabled columns, you can click on the arrow next to it to sort up/down the list of Takes depending on the category.
If 3D data does not exist on a Take, it can be derived from 2D data by performing the reconstruction pipeline. See Reconstruction page for more details.
A search bar is located at the bottom of the Data pane, and you can search a selected session folder using any number of keywords and search filters. Motive will use the text in the input field to list out the matching Takes from the selected session folder. Unless otherwise specified, the search filter will scope to all of the columns.

The table layout can also be customized. To do so, go to the pane menu and select New or any of the previously customized layouts. Once you are in a customizable layout, right-click on the top header bar and add or remove categories from the table.
A list of take names can be imported from either a CSV file or carriage return texts that contain a take name on each line. Using this feature, you can plan, organize, and create a list of capture names ahead of actual recording. Once take names have been imported, a list of empty takes with the corresponding names will be listed for the selected session folder.
In the Data pane, context menu for captured Takes can be brought up by clicking on the icon or by right-clicking on a selected Take(s). The context menu lists out the options which can be used to perform corresponding pipelines on the selected Take(s). The menu contains a lot of essential pipelines such as reconstruction, auto-label, data export and many others. Available options are listed below.
