NatNet2OSC

Motive is sending its tracking data in its native NatNet – Protocoll. The NatNetThree2OSC application receives the NatNet datastream, translates it into an OSC format and passes it on as an UDP-stream to a chosen IP address and port.

There are two different NatNet protocolls, and for each exists a different solution, NatNet2 for Motive1.x or NatNet3 for Motive2.x.

NatNet2 for Motive1.x

The NatNetTwo2OSC software is located under:

D:\00_Core\NatNet2OSC\Motive1.x

inside this folder is there is a batchfile called Motive1_to_App. Right-click – open and you can edit the startup parameters:

D:\00_Core\NatNet2OSC\Motive1.x\NatNet2OSC 127.0.0.1 54321 239.255.42.99 0 0

  • <D:\00_Core\NatNet2OSC\Motive1.x> is the path to the NatNet2OSC.exe
  • <OscSendIP (127.0.0.1)>
  • <OscSendPort (54321)>
  • <Multicast IP (239.255.42.99)>
  • <verbose [1]>

If you want to create another batchfile, simply copy this file and change the settings accordingly.

NatNet3 for Motive2.x

The NatNetThree2OSC software is located under:

D:\00_Core\NatNet2OSC\Motive2.x

 

The script files are inside

D:\00_Core\NatNet2OSC\scripts

 

iight-click – open and you can edit the startup parameters:

D:\00_Core\NatNet2OSC\Motive2.x\NatNetThree2OSC --localIP=10.128.96.182 --motiveIP=10.128.96.102 --oscSendIP=10.128.96.182 --oscSendPort=54321 --oscCtrlPort=23456 --oscMode=max --yup2zup=true

 

  • D:\Software\NatNet2OSC\Motive2.x\NatNetThree2OSC is the path to the NatNetThree2OSC.exe
  • –localIP=10.128.96.182 is the IP of the machine this script is running on
  • –motiveIP=10.128.96.102 is the IP of the machine motive is running on
  • –oscSendIP=10.128.96.182 is the IP of the machine OSC is beeing sent to
  • –oscSendPort=54321 is the port OSC data is sent to
  • –oscCtrlPort=23456 is the listening port for controlling motive
  • –oscMode=max (or isadora, or touch –  separated by a comma)
  • –yup2zup=true transforms all the data from y-up to z-up
