Problem with MotionCapture and Polhemus using the Vizard Plugin


I'm a psychology researcher and my lab is trying to use the Polhemus Liberty motion tracker with Motion Builder 2013 via the Vizard plugin and are experiencing a strange problem. The motion tracking markers are freezing in MotionBuilder every 10 seconds, it seems to freeze for about 4 seconds then the cycle starts again. From the device window we can see that the data stream from the Polhemus device is still transmitting data to MotionBuilder during the freeze. However, for some reason this is not being sent to the Viewer window which displays the animation of the markers. If anyone has come across a similar problem, and knows how to resolve it, please get in touch.

Hi Harry,

have you tried recording the data and playback ? is there the same gaps present ?

All the best,
