NatNet In CHOP
The NatNet In CHOP is used to receive tracking data over the network data from OptiTrack systems. Currently the only data that is received is Rigid Body data.
Parameters - NatNet In Page
active - While on, the CHOP receives information, while off no updating occurs.
connectiontype - Set this to the connection mode the server is set to.
netaddress - The computer name or IP address of the server computer. You can use an IP address (e.g.
100.123.45.78) or the computer's network name can be used directly. If you put "
localhost", it means the other end of the pipe is on the same computer. When using Multicast mode this should still be set to the server's address, not the multicast address. The server will negotiate the multicast address with the client and make it connect to it automatically.
localaddress - In cases where your computer has multiple network cards and IP address, this tells the node which local IP address to bind to for it's communication. For example say you have a WIFI connection whose IP address is 192.168.0.100 and a ethernet connection whose IP address is 188.8.131.52. If you want the node to communicate over the WIFI you can put 192.168.0.100 or 192.168.0.* into this parameter. If you want the node to communicate via the ethernet you'd set this to 184.108.40.206 or 24.100.200.* (or even 24.100.*.* etc.). Systems with a single network connection can leave this parameter blank.
commandport - The command network port of the server.
dataport - The data port of the server.
rate - The rate at which the data should be queried.
resetpulse - Reset the data in this node.
