Before you can use your Vicon Nexus system, you must configure the system for motion capture. After this, you prepare a hierarchy of folders in which to store all the files associated with your motion capture trials.

These procedures are explained in the following topics:

Before you begin to configure your Vicon system, ensure that:

  • Your Vicon system hardware (including the Vicon cameras, Vicon connectivity units, and any supported third-party devices) is set up and connected and Nexus is installed and licensed. Your Vicon system may have been professionally installed by a Vicon Support engineer.
    • If you are installing the system yourself, for full details on installing system hardware, see the Vicon documentation that was supplied with your hardware, and for installing and licensing the software, see Installing and licensing Vicon Nexus.
    • If you are using a FLIR video camera as part of your Nexus system, see also the FLIR Video Cameras Setup Guide.
  • Vicon Nexus software is licensed using Safenet licensing and the Vicon Product Licensing tool. Ensure that the licensing drivers are installed on the host PC, and that the dongle is plugged into an appropriate port (parallel or USB) on the computer while you are running the application software.
  • The IP address for the Ethernet card on the host PC is set to using the default IP address range (for details, see Configuring network card settings on the Vicon documentation website).
