PosiStageNet CHOP

Summary

This operator decodes PosiStageNet protocol data into CHOP channels. PosiStageNet will track any number of objects and output their position, orientation, speed, acceleration, or the objects' target position.

PosiStageNet is a data exchange protocol created by VYV and MA Lighting, and has applications in on-stage lighting, sound, and projection mapping.

Parameters - Setup Page

Active active - If turned off, the PosiStageNet CHOP will stop receiving data.

Network Address netaddress - Set this parameter to the network address of the PosiStageNet server, device, or software.

Port port - By default, TCP Port uses 56565. Firewall settings may need to be adjusted to allow for the PosiStageNet CHOP to communicate properly.

Sample Rate samplerate - Specify the rate at which the incoming data is sampled.

Position pos - Include position channels.

Orientation ori - Include orientation channels as Euler angles.

Speed speed - Include speed channels.

Acceleration accel - Include acceleration channels.

Target Position targetpos - Include the target position as channels.

Reset Pulse resetpulse - This button resets the channels. This will clear all the data channels in the CHOP, so any untracked data will be removed


Parameters - Common Page

Time Slice timeslice - Turning this on forces the channels to be "Time Sliced". A Time Slice is the time between the last cook frame and the current cook frame.

Scope scope - To determine which channels get affected, some CHOPs use a Scope string on the Common page.

Sample Rate Match srselect - - Handle cases where multiple input CHOPs' sample rates are different. When Resampling occurs, the curves are interpolated according to the Interpolation Method Option, or "Linear" if the Interpolate Options are not available.

  • Resample At First Input's Rate first - Use rate of first input to resample others.
  • Resample At Maximum Rate max - Resample to the highest sample rate.
  • Resample At Minimum Rate min - Resample to the lowest sample rate.
  • Error If Rates Differ err - Doesn't accept conflicting sample rates.

Export Method exportmethod - - This will determine how to connect the CHOP channel to the parameter. Refer to the Export article for more information.

  • DAT Table by Index datindex - Uses the docked DAT table and references the channel via the index of the channel in the CHOP.
  • DAT Table by Name datname - Uses the docked DAT table and references the channel via the name of the channel in the CHOP.
  • Channel Name is Path:Parameter autoname - The channel is the full destination of where to export to, such has geo1/transform1:tx.

Export Root autoexportroot - This path points to the root node where all of the paths that exporting by Channel Name is Path:Parameter are relative to.

Export Table exporttable - The DAT used to hold the export information when using the DAT Table Export Methods (See above).
