The DataObjectTracker plug-in tracks the controlled container and sends the selected attribute values to a defined DataPool variable (DataField).

Note: This plug-in is located in: Plugins -> Container plug-ins -> Data

Information: DataPool plug-ins only work properly on a single channel on the same machine.

DataObjectTracker Properties

  • Destination Field: Assigns container values to DataObjectTracker from the named DataField.

  • Track Type: Defines which container attributes are tracked by the DataObjectTracker.

  • Format: Defines the format by which the attribute values are sent to the Destination Field.

  • Track when hidden: Defines if the object tracks when it is hidden.

  • Offset X/Y/Z: Adds a fixed value to the current values of the container, in the X/Y/Z axis, before setting the values in the Destination Field.

  • Scale X/Y/Z: Multiplies a fixed value by the current values of the container’s scale, in the X/Y/Z axis, before setting the values in the Destination Field.

  • Absolute Position: Refers all read values from the container in relation to its top parent node (i.e. the returned values include all position, rotation or scaling values of all parent containers of the controlled container) when set to On. When set to Off, all values read from the container refer to the container itself in relation to its position, rotation or scaling.
