Object Tracking

Object tracking technologies are 3rd party solutions that provide object tracking data such as location, rotation, acceleration and others.

In this chapter, we will go through the object tracking technologies that LightAct supports. In general, the workflow is very similar for all of them and consists of 2 steps only:

  1. Create an appropriate Device Receiver node

  2. Create a corresponding Read node in the layouts or use a generic Read Tracker node

One new feature, compared to camera tracking devices, is that you can check in checkboxes which data values you wish to filter. For example, if we check only Position and Orientation, then only these 2 values will be received. On the screenshot below all values will be received.

Generic approach

Every tracking technology is a bit different and the data they provide differs too. However, all of them provide at least Position and Orientation.

Therefore, you can also use Read Tracker node which works with all tracking technologies.
