Tracking Mode Settings

After BTSensors are calibrated, minor adjustments need to be entered in Motive for the system to switch from BTSensor calibration to tracking mode. These settings enable fixture tracking to occur. Once tracking mode is configured, no changes to the Motive project are needed unless BTSensors were moved or bumped since BTSensor calibration. 

Motive 2

To configure BTSensors for normal tracking

  1. In Motive, change the layout to Configuration preset. From the Layout menu, choose Configuration.
    • Tip: You may click the drop-down box at the right-hand side of the main toolbar and click Configuration from the drop-down menu of layout presets.
  2. In Devices window, click Filters under the Properties section.
  3. On the Filters section, click the Filters Type drop-down menu and click None.
  4. In the Application Settings window, click the Live Reconstruction tab.
  5. On the Live Reconstruction tab, select the Enable Point Cloud Reconstruction checkbox.
  6. On the Reconstruction Settings section, click Marker Labeling Mode and then click Active and Passive Markers or Active Markers Only to set Motive for tracking.
    • Result: Active and passive markers or only active markers are displayed on the Perspective View window.
  7. In the Streaming window, under the OptiTrack Streaming Engine heading, select the Broadcast Frame Data checkbox.
    • Under the Network Interface Selection heading, set the Local Interface field to Local loopback.
    • Close the Data Streaming window.
  8. In the Synchronization window, click the Synchronization drop-down box and then click Custom Synchronization.
  9. Under the Sync Input heading in the Details section, click the Source drop-down menu and then click Reserved.
  10. Under the Sync Input heading in the Details section, type 5000 on the Sync Offset (us) field.
  11. On the Synchronization section, click Apply.

Note: The Input Monitor section can be used to immediately check if the TimeKeeper is connected correctly to the eSync and Motive. In the Reserved field of the Input Monitor section, there should be a value of around 100 Hz (or close to this number). This means Motive is receiving the TimeKeeper sync signal. If this number is not in the range of 99.998 - 100.004 Hz (or close) there may be a configuration issue with the TimeKeeper, and you should report the issue to a BTE to be resolved.
