Info Pane

The Info pane in Motive displays real-time tracking information of a rigid body selected in Motive. This pane can be accessed under the View tab in Motive or by clicking Toolbar Info.png icon on the main toolbar. This pane lists out real-time tracking information for a selected rigid body in Motive. Reported data includes a total number of tracked rigid body markers, mean errors for each of them, and the 6 Degree of Freedom (position and orientation) tracking data for the rigid body.


Euler Angles

There are many potential combinations of Euler angles so it is important to understand the order in which rotations are applied, the handedness of the coordinate system, and the axis (positive or negative) that each rotation is applied about. The following conventions are used for representing Euler orientation in Motive:

  • Rotation order: XYZ
  • All coordinates are *right-handed*
  • Pitch is degrees about the X axis
  • Yaw is degrees about the Y axis
  • Roll is degrees about the Z axis
  • Position values are in millimeters
