Motive 3.0
  • Motive 3.0

    Motive 3.0 optical motion capture software delivers vastly improved skeletal and bone tracking precision, and helps users efficiently capture accurate data and produce visually compelling CG content.


    Built around a new Quantum Solver that helps users navigate even the most difficult tracking situations with heavy marker occlusion, Motive 3.0 provides robust, reliable data and exceptional results. Additional enhancements include tracking more than 300 rigid bodies simultaneously using active and/or passive markers, precision finger tracking with integrated Manus VR gloves, and anchor markers to aid automated calibration and comprehensive marker labeling.

    New Solver
    Tracking Made Easy. Quality tracking out of the box with little to no property changes. For example, both active and passive markers now track without changing a single setting.

    Improved Solve Speed
    Large numbers of rigid bodies or skeletons will now track with decreased latency.


    Robust Solve Quality
    Extremely high-quality marker, rigid body, and skeleton data even in difficult tracking situations with high amounts of occlusion.




    Viewer Pane
    Updated 3D viewport rendering to OpenGL and added a variety of visual improvements including the ability to split the viewport, improved visuals for rigid body and skeleton assets, improved context menu options, and color indications for the reference cameras in the scene.


    Settings Window
    Consolidated all the properties and controls that are not changed frequently into one location. This combines the application settings, streaming settings, mouse controls, keyboard hotkeys, and audio settings into one window. Most notably, the hotkey configuration process was redesigned to dramatically improve ease of use.


    Calibration Pane

    The calibration workflow has been radically redesigned to work easily and more efficiently. Instructions have been integrated to help guide and inform users through the manual calibration process, and continuous calibration status is now prominently displayed within the calibration pane.


    Labels Pane
    The labeling pane now features a compact design with several different layout configurations for optimizing manual labeling workflow. This also includes other visual enhancements such as inverting the % meaning of the gaps column as well as other improved visuals.


    Edit Tools Pane
    Controls have been simplified to display the frame ranges of data to which the edit actions will be applied. Visuals have been standardized with other parts of Motive. Added a "Fragment" tool to quickly delete markers that only exist for a few frames.


    Quick Start Window
    Added links to more relevant information for new users to get started and a way to quickly open Motive file types. It now comes an easier to use package, and is also quickly dismissible.


    Constraints Pane
    Generalized the old Markersets pane to work for all asset types allowing the first steps toward totally customizable assets.


    Probe Pane
    Redesigned the interface for using the Digitizing Probe.


    Info Pane
    Rearranged tools for visualizing rigid body settings, and for testing the rough accuracy of your volume.


    Delsys EMG Integration
    Motive now supports the digital integration of Delsys Trigno EMG platforms using Trigno Avanti sensors. Through this, users can collect synchronized EMG data alongside motion capture data.


    Reference Clock Sync
    All force plates (AMTI, Bertec, Kissler), NIDAQs, and other devices now support "Reference Clock Synchronization" with an eSync allowing per-frame synchronization with motion capture data in both live and recording modes.


    Simplified Setup
    The eSync, force plates, and DAQ devices can be set up quickly and easily by right-clicking the devices and choosing new quick set up options.


    Manus Finger Tracking
    Added support for Manus VR finger tracking in Motive.


    Asset Overlay for Video Export
    Reference MJPEG video data can now be exported with the 3D visuals overlaid on top of the video.


    Primeˣ Camera Support
    Primeˣ cameras feature increased tracking range, the capability to capture at higher frame rates (with reduced image resolutions), and the ability to capture full-resolution MJPEG video.


    Large Volume Continuous Calibration
    Improved continuous calibration for systems with any number of cameras.


    Active Anchor Markers for Continuous Calibration
    Active markers may now be used to anchor continuous calibration for special use cases such as when running separate, or detached, camera volumes on the same computer.


    Refactored Pipeline
    Allows tracking data to flow smoothly through Motive. This provides benefits such as showing marker sticks and colors in Live Mode and allows cameras to run perpetually in Live mode for data processing and continuous calibration. This change also provides the basis for major updates on the data processing planned for future releases of Motive.


    Over 250 Cameras at a Time
    Users can now run Motive with over 250 cameras/devices connected at a time, with only one PC.


    Updated Licensing
    A Security Key device is now required instead of the previous Hardware key. License now either work with Motive 3.X+ or Motive 2.X and earlier. The Motive:Body license now only support up to 3 skeletons. A new Motive:Body-Unlimited license type has been added which enables an unlimited number of assets at one time.


    Single User Camera Focusing Workflow Improved
    You may now double-click on the aim assist button to have the software automatically zoom into a single marker near the center of the camera view. This makes the focusing process a lot easier to be accomplished by a single person.


    Added axis-specific dampening
    This allows rigid body assets to lock or dampen movement in a specific axis to simulate steady camera movements.
