Labeling using marker set. This video uses Motive 1.10. Creation of the MarkerSet may be slightly different.

The MarkerSet is a type of assets in Motive. It is the most fundamental method of grouping related markers, and this can be used to manually label individual markers in post-processing of captured data using the Labeling pane. Note that MarkerSets are used for manual labeling only. For automatic labeling during live mode, a Rigid Body asset or a Skeleton asset is necessary.

Since creating rigid bodies, or skeletons, groups the markers in each set and automatically labels them, MarkerSets are not commonly used in the processing workflow. However, they are still useful for marker-specific tracking applications or when the marker labeling is done in pipelines other than auto-labeling. Also, marker sets are useful when organizing and reassigning the labels.

Create MarkerSet

To create a MarkerSet, click the IconAdd.png icon under the Assets pane and select New Marker Set.

Adding Labels

Once a MarkerSet asset is created, its list of labels can be managed using the Markersets pane. First of all, markerset assets must be selected in Motive and the corresponding asset will be listed on the markerset pane. Then, new marker labels can be added by clicking the IconAdd.png Icon. If you wish to create multiple marker labels at once, they can added by typing in the labels or copying and pasting a list of labels (a carriage-return delimited) from the windows clipboard onto the pane as shown in the image below..(Press Ctrl+V in the Marker List window).
