Manus Core 2.0 | Settings Tab

We are looking for new colleagues.

Introduction


In the Settings Panel, you can adjust certain features of MANUS Core.

Overall


UI Scale

The Dashboard uses your Windows scaling settings to determine how large UI elements should be.

If you want to adjust the size of interface elements independent of your Windows scaling, simply use the dropdown menu to select a different UI scale.

Whether you are looking at the Dashboard on a large TV from far away in your mocap space or you’re sitting behind your desk, you can easily see and use the Dashboard.

Render to VR headset


If you want to visualize your gloves or Polygon in VR, make sure that this checkbox is on.

Disable automatic user creation


When you connect a new device, MANUS Core will automatically take you to the first time setup. You can disable this option.

Connection dialog


Hardware


Force firmware update

In case your device got disconnected during firmware update and did not update correctly, you can go through the installation process again if you check this box on.

Automatic Channel Optimization

Each dongle automatically selects the best available wireless channel when you start MANUS Core.

If you want your glove and dongle pairs to always use a specific wireless channel, for example when you're using many wireless devices at the same time, you can disable this automatic channel selection.

Glove


Disable Prime Series IMU Data

The MANUS Prime II & X Series gloves use 2 kinds of sensors: orientation sensors and bend sensors.

When you experience sensor drift, you can decide to disable the orientation sensors. With these settings, you can select to only use the bending sensor data.

3D Hand Orientation

The hand orientation slider allows you to rotate the visualization of the digital hand in the Gloves Hand Viewer.

With this setting you can make the finger articulation more visible when looking at your digital hand.

Tracking


Keep tracker position

This option lets you retain the last known tracker position in the viewport after it loses connection.

Tracker timeout

If this option is on, the trackers that lose connection will disappear from the viewport.

Tracker timeout time

You can set the amount of time that will have to pass before a disconnected tracker disappears from the viewport (in seconds)

Tracking systems

In this panel you can configure the ART tracking system. You can turn it on and off using the checkbox.

Here you can set the frame rate for the system.

Port

In this panel you can configure your SteamVR tracking system. You can turn it on and off using the checkbox.

Recording


MANUS Core has triggered recording functionality for OptiTrack Motive and Vicon Shogun.

Motive trigger

If you are using OptiTrack Motive software and you want the recording of the hands to start at the same time, make sure this checkbox is on.

Motive port

For Motive you will need to enable the Remote Trigger functionality inside Motive.

Then in the Manus Dashboard enable the Motive trigger and set the port 2 higher than your command port.

By default, this means your trigger port number will be 1512.

Vicon Shogun trigger

If you are using Vicon Shogun software and you want the recording of the hands to start at the same time, make sure this checkbox is on.

Vicon Shogun port

For Shogun you will need to enable the Triggered Capture functionality inside Shogun.

You can set your trigger port to a specific number, by default it is set to port 30.

Then in the Manus Dashboard also enable the Vicon Shogun trigger and set the port to the same number as in Shogun.

Timecode


MANUS Core has built in timecode functionality

Interface

Here you can choose the device you are plugged into. If you don’t see your device, you can refresh the list and try again.

Genlock

This setting allows you to turn on and off the Genlock functionality. By default, it’s turned on.

Keep interface alive

If you disconnect your device and you plug it in again, it will automatically reconnect.
