Open Hand Engine and now if you set up your gloves and hit capture in your software of choice then Hand Engine recording will be triggered simultaneously as long as it is listening to the UDP port corresponding to the correct broadcast message from your software of choice.
Xsens - MVN
To properly send a message from MVN, go to Options > Network Streamer, and add a stream to the computer running Hand Engine.
Type the IP address of the computer running Hand Engine in the “host” field and make sure that the port number matches what you chose in the Hand Engine Remote Trigger box.
In the stream, the only box that should be checked is the “Network Sync XML”. The stream settings will automatically save when you click close.
When the proper settings are ready and both systems are calibrated, press the record button in MVN to simultaneously trigger Hand Engine. Data start and stop times will match as well as the naming convention and take a number.
