Before using Manus VR gloves in Motive, please ensure all gloves have been paired, calibrated and are able to report data from Manus software. This is a crucial first step for the successful use of Manus Gloves with Motive software.
Please note that steps required for setting up the glove may change depending on Manus Software versions. For the latest information, please refer to the manufacturer documentation
Note: We suggest that Manus Dashboard be closed to resolve some performance issues in Motive.
Before starting Motive, please make sure to launch Manus Dashboard and Manus Core software first.
Launch Motive. If the Manus VR is properly set up on the computer, connected gloves will be listed under the Devices pane.
Use the Builder pane to define a skeleton asset in Motive. You can use any skeleton model that is not designed to track fingers using motion capture data. The recommended skeletons models to use are the Core 50 or Baseline 41.
After a skeleton has been defined, pair the skeleton to the glove device. Open the Devices pane, right-click on the listed glove device, and pair it to the skeleton as shown in the screenshot below.
Once the glove has been configured and paired with the created skeleton, the fingers will be tracking in Motive.
Once Motive starts tracking the glove, the finger tracking data can be outputted for various applications. Real-time finger data can be streamed into any NatNet client, and recorded finger data can be exported into other file formats. For instructions on outputting tracking data from Motive, refer to the following pages:
