Tracking Bar Coordinate System

The OptiTrack Duo/Trio tracking bars are factory calibrated and there is no need to calibrate the cameras to use the system. By default, the tracking volume is set at the center origin of the cameras and the axis are oriented so that Z-axis is forward, Y-axis is up, X-axis is left

Tracking Bar Coordinate System

If you wish to change the location and orientation of the global axis, you can use the Coordinate Systems Tool which can be found under the Tools tab.

  2. [Motive] Open the Coordinate System Tools pane under the Tools tab.

  3. [Motive] Select the Calibration square markers from the Perspective View pane

  4. [Motive] Click the Set Ground Plane button from the Coordinate System Tools pane, and the global origin will be adjusted.
