Settings: General

Default Application Settings can be recovered by Reset Application Settings under the Edit Tools tab from the main Toolbar.

Live Reconstruction

Reconstruction tab contains a list of parameters for the real-time Point Cloud reconstruction engine.

Reconstruction in motion capture is a process of deriving 3D points from 2D coordinate information obtained from captured images, and the Point Cloud is the core engine that runs the reconstruction process. The reconstruction settings in the Application Settings modifies the engine's parameters for real-time reconstructions. These settings can be modified to optimize the quality of reconstructions in Live mode depending on the conditions of the capture and what you're trying to achieve. Use the 2D Mode to live-monitor the reconstruction outcomes from the configured settings.



Take Suffix Format String

Sets the separator (_) and string format specifiers (%03d) for the suffix added after existing file names.

Numeric LEDs

Enable or disable the LED panel in front of cameras that displays assigned camera numbers.

Auto Archive Takes

Enable/Disable auto-archiving of Takes when trimming Takes

Save Data Folder

Motive persists all of the session folders that are imported into the Data pane so that the users don't have to re-import them again after closing out of the application. If this is set to false, the session folders will no longer be persisted, and only the default session folder will always be loaded.

Startup Options

Restore Calibration

Automatically loads the previous, or last saved, calibration setting when starting Motive.

Camera ID

Sets how Camera IDs are assigned for each camera in a setup. Available options are By Location and By Serial Number. When assigning by location, camera IDs will be given following the positional order in clockwise direction, starting from the -X and -Z quadrant in respect to the origin.

Device Profile

Sets the default device profile, XML format, to load onto Motive. The device profile determines and configures the settings for peripheral devices such as force plates, NI-DAQ, or navigation controllers.

Aim Assist Button

Switch to MJPEG

Configures the Aim Assist button. Sets whether the button will switch the camera to MJPEG mode and back to the default camera group record mode. Valid options are: True (default) and False.

Aiming Crosshairs

Sets whether the camera button will display the aiming crosshairs on the MJPEG view of the camera. Valid options are True (default), False.

Aiming Button LED

Enables or disables LED illumination on the Aim Assist button behind Prime Series cameras.

Camera Status Ring

Controls the color of the RGB Status Indicator Ring (Prime Series cameras only). Options include distinct indications for Live, Recording, Playback, Selection and Scene camera statuses, and you can choose the color for the corresponding camera status.

Live Color

(Default: Blue) Sets the indicator ring color for cameras in Live mode. Default: Blue

Recording Color

(Default: Red) Sets the indicator ring color for cameras when recording a capture.

Playback Color

(Default: Black) Sets the indicator ring color for cameras when Motive is in playback mode.

Selection Color

(Default: Yellow) Sets the indicator ring color for cameras that are selected in Motive.

Scene Camera

(Default: Orange) Sets the indicator ring color for cameras that are set as the reference camera in Motive.


LLDP (PoE+) Detection

Enables detection of PoE+ switches by High Power cameras (Prime 17W and Prime 41). LLDP allows the cameras to communicate directly with the switch and determine power availability to increase output to the IR LED rings. When using Ethernet switches that are not PoE+ Enabled or switches that are not LLDP enabled, cameras will not go into the high power mode even with this setting enabled.

Strobe On During Playback

Keeps the camera IR strobe on at all times, even during the playback mode.
