Improved real-time skeleton tracking

Motive is better than ever at capturing high character counts and complex motions, offering greater stability during heavy marker occlusion and faster recovery after tracking loss.


New rigid body engine

Motive's new rigid body engine offers more accurate 6DoF data, significantly higher marker counts, and reduced noise and latency—especially in diffcult tracking cases like quadrotor swarms and other high-speed, high-density applications.

MATLAB interface with NatNet 2.5

The NatNet SDK features a new MATLAB .NET interface and sample program (MatNet.m) for live streaming markers, rigid bodies, or skeletons. The MatNet sample program works directly with MATLAB core, requiring no additional MATLAB modules.

New editing & data management tools

You can now record Motive’s real-time marker, rigid body, and skeleton solves—potentially removing the need to trajectorize in post. Data cleanup is also more powerful, with new options for pattern and model-based gap filling.
