The Data Management tab of the Communications window provides functionality for storing and managing all data associated with your motion capture files. Data is organized in a hierarchical structure, with data and information stored in relevant nodes.

For a video guide to database management, see the Vicon video, proEclipse: Preparing and managing your database, which is available on YouTube.

The default location of Data Management is on a tab at the bottom of the Communications window. If you prefer, you can click the buttons at the top right of the Communications window to un-dock it and display it full-screen. To toggle the display of the Data Management tab, press F2.

You can also choose to hide the entire Communications pane, in which the Data Management tab appears, when you load a trial. To do this, on the Window menu, select the Close Communications Pane on Trial Load option. Alternatively, to temporarily hide/reveal the Communications pane, double-click any of its tabs.

By default, the last opened database is loaded when you restart Nexus.
