Deletes redundant markers from the list of selected markers.

Optical motion capture systems frequently generate redundant trajectories, particularly in cases where the markers to be tracked are near the physical edges of the capture volume. The deleteRedundant command allows you to automatically identify and remove these artifacts by comparing markers with similar names (e.g. LFHD, LFHD_1, LFHD_2, etc).

However, this command will not remove data that is unique and, therefore, possibly useful. If the -tolerance flag is not used, the default setting is 20mm. This operation is applied to the set of selected markers.
